Facebook memes could pose security hazards


Some security experts are warning Facebook users about memes on favorite activities, like asking users to identify a fake concert among others they have attended, as in this New York Times story here.
 
It’s possible for some criminals to guess security questions for other accounts from these, or to use social engineering to target users for future scams, according to some security experts.

I’ve never played on such a meme.

But one time I was greeted with a survey when logging on to Facebook, only to find later I had indeed misspelled the domain name.  Fortunately for me, nothing came of it.
