FarmVille, game-related Facebook scams are second-most popular

When you consider the number of Facebook gamers--some say it's over 250 million--that's quite a lot of scamming. BitDefender has created an animated infographic to display in plain detail the most common social scams and the threat they pose to your security. The most popular scams involve fake "stalker apps," or fake applications that supposedly allow users to track in-depth data regarding who visits your page, which make up 34.7 percent of the whole. It's not surprising to see that scams claiming to offer free FarmVille items or those in other games are the second most popular, filling 16.2 percent of the total.
