Why facebook sux
Well facebook sux in many ways. I have been a member of facebook for about 2 years and in that time I have noticed there is allot of crap going on, not the users (real people) but all of the apps, games and groups of which about 80% are spam or some sort of malware, spyware, Trojan or virus. I personally do not play games, use any apps or join any groups just for that reason. BUT! allot of people on my Friends list do, and when they do they have to give permission to that program to access their friends list at which time in most cases the program starts spamming all their friends. I have had this happen allot and sometimes to the point that I have to (unfriend) some people. Facebook really needs to crack down on this crap! but they won't because it is money in their pockets but facebook needs to realize that this sort of thing will drive people away from facebook if it keeps going on. (it seems to be getting worse). Just recently my wife who is not the safest facebook user (although I try to tell her what to do and not to do on facebook) Joined a group about facebook charging users and we got a nasty virus in our computer called (Antivirus soft) and it was hell to get rid of. Then all she did was click the like button on a post from a friend which said I LOVE YOU and it started spamming her friend's walls with about 100 I LOVE YOU posts under her profile. I have seen quite a few people get this using different phrases (this is the newest one I have encountered) then there was the (koobface) virus that was spread through fake video links sent by a friend. and there are many more! People need to realize what these things do when they sign up for them. If you have any experiences or know of any spam, malware, spyware, trojans or viruses please share them with us. We will have to work together to protect each other from this crap (until facebook steps up and puts a stop to it) to make our facebook experience as enjoyable as possible.
