The Three Worst Facebook Spams!

facebookspam.jpg








Why do these same old annoying, fake, potentially viral messages keep popping up on my page?

3) "Hey Michael, I can't believe it, I actually got a free ipad to test out and keep. They are only giving away a limited supply, so I'm showing you this. I absolutely LOVE the iPad :)" blah blah..  

Sorry, I'm busy buying the Brooklyn Bridge.

2) "Check out this video of a baby. It's so cute!"  Hey, everyone loves a cute baby. But this ain't it!

And the most irritating of all...

1) "Look at you in this video. What are you doing? LOL".

This is the kind of link all narcissists want to open, even after it turns out to be bogus the first time. And the second time. But by now, it's become the devil -- a hideous nuisance that still makes absolutely no sense to me.

And I always blame the person who "sent" it even though they had nothing to do with it!

Death to Facebook spams!

What about the Schwettbutt ones asking you to befriend them? That's spam right?

I once received a Facebook spam that allegedly came from you, Michael. But having written for the Voice years ago, I quickly realized that there was no way you had the type of cash to hand out iPods.

Facebook pretty much sucks in my opinion. There were so many needy people and boring spam that you have to click several times to delete. Then if you accidentally set your privacy wrong you start hearing from all the people you'd spent years getting off your grid. No. It's just a huge scam to sell everyone's marketing information and the fact that Mark Zuckerberg has his own facebook stalker that he's terrified of really says it all.

I'm a twitter addict though.

Never mind spams, videos, your implied physical contortions, culminating in self gratification, why is it that when I expand Musto's profile, the name DIANA appears?

I think you can go to the right of the link and click the "x"..and then have the option never to be bothered by the app again. Sometimes it works..at least I haven't seen those in a while.
