Facebook Isn't Closing All Accounts Today, It's Just a Scam

facebook scam
There's a new scam floating around Facebook and, like so many before it, it's spreading via a series of absurd wall posts. The latest spammy posts to hit the social network read: "Facebook will close down all accounts today. The announcement was made by Mark Zuckerberg -- Facebook owner." The message also invites users to click on a link, in order to keep their accounts active. Of course, Facebook isn't shutting down, and clicking the link will only take you to a rogue app, which, if activated, will post the same message to your wall. For more information, check out Sophos' Naked Security blog.
