Millions of people have a FaceBook account. The more people on any website make it more attractive to hackers; this means it is more likely to have malware and viruses hidden on it. Twitter and other social media websites are as susceptible as FaceBook!
Hackers are using a different form of phishing now called ‘spear-phishing.’ Hackers set up a link specifically targeted towards you. They like to use the following:
1: A free trip or a contest, all you have to do is fill out a form with all of your information.
2: They might post a link that is similar to something you previously posted.
3: Another trick they like is to fake friends. They take pictures off of a friends’ page, put them on theirs and pretend to be your friend.
