Just a couple of days after the Facebook surprise message scam was unleashed another new Facebook scam is currently underway where users are posting messages on their profile saying "My total facebook views are: xxx. Find your total profile views link".
The new Facebook scam is similar to another one which we had unearthed earlier where people were enticed to click on a link to know "who checked your Facebook profile". Both these scams are similar in nature as to providing users with data that Facebook does not provide them with.
However, you are better off staying away from clicking on the links accompanied with this message. All Facebook is reporting that the number accompanied with the update are inflated and that the survey users are forced to take is basically a waste of time. However, for the developer of the said app, it could mean a lot of money. Remember how Zynga asks users to complete surveys to getting additional virtual money for their games?
So if your friend has updated their profile saying that their profile has been viewed so many times, kindly tell them about the scam and ask them to delete the update from their profile, lest someone else clicks on it.
