An Australian teacher wrote a note and asked the internet to make it go viral to teach her students about web safety. It worked, which is more than asking to go viral does for your cousin's YouTube channel where he sings Beyoncé songs. Sorry Devin! 

Please help me with my project. Today is Friday 20th May. I present to fellow teachers next Monday (23rd) and students on Wednesday (25th)

The note reads:

I am a maths teacher and year 9 coordinator at a fantastic high school in Toowoomba, Australia. 

Next week I need to present to the year 9 students about cyber-safety and I wish to see how far this message will go based on my account's security settings.

Please help me by sharing this message as far as you can. I will aim to track the number of "likes" and "shares" and create a mathematical model as well as showing just how far something can go from a small Facebook account.
