Facebook Image Like/Comment Scams, Are you also victim of it?


Few days back, I also become victim of one such scam on facebook where I liked and commented below an image to see what happens next. I waited for some times to see that if anything will happen or not. As it was a scam message so nothing happened at all.

Many such messages are very common online where we see compelling pictures and we are forced to think what will happen next.

It is written above this picture that when you will comment and like this image then you will see a miracle.

One of such example is here

Facebook Image Scam, Girl Pic, Comment scam,

However, nothing happens because first it is a scam message and second there is no such technique which can show new picture when you like or comment.

However, many innocent users become victim of such facebook image scams like me.

Here are examples of some other pictures used for Facebook image scam.
 
Facebook image scam, Trains to Collide
Example 1 Facebook Image Scam

facebook, image scam, snake to cow
Example 2 Facebook Image Scam

Facebook, image scam, wolf to eat man
Example 3 Facebook Image 

The main secret behind these pictures is quick method to become popular on facebook and make money. Facebook gives more importance to pages and stories which have higher numbers of likes and comments on them. These pages are given higher rank on facebook and shown first on search result.

Therefore, by utilizing curiosity of common facebook users, these image scammers generate millions of likes and comments for their facebook pages and make them successful and high ranking in short time.

Later, scammers sell these pages for good prices to different people or originations who do not want to start from zero.

Therefore, next time you see such compelling images on facebook which tells you to comment or like then please ignore them or report them.
