“F— You Faggot. Go Kill Yourself”: Facebook Spam Just Got A Whole Lot Hatier

[UPDATE: Who exactly is Nicole Santos? We unearth some clues!]

Were you one of the many Facebookers last night greeted by some variation of the following message on your wall? — “Fuck you faggot. Go kill yourself. Do whatever the fuck you want. I hate you and the only way to remove all these posts is by disabling this below.” If so, welcome to the new era of Facebook spam!

As Facebook gradually replaces e-mail, it’s no longer just hooker-bots, Farmville invites, and stupid quizzes filling your inbox. Now homophobic spammers want to enrage you and your friends into giving all your personal info by clicking a “disabling link.” Of course, Facebook won’t change anything on their system until they get flooded with user complaints, but if they’re not more vigilant about keeping trash like this off their network, they could easily become the next MySpace.

And who the heck is Nicole Santos anyway?
