Here is a word of caution that is obvious to most security professionals but average Facebook-er doesn’t typically know about. When you repost, link, or like an article you are essentially creating a social graph between all of your users and the users that came before and after your connection. So before you link to that next latest lost puppy article you might want to verify the fax from a legitimate source otherwise you’re just creating a social graph for this spamster is to attack.
