Angela still talking…

A year ago I pointed out an article by Graham Cluley, then a stalwart of the Sophos Naked Security blog (and now blogging on his own independent site), about a hoax/semi-hoax at that time spreading via Facebook: Talking Angela Blues. Apparently the (in)famous talking cat app is still suspected by Facebook users of asking children too many personal questions if they access the app.

Paul Ducklin returns to the theme and while debunking the Talking Angela hoax, takes the opportunity to offer tips on how to avoid being a hoaxer’s accessory:¬†The “Talking Angela” chain letter: Three tips to help you avoid Facebook hoaxes.

Good to see Graham, a friend from way, way back, contributing the occasional article to ESET’s WeLiveSecurity blog (my own most usual outlet), by the way.
