Facebook – Avoid the 15 Second video challenge http://blog.eset.com/2011/11/13/facebook-video-scam-15-seconds-dont-watch-it-at-all

QUOTE: One of my Facebook friends drew my attention today to a fast-spreading link. I’m pleased to say that he knew better than to look at it, but I figured it was worth seeing what it was all about. The link comes with this message, according to Facecrooks.com (a good place to check for stuff like this):

98 Percent Of People Cant Watch This Video For More Than 15 Seconds

CLICK LINK TO WATCH VIDEO & SEE HOW LONG YOU CAN LAST!!

Needless to say, clicking the link is not a good idea. It’s a survey scam: if you do follow the link, it takes you to a fake Facebook page that looks as if it contains a video, but if you click the “play” button, it loads a “Share” box so that you can irritate all your friends by spamming them with the same message
