    There is a good warning there GekiDan, there are lots of scammers and hackers using FaceBook to get profile info on their victims. One thing they do is get you to answer a quiz, with questions such as what is your pet's name and what is your mother's maiden name, they do this to build a profile of you and to try and figure out your username and passwords.

    I agree. Those are actually security questions asked for password retrieval or any info related to your account. Not because a friend of yours posted something doesn't mean you have to click or like it too.

    Nice tip GekiDan
