I'm intruiged that a criminal might use FB. Surely, it's better to remain off-the-grid. Not that i'm an expert, of course, but it seems so obvious.
You would be amazed ( and perhaps horrified ) at the number of software cracker groups, hacker groups and cyber locker and warez sites that have fan pages on facebook..and many thousands and tens of thousands ( and in some cases hundreds of thousands ) of likes..
Why is this being reported like Facebook did something good? If I read it right: Facebook users were ripped off for $850M, ongoing for 2 years and Facebook couldn't stop it (or were unaware it was happening).
Facebook's security team assisted the FBI after "Yahos" targeted its users from 2010 to October 2012, the U.S. federal agency said in a statement on its website.
