Facebook campaign for baby brother is just plain wrong (PHOTOS)
Facebook has been a staple in many people's lives for a few years now, but recently it seems like some are turning to the social media site for everything. The latest example? Last week, a British woman posted a picture of her toddler holding a sign that read "Daddy says if I get 100,000 likes, I can have a little brother or sister."
Uh, really?! I think that's taking the whole get-this-many-likes photo trend a little too far.
Apparently, Vicki and her husband have actually already decided to have a second child, but wanted to see if they could get their picture to go viral. "We have seen all those photos going around Facebook with hundreds of thousands of likes and just wondered if that could actually happen," she told the Huffington Post.

The photo didn't spread as quickly as they had in other instances, probably because people found it to be kinda strange. I know I did! I mean, using the site as a way to convince your parents to get a pet is one thing, but the decision to have a baby is really personal and should be a serious discussion between a couple. Why would you ever take it such a public forum?
And I'm not the only one to find it weird. Facebook group Mums, Bumps && More spotted Vicki's photo and posted their own picture in what is seriously the best response EVER.
Check it out below, along with 4 other cases in which people have asked their Facebook friends for help:
