We keep posting about latest facebook Spam and Scams to ensure your safety while your surf your favorite social networking site. Here is a new spam which is spreading virally on Facebook and you will see a thumbnail of semi-nude video with the message “99% of people can’t watch this video more than 25 seconds!!!” “I dare you to watch more than 25 seconds from this video!”
Here is how this spam message will appear in your Facebook timeline on friends wall:
Once you click on the video you will be taken to this page which will ask you to confirm your age to be 18+ as video is adult in nature.
As soon as you will click on the Jaa twice, this video will be posted on your wall as shown in above image.
In last couple of days, I have spotted so many such spam videos which will ask you to verify your age by clicking the verification button and video will be posted on your wall. More over spammers, select some attracting thumbnail which will encourage others to click on it.
For bloggers you can learn from this spam that how important a thumbnail can be in order to increase CTR on any article. Anyways, for normal Facebook users, I would suggest unlike this video if you have accidently liked it and tell your friends to stay away from such Facebook videos link which ask you to verify your age by clicking on some thing.
Have you spotted any such adult video thumbnail on Facebook which works the same way? What have you done to let your friends know about such spam. Share this post on Facebook and increase the awareness about this new spam method spreading on Facebook.
