A number of screenshot elements raise questions. For example, part of the group name and the name of the person who posted the photo became unrecognizable.

Additionally, there is a black padlock next to the date the post is supposed to be published. This means that the message is only visible to the person who posted it. So the person who shared the photo may have taken the screenshot himself and made his name unknown.
