Toowoomba Ghost Chasers: Turning Your Shitty Ghosts Into Clickbait

If you don’t carefully manage the paranormal-themed pages you ‘like’ on Facebook you could end up with a constant stream of rubbish ghost photos in your feed that anyone with an ounce of sense would recognise to be faked, photographic artefacts, camera faults, or misidentified objects within the photo causing illusions. Just five minutes spent on the Toowoomba Ghost Chasers Facebook page will provide you with enough of these to last you a lifetime.

The 5 Worst Ghosts of 2014

Since 2010 I have been writing an end-of-year summary of the five ghost stories that made me grumpy or angry because of their rubbish nature and 2014 is in no way different. Technically there are still eleven days left in the year at the time of writing this but I think (read ‘hope‘) it’s safe to assume that Christmas and New Year will keep rubbish ghosts out of the news until 2015.
