Have you seen the magic trick on Facebook that asks you to type “jump” to see what happens – but you still can’t figure out what the trick is? Read on and we’ll straighten it out.
It is a “trick” – but the trick is on you! It it nothing more than a hoax to gain likes, shares, and comments.
A popular version of this hoax states:
1. Click picture
2. Write “jump”
3. See what happens
Clicking a picture on Facebook will either open the photo if you’re viewing it from your newsfeed, or if you’re already viewing it full-screen, then it will move to that user’s next photo. Nothing will happen by clicking a Facebook photo!
This is a new variation of a popular image recently that asked people to type “fall” in the comments. Nothing happened there, either.
Don’t be fooled! Anyone you see typing the word “Jump” in the comments apparently didn’t stop to think that they were being fooled – and they didn’t read this article! The next time you see it, link to this article to set them straight!
Here are a few other of these tricky images:
