Looks like it isn’t ending anytime soon.  This time instead of a status update, the spam is hitting people’s wall in Facebook.

I am utterly speechless after reading Marcias weight loss blog go her!! those things really work!

I hope this does not escalate to the level of spam that Twitter gets.

Again, it’s probably the person’s computer infected with some sort of virus or malware.  Remember to remind them to scan for viruses and spyware before they embarrass themselves too much!


New mobile phone virus?  A message from 3 hours ago in my friend feed (posted via Facebook Mobile) read:

I’m 8 1/2 pounds lighter thanks to the FREE trial pack of this new colon cleanser that I got! visit to get yours! zoR

Now, I’m not one to judge, but I’m pretty sure my friend wouldn’t admit to something like this.  There are a couple other instances of the message with a variable code at the end… in this case “zoR”

If it is in fact a mobile phone virus, my friend was using an iPhone.

Anyone else seeing messages like this?

As mentioned in the comments, this is happening to people who do not even own mobile phones. Remember to scan your computer for viruses/malware if your account posted the message.  And it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to change your password at this time.
