Mom leaves “baby” in car as she goes shopping at Target, promising others that he is safe.

You can’t make a move publicly without it getting up on the internet.

The age of viral clips and tales is here, which means that embarrassing, amusing, and sometimes even private movies and photos of us may be uploaded and spread over the digital world in seconds.

While this may undoubtedly be exploited, it can also be used for good – for example, when people are called out for poor behavior.

I can only guess that’s what internet users thought was going on when an Instagram photo went viral in early March purporting to show a note presented by a woman who had left her infant in the car to go shopping at Target.
