More rubbish on Facebook

I wasn’t going to post another blog entry, but I have been getting the following on my Facebook news feed constantly for the last couple of days:-

“INSANE: young teen from United Kingdom did SUICIDE in front of web cam – Watch video here ”
“INSANE: young teen from United States did SUICIDE in front of cam – Watch video here”
“HORRIBLE!: young babe from Brazil KILLED her self in front of cam – Watch video here”
“Wanna see more pics and video?? :)”

There are various links that are coming up such as :-

http://www.geator.info/           ** Don’t try and open these links!! **
http://www.surehe.info/           ** Don’t try and open these links!! **
http://www.chartza.info/          ** Don’t try and open these links!! **
http://www.soarina.co.cc/        ** Don’t try and open these links!! **
http://www.shaylum.co.cc/       ** Don’t try and open these links!! **
http://www.chelast.co.cc/         ** Don’t try and open these links!! **

What happens is that your friend will click on the link and an image will appear in their photo album with you and probably some other of their friends tagged in it. If you happen to click on it, the image will spread to your album and some of your friends will also be tagged in it and so on…. I also assume that once you click on the link, your Facebook account will be hacked and the nice people will have access to a lot of your private information, email addresses, date of birth, home town and so on.

Do yourself a favour and avoid clicking on these links. For a bit more advice, please take a look at Scotty’s blog entry on protecting your Facebook account which is located here:-

There are also a couple of other Facebook posts on my blog if you’d like to take a look.
