Don’t Click On ‘My Total Facebook Views’

WARNING: Don’t Click On ‘My Total Facebook Views’

Posted by Jackie Cohen on January 20th, 2011 12:31 PM
The latest scam spreading across the social network promises to show you how many people have looked at your profile, but only leads to the typical survey scam.

Posts touting this scam are going up very quickly right now, and the application doing the posting goes by several different names, each with its own page on Facebook; multiple sources obviously complicates efforts to stop the scheme, while also accelerating the spread of the campaign.

The number of views listed in these postings appear inflated, stoking the vanity of the individual who clicked through to the application. Don’t succumb to this temptation, as the survey is just another big waste of time that, if you complete it, earns a commission for the spammer and gives you nothing in return. Plus, the whole exercise exposes your profile to malware and shares your personal information with an entity that will send you more spam in the near future.

Have you seen any postings related to this scam on Facebook?

Pink blood in a test tube (right) from a 40-day-old premature female baby was compared to a tube of normal blood in Hubei Children's Hospital, August 5, 2010. The baby was tested at 7-days-old and said to be in healthy condition at a local hospital. But 20 days after the baby was born, somatic symptoms appeared, including increasing blood fats and hemoglobin. After being transferred to Hubei, she was diagnosed with hyperlipidemia with symptoms of hepatosplenomegaly, a pulmonary infection, anemia and retinopathy. [Photo/Asianewsphoto]

Noah and his Ark

“The massive central door in the side of Noah’s Ark was opened, the first crowd of curious townsfolk to behold the wonder. Of course, it’s only a replica of the biblical Ark, built by Dutch Creationist Johan Huibers as a testament to his faith in the literal truth of the Bible.
The ark is 150 cubits long, 30 cubits high and 20 cubits wide. That’s two-thirds the length of a football field and as high as a three-story house. Life-size models of giraffes, elephants, lions, crocodiles, zebras, bison and other animals greet visitors as they arrive in the main hold. A contractor by trade, Huibers built the ark of cedar and pine. Biblical Scholars debate exactly what the wood used by Noah would have been.

Huibers did the work mostly with his own hands, using modern tools and with occasional help from his son Roy. Construction began in May 2005. On the uncovered top deck not quite ready in time for the opening will come a petting zoo, with baby lambs and chickens, and goats, and one camel.Visitors on the first day were stunned. ‘It’s past comprehension’, said Mary Louise Starosciak, who happened to be bicycling by with her husband while on vacation when they saw the ark looming over the local landscape. ‘I knew the story of Noah, but I had no idea the boat would have been so big.’ There is enough space near the keel for a 50-seat film theatre where kids can watch a video that tells the story of Noah and his ark.

Huibers, a Christian man, said he hopes the project will renew interest in Christianity in the Netherlands, where church going has fallen dramatically in the past 50 years. Now that I am old and Gray, give me the time to tell this new generation (and their children too) about all your mighty miracles. Psalm 71:18.”
