You may not like someone on Facebook. You may practically despise someone on Facebook. Just don’t fall for a new scam that claims to offer you a chance to vent by giving someone a very public thumbs-down.
If you see a message offering to enable a “Dislike” button, beware: security firm Sophos claims the “fast-spreading scam has caused problems for social networking users this weekend.”

The message reads:
Facebook now has a dislike button! Click ‘Enable Dislike Button’ to turn on the new feature!
“The potential for malice should be obvious,” adds Sophos.
The potential for annoyance, too. What a mess for Facebook, or should I say another mess for Facebook. The site’s awash in dubious pseudo-communiqués. I’m scrubbing link-spam off personal pages daily. It’s to the point I’d almost take one of these scammers up if they offered an app to simply blanket “Dislike Facebook.”
