If You Play This Game on Facebook Your Account Could Get Hacked
Quizzes and games are everywhere on Facebook. Hopefully you haven't already played this one, or your Facebook account could be compromised.
What My Little Pony character are you? Only people from (city) will understand this! You tell us your favorite toe and we'll tell you what college major you should choose. We've seen it all. If nothing else, in 2017 Facebook has become the go-to place for fake news and time-sucking quizzes. For the most part they're pretty harmless, but this one is blatantly aimed at stealing your Facebook password.
