WTF Fun Fact – Streisand Effect

The Streisand effect is a social phenomenon that occurs when an attempt to hide, remove, or censor information has the unintended consequence of further publicizing that information, often via the Internet. It is named as such because entertainer Barbra Streisand attempted to suppress a photograph of her home in 2003, but only made it worse. – WTF Fun Facts
