Here’s why you shouldn’t ‘like’ that Facebook post

Liking posts on Facebookhas become a reflex for many people, who may see it as a quick, simple and non-committal way of registering that they’ve seen a post from a friend or page, but Facebook users who click ‘like’ on posts and pages may be helping scammers to hoodwink people online.

Seemingly harmless, liking posts on Facebook can actually be extremely dangerous and can enable online scammers to steal people’s information, spread viruses or give out false information by ‘like-farming’ on Facebook.

Scammers will post a story on Facebook that contains nothing malicious, but is likely to be popular and attract likes and shares from people online.
