Label in View Controller?

Hi, When I run the app, the label did change. But in my view controller, the label still says "Some Fact Goes Here". Is that normal? Dont we need to change that to make things more clear? Thanks

The use of an IBOutlet changes the text at runtime meaning that this change happens everytime the app runs . However, this change is not reflected in the interface builder, as it does not always show how the app will appear at runtime.
