If you use Facebook, you’ve probably – at some time or other – received spam messages.
You’ve probably wondered where these erroneous emails were coming from.
Luckily, Web Watch has found a list of THREE TIPS TO FOLLOW IN ORDER TO AVOID RECEIVING FACEBOOK SPAM:
- Avoid Applications. Yes, we’re talking about you, Farmville. We’re talking about anything that requests access to your profile in order to proceed. There’s no app out there — whether you receive it as a forward from a friend or not — that’s worth the aggravation you’ll have once it mines your profile for personal information.
- Don’t friend strangers. Really? Really. Like Web Watch needs to tell you why this is a bad idea.
- Regularly review your Facebook privacy settings. Facebook makes updates to their site quite often, and when that happens, you may find yourself suddenly offering personal information out to friends or strangers that you didn’t expect to be made public. Lock your profile down to a comfortable level.
