For those of you who have a Facebook account, have you noticed a relatively recent surge in fake accounts which either comment on or "like" your posts? By "fake accounts" I'm talking about accounts with photos of very scantily/sexually dressed women who in all seriousness look like high price call girls. My most recent experience with this was one of these fake accounts liking a comment I made about the performance of Malcolm McDowell in "A Clockwork Orange" in the Stanley Kubrick group. I checked out the account which liked my post and I knew immediately that this is NOT a Stanley Kubrick film geek. biggrin

I wonder what the purpose is of those accounts? Some kind of info phising?

YouTube is rife with them. I must report 3-4 a day.

Now I know you are under 25 or you're just trolling. It's hard to tell which to be honest.

I've studied NFB's posts and have calculated that he is aged between 5 and 60.

I don't post enough on Facebook to have noticed that trend, but I do see friend recommendations from Facebook that are often very attractive, younger women with whom I have no mutual friends, and I always wonder why.

I checked a few to see why there might have been a recommendation and I don't even see anything of mutual interest, like cars or something, so I wonder how that Facebook algorithm works. Maybe they figure I am desperately lonely and by recommending a hot woman I will use their site more or something.

Bingo. Facebook management knows that they have been bleeding users for a while now to competitors so they have been desperate to retain them in any way possible.

Trend? I've seen that since the beginning. One of the reasons I've never really used it.

What's facebook?


Look for me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or Tic Toc...or anywhere you may frequent, besides SimHq, on the Global Scam Net. Aka, the internet.
I am not there, never have been or ever will be, but the fruitless search may be more gratifying then the "content" you might otherwise be exposed to.
