Another Year Sure to be Fraught, Fakes, Frauds, and Foolery on Facebook

Welcome to the New Year, and another year sure to be fraught with fakes, frauds, and foolery on Facebook.

To start off the year we have a “[SHOCKING VIDEO] Shark eats the swimming man in an Ocean !!”
But, surprise surprise its not real. If you click on it, you will be taken to a fake Facebook page, and prompted to share the video, and take a survey. In the background you are giving up personal information, making the scammers some affiliate link cash, and involving your entire friends list.

So if this makes it to your Timeline, do not click or share the link with any friends. I also recommend you delete it from your timeline.

The image shows a screenshot of what you may see in your timeline.
