I’ve written before about how Facebook is becoming a spammer and scammer’s paradise. Obviously they’re not reading my blog. It continues to get worse. That’s worrisome as Facebook becomes more our virtual town square every day.
You just got spammed on your Wall, by someone simply tagging you in a photo. Interesting way to do it.
That was a message from my friend Peter. He saw how another friend seemingly tagged all me and all her other friends inside a graphic that was really an ad. She says she didn’t do it.
OKAY….i did not sent anyone a message or poke you….DO NOT OPEN ANYTHING….IT IS A VIRUS…..
Maybe she didn’t do it directly, but by giving permissions to a Facebook app provider she was the enabler. Most of us have grown used to clicking approval or permission without looking at what we’re doing. That is always the case with these attacks.
Facebook approves these scummy apps automatically. That’s got to stop! Facebook is a famously profitable enterprise worth billions. It’s time they took responsibility for what goes on within their virtual walls.
And then there’s this:
C’mon Facebook. Really?
