It’s a hoax.

Nothing will happen by commenting on a Facebook photo.

The image being circulated may contain a caption such as:

write cow in the comment box and see the magic —

Adding a comment to a Facebook photo will not make the photo change, nor will commenting somehow magically make new information appear on the screen. This is merely a hoax designed to get more likes for a post, which will increase a page’s popularity. These “what happens next” photos are cropping up all over Facebook in order to fool people into liking an image. These massive numbers of likes will raise a page’s popularity and gain more fans (EdgeRank).

The Photo
As far as we can tell, this image was posted online in October 2012 by Brazilian beef producer BeefPoint. Photo credit on that page is given to Richard Heise. They have also posted this image several times on their Facebook page, the first time being here. None of the posts included any information that we could gather as to the circumstances or outcome of this photo.

Cow-Snake

Bottom Line
Images such as these are merely designed fool people into liking an image. If you see this image such as this being circulated, drop a link to this article in the comments to set them straight. As far as the image itself goes, if you have any additional information to add, please leave us a comment below.

    Hate this dang trend. Especially the ones of graphic shock images that say stuff “1 LIKE FOR SUPPORT, 1 SHARE FOR LOVE” to spam my feed full of it. Aggh.
