Do not mess with Facebook spam filters

Nowadays all websites are very strict to spammers. People spam more and more (I reported a new Facebook scam in this month). Facebook is exceptionally strict to uncommon behaviors. They are really concerned about users’ privacy. Therefore there are more possibilities that you can get banned or your account gets limited features, if any kind of uncommon behavior occurs by your end.

You have to go through spam filter if Facebook guesses you are trying to spam. You should be serious about this spam filters. If you keep entering wrong characters your facebook account gets banned or limited quickly.

The best thing to do when those words are not clear is to click on “Try different words” because sometimes  those captures are not readable. Remember Facebook is fully systematic whereas there is no human involvement in their procedures. Once your account gets banned, it’s impossible to get your account back.

Be ware from this. This is a scam and spreading very fast. If you remember “Osama killing video” this scam is similar to it. Do not click on “Enable Dislike button”. After you complete its steps you will send this same scam post on each friend’s wall. That’s how it grows.

Defiantly scammers have information’s about people who are going through this. Therefore you don’t click on “Enable Dislike button”

Get a notification if anyone logged in to your facebook account from somewhere

Facebook team work very hard to develop the Facebook everyday. Especially they are very particular about users’ privacy and security. Few days ago they introduced Social Authentication instead of using usual CAPCHA’s. Now they have developed another great feature to protect your facebook account.

This shows you from where you have logged in to Facebook recently. This is actually a tracking system. You can always get a notification to your email or to your mobile (as a text message) whenever a computer or a mobile device is logged in to your Facebook account. If you track down any suspicious activity you can immediately disconnect the suspicious activity by clicking on End activity and then you can go for a password change.

Facebook is going to say BYE for CAPTCHAs

Websites use CAPTCHAs to identity whether user is a human or a machine because hackers crashes websites and steal your information. Therefore CAPTCHAs are awesome solution for websites. But Facebook is going to give you an advanced and creative security solution instead of CAPTCHAs. Its called Social Authentication. This is still under experimentation. Facebook is going to test Social Authentication and collect user’s feedback soon.

What is Social Authentication ?

Someone can hack your password but they do not know who your friends are. Therefore Facebook is going to show you some friend’s pictures and ask you to name the person in those photos from 6 names.
