Facebook Private Message Spam

In the last 48 hours, I have received over 50 spam private messages via facebook. All from different accounts, all encouraging me to play real money poker on a bingo website.

But I see it as a sign of things to come and FB really need to implement a gmail quality spam filter.

I've had a few "strange looking" FB messages as well. If it ain't kosher I don't click... but given FB's size and dominance on the web, it won't be long before the bad boys descend... That said, FB does seem to be quickly reactive (if not completely pro-active) in dealing with these things.

I found the "message" setting on my profile, I've updated it so that only friends can send me messages, it was set to "Everyone"

<cough> it already happened a while ago; people in here just don't talk openly about it:)

you need to make your account private, and make it view by your friends only to avoid spams.
