Sometimes when you’re reading a page, you’re not taking in a lot of information. Maybe you’re not taking in the whole page. Maybe you’re just looking at it briefly.
The problem is that when youre looking at text, your eyes are constantly scanning for objects. So if youre reading text, youre probably looking at a lot of pages, but sometimes youre not reading a page.
These “zombie” images that come up in the search results for words like “bald” and “stupid” are actually a bit more common than one might think. They are likely the results of so-called “retraction”, where someone takes on the persona of someone or something they are unhappy with. That person then uses their retraction to spread rumors about that person or thing online.
Retraction is part of the larger problem of online misinformation. The internet is full of people posting stories and photos that don’t actually exist, or are exaggerated and exaggeratedly untrue. Sometimes, the retraction comes from the original poster, sometimes from an online publication or a website, or sometimes just from a person who has been caught posting a rumor. A good way to avoid this is to look for images that are the same as the original image.
I like the idea of having a look at a photo of the actual subject or a photo of the location where the alleged photo of the subject was taken. It’s an easy way to look for retraction. If the person who claimed the photo isn’t an actual person, then it’s not likely to be retracted.
Another thing that can cause people to post an image or two is sharing it on the web without using a real name. I have seen this happen a lot over the years and it is truly a terrible way to get yourself and your family or friends into trouble. Sometimes even good intentions can be blown out of proportion by people who are posting fake or non-existing images.
The reason you want to post an image or two is that you want to show your family or friends how you did. Like I said, its not funny. I think it’s very easy to post a picture of your family or friends and then just type the name you posted. It’s even possible to post your own image as well, but you can’t just say that you have a family or friends.
Now that I think of it, what do people think of my family photo? I guess its fine to have a few pictures of me, but I would think they would at least be in the same category as my family photo.
It’s easy to just click on a pic of someone you like and make a comment about how your not in their size/shape/facial features. I don’t really have a problem with that, but I think it should be a bit more in-depth. For example, I have a friend who got married in a church. She posted a photo of herself on instagram (and made a comment about how she hates the bride).
I think that would be a great comment for a wedding picture. But instead, the photographer has taken a photo of the bride and her dress, and she has a comment that basically says, “I’m so glad I’m not in her dress. She’s so much prettier than I am.” Her comment was too vague to be considered worthy of a comment, so it just didn’t get a comment. And the bride’s dress looks ridiculous.
