Okay people, previously I touched on Facebook Scams and how your mental capacity must be diminished to believe the bullshit those scams are putting out. Now I want to talk about Facebook spam and viruses. This is a fucking trip and a half…
There are people out in the world that are too smart for their own good. Seriously. Facebook spam and viruses have been around probably as long as the site itself. Here’s what these smart fuckers do:
- Create a Facebook group with an amazingly catchy or crazy title (for example, TEEN GIRL KILLS HERSELF OVER WHAT HER DAD POSTED ON HER WALL or some stupid shit like that)
- Require people to click on an ad which opens up COMPLETE access to your profile to this application, and then subjects you to ads in order to see the answer.
Are you fucking kidding me? Really people?
FACEBOOK REQUIRES THAT APPLICATIONS ASK YOU FOR YOUR FRICKEN PERMISSION TO DO SHIT!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! DON’T CLICK “ALLOW”, OBVIOUSLY!
But no. People are mentally challenged and still click that Allow button and BOOM. All your friends get flooded with invites and comments, your wall gets spammed with posts, and messages get sent to all your friends to try to sucker them into doing the same thing.
And ya know what? They will probably do the same thing. Because they’re challenged. Just like you.
Fucking aye, people. It’s 2010. The internet has been around for 2 decades, give or take, and you still make dumb mistakes like that? Wowski…
PS – That image above is actually for an application called RockMelt which integrates Facebook, Twitter and other RSS feeds directly into the browser. It’s actually pretty neat, but it asks for access to everything so it’s a perfect example.
