Just when we’re all getting over the shock of Facebook’s closing down for maintenance in the three days between the end of February and the beginning of March (yes, you did read that right: see the hoax post Chainmail for the Calendar-Deprived), there’s more bad news for FB addicts.
Hang on, didn’t it already close down its free accounts last month? Errr, no….
But it’s going to close down its accounts today, right, except for those users who confirm that their accounts are still active? (So Facebook can’t tell which of its customers’ accounts are active? Hmmm…) Errr, no. That’s a viral survey scam. Graham Cluley tells you all about it here.
Unbelievable. Well, you’d think so, wouldn’t you?
