Habitual Facebook users more likely to be caught in phishing scams
(International Communication Association) Receiving an email that claims you are the recipient of a large sum of money from an unknown deceased relative immediately raises a red flag. These email scams are often trashed or filtered through spam folders. But what about on social networks where there is no filter? A recent study published in the Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication found that people who habitually use Facebook were more susceptible to being victims of online scams.
