    The young environmental activist had always claimed that she wrote her own messages on social networks.

    For many hours Thursday, January 9, a Facebook bug allowed its users to see who was actually writing the posts on each page, noted the American blog RedState.

    Celebrities, politicians or blogs… many have been outed as fake posters. And Greta Thunberg, the young climate activist, is one of them.

    By modifying posts or certain pages, it was possible to discover the name and photo of the real contributor. This is how Greta Thunberg’s page was scrutinized. With amazement, the observers discovered that it was obviously not Thunberg herself who posted her messages, but her father, Svante Thunberg, and Adarsh ​​Prathap, an Indian climate activist who officiated as a delegate in the organisation for climate change at the United Nations.

    With a screen capture, one can see the profile of the father and the activist, stamped as authors of the messages.

    However, as RedState recalled, Greta Thunberg had always told people that she was the source of her messages. She said on Facebook on Saturday January 11. “Some people have asked me who manages this page. First, since last spring, I only use Facebook to reproduce what I write on my Twitter and Instagram accounts. Since I chose not to be on Facebook personally (I tried at first, but it was not for me) I use my father’s account to repost the content, because you need another account to moderate a Facebook page,” she tried to justify the lie that she was posting herself.

    “The rest shared on Facebook is none other than content taken up on Twitter and Instagram by the guy who founded the Facebook page Greta Thunberg, namely Adarsh ​​Prathap and he lives in India […] All the texts posted on my Facebook page were of course written by me,” she added.

    Resulting from a source code problem, the bug lasted almost 24 hours. It has exposed several political figures such as Hillary Clinton and Justin Trudeau. But also US celebrities, like Snoop Dogg.
