London Graffiti Artist Banksy Identity Revealed?

According to National Report, Banksy, the elusive political activist, graffiti artist, painter, film director and long time fugitive was arrested early this morning by London’s Metropolitan Police.  The artist’s name was said to be Paul Horner, a 35-year old male born in Liverpool, England.

This alleged arrest has been just another hoax to try and out the identity of the artist. The article claims the story has been confirmed by BBC and that City of London Police Chief Lyndon Edwards held a press conference to answer questions about Banksy’s arrest. BBC has not confirmed this story and Lyndon Edwards does not exist. The name Paul Horner is also the name given to a Facebook spokesperson who said the site will soon be charging users $2.99 a month. This story was also shown to be a hoax.

The story has been shared more than 200,000 times on Facebook and Twitter and goes to show that people still believe:

Snapchat To Include Ads

Snapchat has announced that they will include ads in users stories.  According to Time, in regards to the ad, the company said “Understandably, a lot of folks want to know why we’re introducing advertisements to our service. The answer is probably unsurprising—we need to make money,” the company said in a blog post. “Advertising allows us to support our service while delivering neat content to Snapchatters.”

The ads will not pop up into users messages. That idea would make users ditch snapchat all together. Instead, the ads will be added to the users stories, and they will have the option to ignore them.

Personally, I have seen two ads pop up in my own story and it has not affected me much. All businesses need to make money and ads are the easiest way to.
