For you Facebook users---Beware

There's a pretty nasty spam featuring free Southwest Airline tickets.

Ignore it...because if you click on it it will capture your friends list and send it out to them.

1. I pretty much ignore most things on facebook, ha ha.

I also use a false name and information - like age birth date and town and fictional high school, etc. My friends expect and accept my eccentricities. Heck, I even put fake names as the owner/users of my computer. I am sure there are always more things to do like never buy anything on line. I do buy things from stores like Itunes cards and put in a false name for that.....
off to wallow in nuerosis

2. Never click on any ad

That's my rule of thumb. On any site I'm visiting, not just Facebook (where I never even notice ads because I've trained my eye not to go there).

On the rare occasion I do see an ad for something that interests me, I never click on the ad link. I'll open a new window and just go to the airline or store's site itself.
