Scams, Spam, & Rogue Apps W/ Block List!


~ The Bad Applications ~

There are many "rogue applications" that take advantage of users of a legitimate app in several ways. They can do this by creating a mirror of the original app to make you believe that it is one you were already authenticated for or they play on bonuses you can receive in the game or general too good to be true type offers (1,000 Free RP's). 

These apps can leak your personal information to a host of illegal networks, or even worse, take over your account and start spamming people with the same BS you just authenticated and it just spreads and spreads. 

Now some of these apps can even get your information even if you personally haven't allowed them, some of them can gain access just because your friends have been unfortunate enough to allow them access to all of their info and to collect information on their own friends. So to prevent this from happening you have to block them first. This way not only does it protect you, but it prevents them from spamming you as well, so it's a win-win.

It only takes a few minutes to click the links and block the apps and its well worth it for the peace of mind.

~ The Photo Spam ~

I'm sure many of you have gotten stupid photo tags in the past, but nowadays there are more and more people using the photo tagging system as a form of spam. And there is no way to report it. Or stop it. There are a few steps to take so it doesn't show up as often, but until Facebook makes a change we're still going to have to deal with it (Annoyingly)

1st) If you get a photo tag don't just remove the tag, first report the photo as spam, then go to the taggers profile / facebook fan page and block/report them so it doesn't happen again in the future. One of the options when reporting them is spam. Then go ahead and remove your tag from the photo so it doesn't show up on your profile.

2nd) Now as I said there is way to PREVENT but there is a way to lower your exposure to the photo tagging system. 

So go to your "Privacy Settings" , "Apps, Games and Websites". Edit settings for "Info accessible through your friends" and uncheck "photos and videos I'm tagged in."

Then hit save and click go back to Privacy and customize your settings. Scroll down to the "things others share section" and edit the settings for "Suggest photos of me to friends." You will get a popup, click disable.

As I said before: doing that will greatly reduce the amount of photo spam you get but it won't eliminate it as it can still be manually entered, but since it will stop suggesting your name it will help. So something else is needed, and unfortunately that involves facebook changing their settings which can take some convincing by the Facebook users. So do your part and join the cause to Let Us Disable Photo Tagging All Together.

Once you join help spread the word and get the cause out there! It of course asks you to invite friends. But follow the instructions on how to contact Facebook and let them know that there is a problem. If nobody gets through to them nothing will be done. So click here to contact Facebook and tell them that you want the option to disable photo tagging to put an end to photo spam! We can do it, it just takes a lot of the same suggestion for it to happen!

  1. This list is much more comprehensive and the links were all valid, as opposed to some that I've seen in the past few days. Thanks Devlin
