Facebook The Upside of Facebook Spam

Quote:
A Facebook friend of mine who I havenít seen or talked to in years recently spammed me. He flooded my inbox with at least 10 invitations to "Get 2 Free Southwest Tickets!! Limited time only." I didnít have to Google the offer to figure out it was fake ó though Snopes does have a useful backgrounder on the scam and how it dupes Facebook users into spreading the message to all their friends.
