How to make any newspaper say whatever you want on Facebook

usvsth3m:

This week the Guardian got into a minor bit hot water for allegedly calling our PM a bad word on the social media:

Amazing social media gaff concerning the @guardian & @David_Cameron. Heads will surely roll for this one… pic.twitter.com/et4R1mgR0G

How could this happen?

It’s very, very simple. Facebook lets you edit the headline of any article you share. Here’s how:

1. Paste the URL into your status box.

2. Wait for the preview to appear.

3. Wait a bit longer than you expected. Ah, there it is.

image

4. Change the headline and summary to anything you want.

5. That’s it. Now it looks like this for anyone sharing it.

Hooray!

Now we just need a way to automatically create more wonderful pictures like this:

Lovely.

Comics That Didn’t Happen

danteshepherd:

I made a comic on Friday, planning to run it on Monday, thinking mainly about Patriots Day and the marathon.  By Saturday, I hated what I’d made - felt like it was based around me thinking of last year strictly in terms of instinct and emotion without any real deeper thought to it.  So I made a different one instead - very different in terms of structure and tone, and something that I came out really happy with.  For the record, though, here’s the original raw image for the comic that I’d made:

You can decide which you would have preferred, but I’ll take the one that actually presents the level-headedness I try to recommend with each STW.

This switching up happens every so often, but usually if I come to hate a comic, it’s after I already posted it.  The last time I made a comic and then didn’t use it was during the Winter Olympics, after watching some crazy snowboarding event.  I don’t know what ran instead, but I hated this one within an hour of making it.

Eh.  Feels mean.  Meaner than I’d prefer.

Oh well.  Back to my creepy basement to make another.


Go click the link for the one he choose to post. It’s amazing and true!
