A Facebook enthusiast, Antoine S., father of two, went as far as asking his 8 year old daughter Tara to skip school in her first period to catch « the optimum sun exposure time » he told The Telegraph. The Dubaï-based father drove his daughter to the beach to take a perfect Facebook profile pic to post in the afternoon and set out to capture a perfect light. « That’s what makes a good picture » Antoine said. Tara failed her grammar exam at Ecole Franco-Libanaise albeit an astonishing 129 likes on the picture: « I even got two thumbs up from my dean ».
The family is now drafting an agenda so as to nail a better score and Antoine wants his daughter to extend her subsequent holiday and skip school in the future in case he needs her for a shooting. « I don’t know about ramadan but we’re thinking 150 for christmas by the tree. I think we can pull it off » says he.
