Reader's Notes - Staying Safe on Facebook

As the day approaches where every person on the planet has some sort of social media account, the volume of junk e-mail, Internet hoaxes and scams, and sheer prankdom is sure to explode.  Within the past week, Facebook had an outbreak of n008 panic with the "copyright your life before it's sold by the Internet" postings on people's profile page, prompting Cracked to create "Five More Facebook Chain Letters That Will Keep You Safe." More useful and less snarky is the website Hoax-Slayer, which indexes and updates the world of Internet (and other) hoaxes, so we may all be safe from each other.  It's also good for some LOLs -- Lucifer Our Lords, that is.
