July 16 we blogged about Facebook spam that offers some amazing photo or video but instead lures you into some goofy “survey” that is aimed at collecting your cell phone number. Bottom line is a $9.99 charge on you phone bill for something you didn’t want. (Sunbelt blog piece: “OMG OMG don’t fall for Facebook spam” here.)

And, of course, every time someone falls for one of these and “likes” it, he posts it to Facebook, so the spam spreads:

OMG_2

Simple rule for Facebook: if your friend’s wall posting contains “OMG” and a URL, avoid it. If it wants you to “like” it, REALLY avoid it.

“OMG” Facebook spam has become a new genre.
