Facebook said Wednesday that it believes many of their Messianic users have had their profile data scraped by third parties. As a result, these third parties have countless terabytes of images of lions intended to represent the Divine Being.
According to their findings, many of the lions appear to be engulfed in flames or floating in space, often accompanied by a golden menorah or Torah scroll. In some cases the lions appear to be wearing a crown of thorns and/or a tallit. Researchers say that the images tend to be captioned with Paleo-Hebrew letters spelling either the name of God or the phrase “Shabbat shalom.”
