    Well as some of you may know that facebook has recently been having some problems with the status feeds ect.. A rumor has been going round that its actually caused by the application which is a new craze called "fancheck".

    When you google "fancheck virus" you would find MANY malware and fake virus scan sites in the top 10. I was just wondering if any of you are monetizing this with maybe PPI or something. Maybe someone is just infecting people and building a ghost army.

    Facebook hasn't released anything official about this "fancheck" thing but from what I can see facebook is getting more dangerous by the day.

    The app itself doesnt seem to be a virus, but whoever created all the rumours about it being one seems to have done a pretty good job.
