Switch to Pink Facebook Hoax Spreading Fast

Message appearing on Facebook claiming to change your Facebook Pink, is a survey scam

There are ways to switch to a Pink Facebook using Chrome which you can Google for but there is a link spreading on Facebook at the moment, which is a hoax.

Title – Switch to Pink Facebook (Limited Time)

The link here is the same as all survey scams – when you click it, it spams all of your friends facebook walls telling them of the good news, that you have a pink facebook, which you don’t realise until its too late.

You are asked to first fill in a survey for verification but of course, nothing happens, they now have lots of information from you and the scammers have been paid for their efforts in scamming you.

If you see this on your wall delete it, and tell the person to inform followers that it is a scam, and follow these instructions to remove a facebook scam.

Always check out suspicious links before clicking it, IF IN DOUBT DON’T CLICK !

Update : There are now other scams – asking you click the link to get Black Facebook – Blue Facebook, and probably rainbow Facebook – as I said these are fake. There are ways to change the background and ways to get colours in chrome but I’d search on Google for those if I were you.

Hope this helps



Facebook to start charging – spam spreading again.

No way!

Since the beginning of this year there have been various rumours about Facebook charging as from August 2011. There have been groups started up and posts shared.

This week we are seeing another type of  hoax viral message circulating Facebook that reads…

This looks like the old chain mails you used to or maybe do still get reporting that Hotmail are going to start charging unless you forward the email, and of course if you forward, you won’t get charged.  Yeah right.  Same thing here, its saying that if you share this message your icon will turn blue and Facebook will be free for you. This just wouldn’t happen.

There has been no reports that Facebook are going to charge, and in the Telegraph today it says that Facebook has denied claims that it has plans to charge. Besides after the launch of Google+ this would be a very silly time to do it.

Don’t fall for it, and don’t copy it and paste it as your status.

Hope this helps
