If you find a tempting video link or an explicit picture posted by your very close friend,

  • Hold back for a moment and take time to check the link to which the video or picture is pointing, it could be a spam wall post from hackers.
  • If its not a usual video sharing site like YouTube, metacafe, vimeo¬† or Facebook then don’t click it.
  • Also never click if the post is pointing to a shortened URL.
  • If you click on those links when you are logged in the Facebook, with same web browser, then the spammer can post same message to your Facebook friends walls also.

If you really feel that you need to follow the link shared then,

  • Right click on the shared video or picture to get the target URL to which its linked.
  • and open a new browser other than the browser with which you logged into Facebook. And, paste the link in the address bar and visit the webpage.
