Posted by pratyushkp
The application named “Who viewed your facebook profile” which was the hottest item passed around through the social media shocked most of them when it was discovered to be a scam. This applicationhas been officially announced by facebook to be from an outside developer and has clarified that the functionality does not belong to them. Further it has been stated that any application that claim to give facebook users this ability to track who is viewing your profile will be removed from Facebook for violating their policy.
There is also a warning issued to those users who have already fallen victim to this scam to delete such a fake application and immediately change their password. This is felt necessary because of the scam application’s nature of requiring too much personal information and recommending them to all the users contacts even before getting access to it.
This will be big lesson learnt for most of the facebook fans and a step towards being extra cautious social networker.
