this message reveals some interesting points.
one thing, this main photographer is looking for international models but he doesn't know his business as well as English.
he must be thinking that im living in the 14th century where photoshop cs was available so that nobody can add a human head to a donkey or even to a cockroach
whoever this is, the spammer uses many real facts to make sure that this is not spam..(well shame on him/her effort bears no fruit at all)
this is a good lesson for everybody, never accept anybody unknown to your friend list in the Face book and believe me, some applications are horrible too. some serve as surveys and some serve as advertisements.so,add only the ones you want and just ignore all the other requests from buddies. if possible go to privacy settings and make them strict as possible so that unknown people cannot creep into ur photos and personal info.
specially try to avoid the super wall and the wall as much as possible.they are breeding ground for worms. but the thing is im so addicted to the wall that when i see a friend who doesn't allow others to write on his/her wall i go nuts. anyway, hats off to them for helping to fight cyber terrorism
Facebook is thus a "funny virus". the meaning is simple it is fun and harmful. so beware girls and guys.
one reccomendation: if you love usefull social networking, try http://www.linkedin.com/ instead of www.facebook.com. LinkedIn is a proffesional networking site where you can connect with millions of people who network for meaningfull and productive purposes. it also has some applications, place to update your status and so many usefull devices. just check it out.
