Facebook Page setup about the bombing made Saturday
My own fertile head | Fighting Irish

Posted on 04/15/2013 2:57:36 PM PDT by Fighting Irish

If I could figure out how to post screenshots from my phone I would. However, shortly after today's Boston Marathon bombing a friend posted an interesting page he found on Facebook titled: To All Those Injured In The Boston Marathon Explosions.

The Join Facebook date for that page was April 13, 2013.

I took two screen shots from my phone just in case the page got scrubbed. It did. I'm told the average Joe user cannot manipulate dates like that.

The person could have joined 2 days ago and commented on it today. Or are you saying that this person posted that post other than today?

Whoever built the page commented on Saturday about the explosion

Meant to include that some claim FB dates do weird things like that. Why, I wouldn’t know as I don’t do FB.

You So Funny!

But it IS TRUE that a local resident harbored 6 Marathoners and already has released completely different versions of the story.

And the suspect’s father? Also scheduled to testify at the LIBOR hearing.

Coincidence? I think NOT!

Want ot post some background on these pictures? A person on the roof means nothing as it could just be someone who knew they could get a good spot for watching the finish line with no nefarious intentions whatsoever.

Could be.

The picture is viral on twitter, hence the caption.

on facebook from the Young Cons:
about an hour ago

To the people saying “Look at the Facebook page created two days ago about helping victims of the Boston explosions.” You can change the name of your Facebook page. Someone made a page a few days ago and is using this tragedy to get “Likes.” This is no time to politicize and make up conspiracy theories. Let’s all be Americans together and pray for Boston.

You can forward it to a email or forward it to another phone number. I searched facebook for the page you mentioned. Nothing came up. I did find one titled close to that but it was created 34 seconds prior to my search.

I didn't garner that from the post. It said:

The Join Facebook date for that page was April 13, 2013

Now I don't do Face Book, but I read that as the person joined on that date. My wife tells me that that is indeed the date the post was posted and not the date the person joined facebook.

So that is suspicious.

lolol

They are already here.

(Vanity) Was Boston Bombing a false flag operation?

I've watched the video several times. The smoke is white. Was it gun powder? Is this a move to limit gun powder sales? Wanted to have a thread for this discussion.

I can make a page right now that appears it was made in 2008. It is a common way to troll facebook when event like this happens. At that, stuff like this happens almost every time.

Because of the date and people posting on their page about it most likely.

Someone who joined FB Saturday posted today (17 minutes before you captured it). I don’t see anything suspicious about that.

Don’t tweet either. At this point anything is possible. It could also be possible that the person heard the explosions and ran to the roof to see what had happened.

Chris Matthews of MSNBC and Peter Bergen of CNN have already made claims that “Right Wing Terrorists” may be behind the bombing.
But we all know that #OWS terrorists have already committed terrorist acts.

I get that ...but explain why the page went down. If someone is running a sympathy page why wouldn’t you let the thing run it’s course?

Send the photo from the iphone to an email address. Log on to a regular computer, copy the attachment to the computer. The rest is easy.

Or plug in the cable to the iphone. You can then see the files on the iphone. Copying files to the computer is a trivial operation.

It now says “Founded on April 15, 2013”

I think the problem is that the facebook page is titled: Thoughts Go out To All Involved In The Boston Explosions. That facebook page was made Saturday.

The title changes according to your “status”, which is your latest post. So... that doesn’t mean anything either.

That’s not the page. There is a “period” at the end of the page that he’s talking about. Take a look again.

You can change the name of the page. That’s what happened. The page was created before the event, and when the event happened, the guy changed the name of the page to get a bunch of “likes” for the page ... LOL ...

A lot of buildings have roof access and have spots on top for people to just “hang out”. I saw some of them (with chairs and tables and fenced off areas) in the aerial views of the scene.

No, that’s not the date that the “person” joined, but that’s the date that the “Page” was created. And once a page is created, the name can be changed later in the future. So ... you just create a page, sit around and wait for some big “news event” - change the name to that news event - and “get a lot of likes” ... :-)

Do you see that he “Liked” a bunch of “news pages”. He was obviously waiting for a news event - and when he found one (that would get him a lot of attention) - then he changed the name of the page to that event. And then - he got a lot of “Likes” ... which is what he was trying to do in the first place.

It’s explained by pointing out that it’s not the page. The page you’re referring to has a “period” at the end of it. The “period” counts as the name of the page.

The name of a page doesn’t change according to whatever “status” you post. The name can be changed, but it has to be actively changed through a process that Facebook allows, and you have to go through the process of doing that. The name doesn’t change according to what you post.

You Tube is already busy — fake smoke, fake victims, crisis actors, fake blood, fake glass — it’s all a Hoax.

Can’t wait to ignore their newest productions.
