Facebook spam warning

Facebook spam warning

By Daniel Gutierrez. CREATED Nov 20, 2012

Clicking 'like' may be causing you to help spread the latest spam on Facebook. The Better Business Bureau is warning of an increase in this problem.

You see an attention-grabbing photo on your Facebook newsfeed, that includes a caption that promises something will happen in the photo if you "like" it or leave a comment. But the BBB says be careful not to share, like or comment on these images. It turns out the photo is just spam, and it's going viral.
