Wow…. Someone please warn me if you see crazy stuff happening on my Facebook page…

“In a survey of 2,700 users between the ages of 18 and 65, BitDefender found that only about 43 percent of the responders warned their friends if they noticed suspicious posts and activity on their friends’ newsfeeds. Most of the participants clearly recognized the threats, as 87 percent said they had noticed when a suspicious application went “wild” on their friends’ news feeds, such as the number of people who have viewed the profile, wrote Sabina Dactu, e-threats analysis and communications specialist at BitDefender, on the MalwareCity blog.”
