Social: Scam on Facebook Promising Facebook Gifts

Source:  cnet.

Be careful.  Someone is running scams on Facebook promising iOS devices and headsets.

Of course, this is something Facebook ought to deal with but I find it unlikely.  It relies on "likes" and other personal details to sell ads.  I'm sure it'll the absolute minimum to placate the public and, like other Facebook privacy traps, it'll unfortunately blow over soon.

Frauds or hoaxes.  These things need to run their courses.  Sure, I like laws to deal with this but politicians can overreach and do more harm than not.

Anyway, just be careful.  So far, I've ran across nothing even remotely like this on Google+.
