We wish we could distinguish between genuine Facebook status updates and fake ones that are being updated in the name of "fools Day." Example: A friend has just updated her status saying that she is in terrible labor pain and she is opting for C-section to deliver her baby. In such a situation, you feel like making a phone call to console that person and wish them well but you remember it is a fool's day. Another guy updated his status saying that a senior person in Bunyore has been involved in a road accident along Jogoo Road. I don't know your thoughts but sometime we take fools day too far. You don't wish someone to be involved in a road accident in the name of fools day. Fools day come and go. Which begs the question: How did you draw a distinction between genuine and fake information?
