'The amount of misinformation on Facebook, especially during times of crisis, is staggering." - Benjamin Franklin.
For now, this is merely a meme that lives on the internet; a sarcastic and sardonic creation to display the absurdity and scale of inaccurate information on social media.
It is a frightening prospect, but I have no doubt at all that some day this fabricated quote will be used unwittingly by someone who has become so ill-informed and lazy that its illogicality will be lost on them.
