Watch out for Google+ spam invites on Facebook

 Google+ (Googles popular new Social network, which sadly can't be used by those under 18) is a network that everyone is trying to get into. How as reported by Sophos you need to be on the look out for spam/scam invites to join Google+ spreading around Facebook. As you may have noticed in the Sophos article is showed a photo of a fake fan page that had 80,037 "likes" of people trying to get that invite. Well I was able to find the same page and it had 80,601 "likes" at the moment. That goes to show people are willing to allow random Facebook apps access their account to they can gain access to this invite only social network by Google. If you see this inform them that liking that page will not get them access to Google+

 Also in case you are wondering no I have not tried Google+ yet due to the fact you have to be 18 or older to try out the service. When they remove that restriction I will try it out.
