Hoax or Fact:

Scam

Analysis:

The message posted on Facebook comes with a video that instructs users to check new Facebook emotions/smileys for once at least. Called as the popular Facebook Emoji, it lists clear instructions on how to use short cuts to access the browser built in Developer tools, to copy, paste and execute their JavaScript code in the current Facebook homepage. Many unaware users got carried away with this interesting feature to check new emotions/smileys on Facebook and did the same - not realizing the Scam!

The message with link to JavaScript code seems to have been originally shared on 'Araam Nal daikh Vicho Kadni Aa' (Punjabi, which translates to 'take your time in looking') Facebook page on 14 May 2014. The page was however taken down later. When we followed the same instructions and tested their claim, after pasting their JavaScript code in browser console while in Facebook homepage, we observed the Facebook error message:

The content you requested cannot be displayed right now. It may be temporarily unavailable, the link you clicked on may have expired, or you may not have permission to view this page.

Upon closing the error warning, we did see the Facebook Smiley/Emotion Box that appears installed with the smile icon right next to the Facebook search box on top. As instructed in the video, we also checked to see the smileys work with a Facebook post. But like we have seen, not many would have understood this feature only works for the current browser session. More importantly, the unsuspecting Facebook users do not know the JavaScript code hacks into their account and generates lot of Facebook activity -- it's a click jacking marketing scam! As you can see from the pictures in Image Gallery, the Facebook activity log of our test account clearly shows that executing the JavaScript code in Facebook page drives the account into liking and following several Facebook lists, posts, and personal and celebrity pages. The Facebook error message mentioned above is most certainly because of the mass Facebook activity that the code generated.

In short, the Facebook post that lures users into trying the new Facebook emotions/smileys for once is actually a clever click jacking scam that hacks into your account and generates lot of activity without your consent and awareness. Note that the marketing scam even tries to lure and mislead users by mentioning a hot chat option. Beware of installing any such code from unknown sources; it can compromise your Facebook account.
