    Exclamation Facebook "stalker apps", DONT DO IT!

    Im sure a lot of users on here have facebook profiles so I just wanted to post this link:

    Those Facebook "stalker apps"? They don't work, so avoid them

    Please pass this on to your family members who aren't computer savvy. I would be wary of annnnny application on facebook.

    Also those "shocking videos" are not legit so stop it!

    Rogue Facebook App on the Loose [WARNING]

    Shared the 1st article on FB. Thanks for the heads up, at least for those I shared it with.

    was just this morning one of the guys I knew from highschool sent a request from an app to do just that, see who is "stalking" your profile.

    Pathetically these days, any sort of viewing or looking over the various pics & content people post on there, that have intentionally enabled so friends can see them, or even perfect strangers can...

    Consider it Stalking, when its really nothing even related to true stalking.

    Its like purposely leaving your Front Windows and Shades/Drapes open in your house all day long so that people walking by can hear and see EVERYTHING that is going on in the house...

    Then turn around and accuse them of stalking.

    Thats what I find some lame and yet amusing when it comes to this Stalking stuff on Facebook and other online Networking sites.

    Anyways, I've tried to get the word out from time to time about these various apps or whatever about Join this group or that group or install this app to see who's been viewing your page.

    Have told people it doesn't work, unless other people on your friend list join the group too, so your all on the same little "network", and in many cases the people that created the group or app, now have full access to view content on your pages, including phone numbers, Email address's, full name, etc, if its displayed on your account/page.

    But unfortunately there's always one or two, that don't get the message and fall for this almost every month on my list of people I know.

    had the Osama one pop up today, reported it as spam, and then forwarded/posted on an Article from Sophos/Naked Security about the Facebook scam to all my FB list so hopefully they'll wise up and not fall for those scams.

    specifically this article is what I shared: Osama Shoot down video scam spreads on Facebook | Naked Security

    What is amazing is you have to copy/paste the script into the address bar and people will do it.

    LOL, I know of at least 3 or 4 people on my friend list that have that friend buzz one.

    I think my Sister in law may have that as well.

    Will have to post that one too.

    New scam out there:

    Look what this girl is wearing at the beach in front of thousands of people!" followed by a fraudulent link.
    Here is what the description says: "During the summer holidays, this girl took the opportunity to do something unheard of! I bet no one can do the same."

    I never get these types of Facebook scams. Maybe I need more than 14 friends.

    on a related note...

    thats alright, I've found a new use for Pinterest, I thought it was mainly an artsy crafts like site for women to share recipe's and craft stuff, and other female hobby type pics and what not...

    one friend, who I worked with for a couple years, older guy, went to art school, and what not, former rock band musician and artist... likes to look up the "Female Form" on Pinterest... apparently there are tons of stuff posted on there that you would never find on Facebook... Think Playboy vs Penthouse, the stuff on Pinterest is more the former style than latter.


    So when I first saw that I was like, Oh crap, here we go again..., then to my surprise, found out it wasn't some scam and this is actual stuff posted on that site...

    oddly most of the pictures are shared on Pinterest through Tumblr... so has me thinking I need to open a Tumblr account to post some of the funny pics I have that would get me in trouble with Photobucket.
