Beware of fake Facebook ‘dislike’ button


Beware of the fake Facebook ‘dislike’ button.

Facebook Security advise you not to click on suspicious links on Facebook.

“We’re working hard to block and remove malicious applications that claim to provide dislike functionality and inadvertently update people’s statuses,”

“It’s important to keep in mind that there is no official dislike button. Also, don’t click on strange links, even if they are from friends, and notify the person and report the link if you see something suspicious.”

Stay Safe on Facebook

click on the “account” button at the top right of the Facebook home screen. Navigate to the option that says “application settings,” and disable the fake “dislike” application.

If the app has posted to your Facebook wall, go to your profile page and delete those posts to stop the scam from spreading further. mashable also recommends checking your “interests” and “likes” settings from the “edit my profile” menu, to be sure that the app hasn’t lodged itself there as well.

Or Facebook may do all of that for you.
