I was just checking out my new notifications (the notifications box in the lower right hand corner), and one of the notifications was that a friend of mine on Facebook had left a comment on one of my photos. When I click on the notification, I was taken to a page that wanted me to install a “Facebook Photo Comment App”.
THIS IS SPAM – DON’T INSTALL
You are able to view comments that people leave on your photos in Facebook as a normal Facebook protocol – there are apps that need to be installed.
The Photo Comment App on Facebook, if you do actually install it (which I accidentally did) – will give you a really freaky looking clown image, and then try to entice you to continue with the installation – and the app also makes reference to porn, and otherwise adult oriented pictures.
An app of this nature is bad news for your Facebook profile and your computer. It would more than likely install corrupt cookies on your computer, and who knows what type of content would be sent out to tall of your friends on Facebook.
So do not install the Photo Comment App on Facebook – you can view the comments people make on your photos without any apps needing to be installed.
