What Will Happen If I Mistakenly Click the Share button?

  • You will be spamming your friends.
  • Excessive spamming might lead to our facebook account being suspended.
  • The fake webpages might be infected with malwares. (in some cases)
  • If the page asks you for login credentials, Then it is a Phishing Page and will steal your username password.

If you mistakenly clicked the link, Then don’t worry just don’t share the page by clicking the Recommend button. After you close the page, Logout of all your accounts (FB,Gmail etc) and download and use CCleaner to clear any tracking cookies left by the webpage. Also run a Virus Scan.

    Much thanks for this post! I have seen that post all over FB! I guess the only reason I never clicked on it was I thought it was going to be something gruesome! Anyway, glad you cleared it all up!

    Hi there, I actually got this & clicked on it. However, it wasn’t a new page shown but some commands I was asked to follow. I fell for it and it mass spammed the video to all those on my friend list. Will there be serious effect?

However, it stated for some security reason, i was to clicked on the URL >> enter J >> Ctl + V and the next moment it started to mass spam to all my friends on my FB via Fb Message. Can you suggest what do i do now? And is it a hack spam or?

      If you dont clean your profile and stop following such spams, it could lead to hurting your own as well as others social profile and also can lead to deletion of your account due to excessive spamming. There have been reports that mass facebook accounts are being compromised by hackers so change your password from any other Trusted PC and run a malware & virus scan on your pc.
