It doesn’t appear from my inbox that facebook has figured out a way to control the recent spam campaign being spread throughout the site. Apparently if you click on the link that is sent to you in the message, it will automatically send out spam links to all of the friends on your list. This is obviously a serious issue facebook has encountered, and members are getting unwanted messages from their friends who have been infected with this worm on a daily basis. Should you click on one of these emails you will notice that it might even have your friends name and profile photo on the spam site. It is hard to notice they are fake.
Don’t trust what you receive on these type of social networking sites. If someone, including friends send you links on that looks odd, or you weren’t expecting, you should question them if they meant to send it to you prior to opening the link and infecting your computer. In defense of facebook, they have 100 million members, and compared to other sites like myspace, they have done an incredible job of stopping the spam that probably tries to get through daily. Most people have switched to facebook to avoid all the spam and junk they received on other sites. Just get it fixed facebook, before you become myspace.
