We Live Security has a blog post on how to spot a Facebook hoax.  Many of the tips can apply to other social media as well.

If the bad guys can collect your Facebook login credentials, they can share things to your friends in your name.  Depending on what they want, this can lead to using your computer / tablet / phone as part of a botnet or prying into your financial details, photos or whatever they find interesting.

If your student, faculty or staff group would like a 40 minute live presentation on how to recognize scams, complete with information on picking up the pieces after a compromise and Q&A, send me an email to set it up!
