Hoax or Fact:

Hoax.

Analysis:

The Facebook message shows a picture of a baby with tumor developed around her left ear, saying that she is suffering from Brain Tumor, and that Facebook is going to donate her money for liking, commenting and sharing the picture on Facebook. The message is not a fact, the story is a hoax.

Firstly, Facebook does not generally donate money to someone based on the number of likes, comments or shares a picture gets. Secondly, the picture shown in the message is a baby girl named Isabel, who was suffering NOT from brain tumor, but from Cancer that spread to her bone marrow (sarcoma tumour). This happened as a result of a birth mark on her ear that was neglected by doctors, which later grew into tumour. Moreover, this incident happened in 2012, and the baby girl was also treated between April-May 2012; while this picture message was shared on Facebook on 6 April, 2013 by a user who probably wanted to share the 'sensitive story' and get some attention. For the complete story of the baby girl, please refer to the news story in the reference section below. Also, in the image section below, you can see some of her pictures.

Facebook is a perfect platform where such kind of sensitive and insensible rumors keep spreading often. Another example of this kind of hoax is the famous picture of a boy child laying on hospital bed, saying 100 Facebook shares of the picture will get him a free heart transplant surgery. Refer

Facebook will not generally donate money to anyone simply based on the number of likes, shares or comments a picture gets. The story is a hoax, the picture need not be shared.
