I have seen two different people today post about what a crazy day it would be because not only is it Friday the 13th, but it is a full moon. OK, it is Friday the 13th, at least it still is here in California, but I was just outside and it is most definitely not a full moon!

I have not really had that experience, and the full moon looks pretty.

Really? I thought the moon was in the same phase everywhere on the planet. And that's true according to this link: Have you looked at the moon tonight? I did, and it's a half moon here.

@norcal - No, I just believed what I read on Facebook (seriously.) I just went outside, can't even see it because an incoming storm has blown a bunch of clouds in. That's entirely my fault for not checking first. Sorry.

@teamfreak16 Hey, That's a perfect example of what I was talking about. I mean, why would anybody mislead you about the phase of the moon? Somebody probably reposted and an old post from when it was the full moon on Friday the 13th, and others reposted it. There are probably tens of thousands of people out there that think it was a full moon last night.

Friday the 13th is usually a pretty normal day for me. I mean, none of my worst days have been on Friday the 13th.

It's just like anything else. You have to consider the source. People just repeat stuff without checking it out for themselves. I suppose the same could happen here.

Some people do seem to believe what they see on Facebook. It just goes to show how powerful social media has become. I learned about it in a communication and society psychology class. I try not to believe everything and don't use it all the time.

You are right. People tend to believe what they see. Which is good. It's just that they should not believe whatever they are shown.
