>Help Ive been contacted by someone claiming to be Facebook Security

>Subscribe to The BULLDOG Estate by Email

I’ve been getting reports in that someone from Facebook Security has been contacting users to get them to send login information to them, or be blocked, removed, banned etc…

They already have this information, nor do they actually need it to manage accounts.
The real Facebook Security has Administrative privileges that supersede anyones accounts.
This also goes for any site you log into. There is a structured order to these things.
As with any site, my own as well as your PC work in much the same way.
If anything goes wrong, or someone forgets a password. The Administrator can “Take Over” any other account to fix problems or what not.

So Unless you are at the Official Login Page (This is the ONLY place You should EVER be asked for login credentials), do NOT ever give this information out freely in ANY way shape or form claiming to be an administrator.

If anyone ever contacts you in this manner… Report, and Block the person immediately.
This is an age old tactic called phishing using Social Engineering as a way to get personal information.

Login credentials are for you, and you only!

Stay safe everybody,

>The Photo Tagging Nightmare! – by Mike Malm

>Subscribe to The BULLDOG Estate by Email

There has been a VAST number of photo tagging survey scams to surface as of late, and the list just keeps getting longer and longer!

Unfortunately there isn’t much you can do about it; aside from removing the post from your profile wall, and un-tagging yourself from the picture that is. Assuming you didn’t actually click the link in the picture, you should be okay.

If by chance you did click the link, and have given permission to the rogue app. You are most likely to be the one of the many that have allowed the app to post images, and tag your friends in YOUR name! There is a Video on Sophos’s website on how to clean up the aftermath of being such a victim…

What you CAN do though is prevent others from seeing these photos in their news feeds if YOU do get tagged by one, so it doesn’t spread any further! We’ll call it “Proliferation Prevention”, because much like STD’s prevention is the best medicine; right? 😉
There is a negative effect to this though. If there are friends in your list who you would like to see tagged photos of you, you’ll be SOL! This will prevent EVERYONE from seeing ANY tagged photos of you! Although if you know about grouping friends into different categories such as “Friends”, “Family”, “Gamers” etc… You can set permissions to specific groups.
For people with very large friend lists, this helps A LOT for privacy reasons.
Top Right: Account > Edit Friends
I’ll save a tutorial for that at a later date, but for now I’ll show ya the basics. =]

  • First we’ll start off by going to your account privacy settings.

Top right: “Account” > “Privacy Settings”

  • Then you’ll want to set a customized setting.

Click “Customize settings”

  • You’ll see in the list under “Things others share”… A section for “Photos and videos you’re tagged in”.

Click “Edit Settings”

  • A new popup “Who can see photos and video I’m tagged in”.
From the drop down select “Custom edit”

  • a new popup “Make this visible to”
“These people” from the drop down select “Only Me”
Click the “Save Setting” button, and you’re done!

Let’s keep Facebook a clean, and SPAM Free environment!
These scammers and spammers are only in it to make money by praying on peoples natural curiosities, and desires. It’s an age old tactic of Social Engineering, and who’d a thunk that a social site would be perfect for this?
Remember; if it seems too good (sick) to be true, it usually is!

If you would like to stop seeing repeat offending apps from posting in your news feed…
Please check out my note on Facebook on “Known List of Apps to Block“. Share it with your friends, and spread the word. I try to keep it up to date as much as possible.
Help them to help you fight off this spamming garbage!

I would like to thank The BULLDOG Estate, and Sophos for their great contributions of helping fight the spam!

Safe Facebooking,

>With Facebook Allowing Apps to use your address and Phone Number : How to Hide it

> With Facebook Allowing Apps to use your address and Phone Number : How to Hide it

QuoteFacebook announced today they will be re-enabling a feature allowing application developers access to user mobile phone and address data.  Amid much public and governmental backlash, Facebook instituted a delay of the initiative just three days after its January release. A Facebook spokesperson wrote, “We are making changes to help ensure you only share this information when you intend to do so.” 
Privacy advocates were hopeful the feature would be abandoned altogether, but most people familiar with Facebook policies knew it was a matter of “when,” not “if,” it would be reinstated. 
Congressional leaders weighing in on the subject believe the pop-up permission box displayed upon installing a Facebook application is insufficient notification due to the sensitive nature of addresses and phone numbers. Policy makers also expressed concern about contact information of minors being available to application developers. Here is how to hide your information


Or simply Delete your Real Number and Add Facebooks corporate number
The PR Department number is CA UsA (650) 543-4811
