I think that for the average Faecebook user, they would rather believe the sensationalism of the hoax no matter if it's completely debunked, because the lie is more atttactive to them - it's the evolution of the popularity of the scummy tabloid/Mail/Guardian lies.

Sounds like your wife is not the typical Faecebook user and she should perhaps consider leaving them all to it and not looking at it.

Whatever you think you need Faecebook for, there's always a better way of doing it if you do it properly.
