Facebook recently launched a new security wall to block scammers, but many are worried these measures won't stop spam from spreading and that determined con artists will simply find new ways to get at unsuspecting users.
We've all seen suspicious posts on Facebook--a friend's curiously impersonal message that's riddled with odd typos, the irresistible app offering a chance to see who has viewed your profile, and more. These scams are sometimes obvious and easy to avoid, other times nefarious and simple to fall for. Despite Facebook's security features, safe social networking rests in the user's own hands.
We've put together a list of some of the most common Facebook scams and what happens if you fall for them. Take a look through the slideshow (below) and vote for the worst scam. Then, view our slideshow of what to do if your Facebook account is hacked.
