Facebook SPAM

I use facebook. Not like a lot of people who are actively doing stuff there every day, but I use it occasionally to contact pepole who seem to have adopted it as their only form of electronic communication.

I received this message from one of my “friends” the other day. It smacks of SPAM.

I’M SORRY TO HAVE TO SEND THIS! Reply Facebook is recently becoming very overpopulated,there have been many members complaining that Facebook is becoming very slow. Records show that the reason is that there are too many non-active Facebook members and, on the other side, too many new Facebook members.

We will be sending this message around to see if members are active or not. If you are active please send to at least 15 other users using Copy Paste to show that you are still active. Those who do not send this message within 2 weeks will be deleted without hesitation to create more space.

Send this message to all your friends and to show me that your still active and you will not be deleted.

Founder of Facebook,
Mark

I’m going to go out on a limb here and:
a) not forward it on.
b) guess that my account will be just fine.

Anyone know any better? I doubt that my facebook account is going to be deleted, I’m worth too much even if I access it infrequently.

    Yeah, it seems really odd. Like some kind of spam fake mail test.

    Low and behold. My facebook account still appears to be working :) .

    Yep, I wonder when spam is going to become an issue on Facebook as well.
