I normally take little notice of Facebook's "Suggested posts" on my feed. Today I looked at two - one was malicious and the other a fraud.

 

The first one I looked at installed a browser hijacker ("Microsoft" voice alert with scam contact number).

 

The second promotes a scam website in the UK, which is currently having action taken against it by a French company it is impersonating.

Since these are "official" recommendations from Facebook on people's feeds, I consider it a very poor state of affairs, and have told Facebook that, to the miserable degree you're actually able to convey something to FB...

This is your "thanks" for help in making Zuckerberg the 3rd richest person. Personally, i prefer to not join such venues for a wealth of reasons............and no, I'm not anti-social.
