Question

Nowadays in facebook people always share some app which tell about what will anyone look time after some years, what position they will get, how they will look and also about their future children, lover, their positive /negative characters. It is very popular and surely they do it just for fun.There is a hadith in Saheeh Muslim (2230), that the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wasallam, peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever goes to a fortuneteller and asks him about something, his prayer will not be accepted for forty days.”My question:does the hadith indicates about the people who do this in facebook or any social media?
