facebook colorIn your Facebook travels, you may have come across an ad for a Facebook application called “Facebook color changer,” which says it can change the color of your Facebook layout from the traditional royal blue to black, orange, yellow, green, purple, almost any color in the spectrum.

Problem is, the app isn’t real. And if you click on it, you’ll be rerouted to a malicious phishing site that may infect your computer.

According to CNN Money, the “Facebook Color Scam” was discovered by security researchers working at Cheetah Mobile, which says the scam has affected more than 10,000 people in various countries around the world.

For the longest time, the three most dominant social networks were Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. But now, after the company turned down a $3 billion acquisition bid in November and talks of a $10 billion valuation earlier this year, there’s no app hotter than Snapchat right now

There’s data to prove it: According to the latest data from ComScore, which was charted for us by Statista, Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram are the most popular social platforms among users 18-34, but Snapchat is right behind those networks — and actually ahead of Twitter. It’s quite the incredible jump when you consider Snapchat’s audience penetration has almost doubled in nine months’ time, as the company’s audience was only 12.1% in November.
