I'm a bit confused...
Your photo is a copy of one taken six years ago, and used on a pest control company's web site, where it is already identified as a cockroach.
And the exact same image crops up on Facebook (various usernames) and pinterest.

I'm going to give the poster who started the thread the benefit of the doubt that they are genuinely interested to know what the creature is as they have posted on other threads without including spam images. However, if it happens again, I will be deleting their account.
This is definitely a cockroach (order Dictyoptera, family Blattidae). To me, it looks much like the Australian species, Periplaneta australasiae, although I'm not sure about that.
