There is a *new threat floating around Facebook. It's another one of those "See Who's Viewing Your Profile" scams. I'm surprised so many people are dying to see who's viewing their profile.
Facebook has added new privacy options that we recommend enabling. The first is a feature called Profile Review. This lets users preview posts other users tag them in. Since rogue Facebook applications can tag users in posts, this is a great way to prevent bogus posts from spreading.
In my experience, the worst thing you can do is share an "ugly" URL or an article that doesn't properly format when you attach it to a Facebook post. Since you're using Facebook for your business, take the extra 30 seconds to spruce up your post before you push it out the door.
The Biebs. The Biebs. We all love her. This latest social engineering attack comes by way of Justin Bieber and a "video that ends his career for good." I guess these sorts of links are irresistible too. It's the guys clicking this one :D
This one just popped-up in the Feed a few minutes ago. Its title is "Yeahh!! It happens on Live Television!" Ironically enough, it's women that are clicking on this post too, not men. :D
Shocker. The '0rgasm' post on Facebook leads to a virus (Trojan). Funny enough, it hasn't been men that have been clicking on the link in the feed. :)
[Warning] Another Facebook Scam -> "This Guy Took A Picture Of His Face Every Day For 8 Years."
I can't say this enough. If the picture or link is "so enticing" you simply HAVE to click it, chances are, it's a virus.
People, please keep an eye on what you click. There are more and more scam links floating around on Facebook these days. Consignment stores, if you're using Facebook for your business, you need to make sure you know about this sort of stuff.
There's a new - and bogus - Facebook App floating through the Feed. It claims to let you "See what your face will look like in 20 years!" If you installed this app (or if you think you did), you should remove this app right away.
