Here in the Philippines, a photo of an old woman searching for her husband became viral and was shared 50,000+ times on Facebook. The said picture shows the old lady sitting on the street with a picture of her husband pinned on her dress.

The picture was taken by a Facebook user named Reddie Js, who uploaded the picture for people to share and help the old woman find her husband. The user mentioned that the husband has been missing for two weeks.

After it was posted, more and more people started sharing the picture on their wall and even encouraged other users to do the same. The image caught the attention of some local news channel and it paved way for the reunion of the old couple.
