Image Tag Spam In Facebook

If you use Facebook frequently then you must have seen someone you don’t know becoming your friend and tagging you in every image he uploaded. This is the new type of spam that has been seen on Facebook. Complex systems like Facebook are very easy to be compromised as the company tries to make the system easy to use and flexible and this is what the hackers, crackers and spammers exploit.

Until now I haven’t been able to find a workaround or a fix for this spam but in the last few days I have removed who was mass-tagging everybody in our group of friends. This is the only solution I have been able to figure out. If anyone has got a better solution, please share with us here in comments. You may also be interested in the following articles:
