The next time you get a notification from Facebook that says a friend has tagged you in a picture, be careful. It could be a trap!

Normally, Facebook’s email notifications tell you which friend has tagged you in a picture. In this particular case, you are prompted to view the photo in an attachment to the email. Don’t do it! It’s a ZIP file containing malware that allows hackers to gain your control over Windows-operated computers.

Get the whole story, including an image of the fake email, here. Forewarned is forearmed.

Be careful. It’s a jungle out there!

Hello, Monica here. Surprise! Facebook has changed your primary email to their Facebook domain account email.  It looks something like your.name@facebook.com. Yes, you weren’t notified of this either.

Why should you care? Well, the Plain Dealer, Janet Cho, came up with the why you should care. Basically, if you are used to getting your Facebook interactions through your Yahoo or Gmail account, it’s been switched to a Facebook domain account email that you’re not checking. Also, your Facebook domain account email is public.

The good news is that my friend, Sage Lewis, from SageRock Digital Marketing, has a blog posting to help you fix this latest Facebook email dilemma. He has a couple of solutions to get you back on your blissful way of communicating photos and what-not on Facebook again. Have a great day!

Simplex-IT’s June 2011 Lunchinar on “Social Media Strategy for Your Small-Medium Business” was a Standing Room Only success! Nearly 40 attendees enjoyed over an hour of stimulating conversation on how to best utilize the most revolutionary marketing tools ever – Social Media!

The event featured three business leaders and social media experts – Chris Brown, Deborah Chaddock Brown and Norma Rist – in a panel discussion chaired by Simplex-IT’s own Bob Coppedge, punctuated with frequent questions from the attendees. Which social media is the best – Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter? Not as much a How To as a session geared toward helping the various business owners gain insight on developing the best strategy for their particular marketing niche.
