Scams are all over Facebook. There are stories telling users that Facebook will end on a certain date, miracle diet pills, celebrity sex tapes, and other shady posts. With a little vigilance, though, users can make sure that they’re not continuing the chain.

No matter how bored you may have become with Facebook’s blue color scheme, do not fall for messages and images that promise to turn your Facebook profile black, or other colors: A blue Facebook is still better than falling victim to a hijacked account or a survey scam.
