    Recently I have been seeing posts from people to other peoples wall with a few words that rarely make sense. Then a comment saying the link. Then a link.

    Im guessing this is some bullshit. Anyone know what it is all about?

    That sounds like regular ol' Facebook users to me; they always post short, choppy, nonsensical rubbish and link back to silly quiz & slideshow URLs.

    No. This is different it's all over the place and in the same format every time. Some straight up spamming. If people link they link in the post. This has a post. Then a link in the comment underneath. Same every time.

    Im thinking it's some spam shit. Or one of these stupid viral shit that if you click it it gives you instructions to post it on.

    Curious enough to ask but not to click lol.

    Might just be to hide that it is spam. If every post had a link it would look suspicious, but by posting without the link first, it might look like a genuine message to the FB spam filters.
    I don't know for sure as I avoid FB as much as possible.

    Since I've been spamming in that sandbox the past few weeks I have had to make 4 different runs to the IQ store to replenish what little gray matter I had.
