    Always be wary on what you click on Facebook.

    I never click on unfamiliar stuff on any website, especially Facebook. Facebook is filled with crap.

    If anybody needs an invite there are a ton of people willing to invite you. Just let me know if you want one and I'll give you some names. It's way better than trusting a link on Facebook.

    Yes. All I need is the email you want the invitation to be sent to. This will be the email used for Google Plus.

    There are various rogue websites and apps that use the interfaces of popular websites and networks such as Facebook to victimize web surfers. Because these spams are increasing in frequency, it is more important than ever to be wary of all personal information requests online. You should always be on guard for potential privacy breaches.

    These guys have really got some good link baiting skills that could definitely make anyone seeing it curious about their links.
    This includes a so called "enticing" thumbnails. If you see one on your friend's profile, ignore it and it will definitely be a spam.
