Facebook: 'Dislike' Option Install Scam [bbc.co.uk]
Facebook users are being targeted in a scam that offers them a chance to install a "dislike" button.

The scam tricks users into allowing a rogue application to access their profile page, which then posts spam messages.

It also attempts to lure people into completing an online survey, for which the scammers are paid money.
The dislike button scam prompts people to download an application with the message: "Download the official DISLIKE button now."
