Just a short message to Facebook lightweights...

This isn't exactly a meaningful post to most of you, but it just irks me lately how Facebook users are so easily used lately on Facebook by those god damn javascripts. So, this is basically a bit of a rant post.

First of all, people, do NOT EVER go to a website and copy/paste something into your address bar that has "javascript:" at the start. Basically, this is saying to the browser "execute this javascript right here in this page." And in the case of Facebook, the executed script is most likely one of those things that will post on your friends' walls, chat up your friends advertising crap, and it may even steal your account information.

One of the recent outbursts of this kind of situation occured last night when I saw tons of my friends fall for the trick after visiting a webpage that claimed that if you "added this code to your address bar and hit enter, the dislike button on Facebook would be activated." That is bull sh*t.

If Facebook MADE AN OFFICIAL DISLIKE BUTTON, why the hell would they have you go to an external, non-affiliated website and have you paste an anonymous script into your browser? How dumb can you get? I mean come on.

Welp, sorry for that rant... I just had to say it.
