I was just doing a post from my personal profile and tagged Evad Design in it. When I clicked to share, Facebook had a security check pop up. This looks to be something new they’ve implemented – I haven’t seen this before.

Why a Security Check

Spam. From Facebook “This is a standard security test that we use to prevent spammers from creating false accounts and spamming users” Yeah, I’ll click okay. Thanks for watch my back Facebook. Have you ever visited a Facebook page that you liked and saw a bunch of posts that didn’t really make sense? Or wall posts that did a bunch of advertising? That’s exactly the stuff they are aiming to crack down on.

It’s about time. Take a look.

I know that mustache is hard to avoid but have you seen this message before when tagging a friend or page?
