Spam on Facebook
I see this all the time. Someone’s account gets phished, and immediately I see spam on my news feed. I report these every time I see them, but since I found yet another one, I figured I’d share it:
- Post appears as a friend tagged in “Life Event” an acquaintance (non-friend with a few mutuals).
- Hacked account tags varying, but small amount of people to a post.
As to not raise suspicion, the amount changes per post. Since I am probably friends with more than one of those individuals tagged, the post is deemed relevant.
- Spam link repeated 3 times (but not always), but not linked.
By removing the hyperlink, my guess is that it doesn’t get automatically flagged as easily.
