I know it may stun you by from all the corners but that the facts of today! The awe-inspiring video footage of an unidentified woman who got all her Facebook friends – count as 152 – tattooed on her arm is a hoax. Interestingly, it has been revealed by the same company who was behind broadcasting such video over the web.

Rotterdam tatoo artist extraordinaire Dex Moelker came clean to a Dutch newspaper that his unique, conversation-piece tatoo was but a mere promotional campaign. All his efforts behind such act was to advertise the services of firm that specializes in personalized Facebook gifts.

The viral video which thrilled many online website, blogs – including CNN – went viral in just few hours. The video, titled as “My Social tattoo”, first emerged on 30 May and has estimated to receive 1.5 million views from all over the world.

It was claimed that the role model of that video – the woman who got tattooed – took 2 weeks of time to have all her Facebook friends’ pictures on her arm. However, it tricked art just took 2 hours to apply and that washes off in a couple of days.

In a bold move by prettysocial – the company behind the act – admitted the little prank on his Facebook page. In the bold-faced statement company says “We guess you have already heard or seen it, but our viral video has made quite an impact yesterday all over the world! It got everybody talking, even CNN!”

Though this video stunned the whole world but it also showcases the impact and the exponential growth of internet and social media which helped this video to go viral in just few days – without judging its authenticity. The debate over the “information over Internet” mar get re-triggered for its genuinely and reliability. It will also make many countries to give second thought on their initiatives to make online information legally authentic and based on which legal action can be fired.

Anyhow, I don’t see any firm stopgap over here as social media is riding among people and Internet has already moved to IPv6. With so much of improvement and demands in place, a new challenge is ready for authorities to pre-authentication of information – if ever they want to make Internet as reliable source of information.
