copy/paste shenanigans on facebook – yet another hoax

It's amazing how people will turn into copy/paste monkeys at the drop of a hat.

Below is a new one going around. Everybody is feverishly repeating the hoax, and the comments are rolling with, "got it done! whew! thank god. thanks for the tip. all secured thanks."

RULE #1: don't take configuration suggestions from other users. SHEESH! Visualize using a search engine to verify things.

The hoax:

“With the new ‘FB timeline’ on its way this week for EVERYONE…please do both of us a favor: Hover over my name above. In a few seconds you’ll see a box that says “Subscribed.” Hover over that, then go to “Comments and Likes” and “Games” and un-click it. That will stop my posts and yours to me from showing up on the side bar(ticker) for everyone to see, but MOST IMPORTANTLY it LIMITS HACKERS from invading our profiles. If you re-post this I will do the same for you. You’ll know I’ve acknowledged you because if you tell me that you’ve done it I’ll ‘like’ it. Thanks”
