  1. Looks like another tempting experiment to go for. But after my recent experiences with a facebook trojan (though I’m not sure now if it really is ‘the’ facebook trojan), I’m staying off facebook for a while. I’m not touching anything with ‘facebook’ on its title or name, at least for a few weeks. 🙂
