    So now not only is it just posting it on your wall, it's making it look like a legit wall post to a friend. Does anyone have any more information?

    It's strange because it links to an application, and the application only has the one person on it - my friend. The application links to -

    It is a hell of a good script.

    Its not a virus, you obviously havent heard of facebook tokens. They basically allowed the facebook application to be able to post on their wall.

    Yeah I just called it a virus because I don't know exactly what it's called.

    I've seen these applications before, but not to this extent, and I haven't seen it posting on other peoples walls before.

    Yea this if a user installs a app it can repost whatever you want to 25 of their friends so this causes the app to go viral extremely fast.

    You can also post on fanpages that user owns.

    they usually make you fill out a survey form, which gets the person who set it up money, loads of these scams about now.

    I must get about 8 of these on my wall everyday, trying to make it look like your friend is shoiwing you something, alot are showing up as contests now, I'll see if i can find an example.

    The latest one i've had is the "now you can finally found out who has blocked you FOR REAL" sh*t.
