Why do people comment, without reading the article?
So I have noticed this A LOT lately. People comment on a title, other than then the factual content in an article. You can tell they haven’t clicked on to read the article. Because the comments are no where near what actually happened, that clearly states what happened in the article.
A good example and as to why I am thinking about this right now.
Burger King on 11th st was robbed earlier tonight. Admin Will went to go work the scene for me. Thank you Will, Much appreciated! The police parked their vehicles next door at Auto Zone. See the photo below.
People are commenting and thinking it is Auto Zone, based on the photo posted that shows all the police parked at Auto Zone. Based on their comments, you can clearly see they did not take 2 seconds to click the link and read and CLEARLY read that it was Burger King that was robbed.
All these people do is make themselves look bad by commenting with bad info. SMH………………
I ask that everyone please take a second and please click on the link and actually READ the content, before making comments.
