Facebook's Related Links: A Security Feature?

You won't expect someone who gives cybersecurity awareness talks regularly to fall into simple clickbait scams do you? Well … I did. I clicked on a link shared by my friend on Facebook titled “[Shocking VIDEO] A giant Anaconda swallows Up a N**** Zookeeper in South Africa”.

Thankfully my antivirus blocked the website. Scrolling down my Facebook newsfeed, I observed something quite interesting. The related links to that particular link pointed it out that it’s a Facebook scam. Not bad, Facebook.

Lesson learned

  • Cybercrooks are always out there to get you by leveraging on your trust.

  • Think twice and verify the link before you click on it.

  • Install antivirus on your computer, and keep it updated.
