Ok, so yesterday I did the fan check application of facebook, and today after I came from school, I saw that my homepage has gone mental with old statuses from my friends, anyway a friend than sent me a messige telling me how fan check app gives your account a virus that makes your homepage display old statuses and much more, so I dont know what to do :( I deleted the pic the app made, and I removed it but nothing has changed, there are still old statuses :( Can anyone help me?

Okay I think it works well now :D
I deleted my pic, removed all my tags, and removed and blocked the app
but the thing that bothers me, when I type it in the search bar it pops out like I still have it, but I removed it and blocked it :(

I never had that problem before, hmm now when I go on fancheck it says "upgrade in progress" so the status probably was just a glitch?

I rarely do aps, and I never get viruses, guess I'll stay away from that one regardless.. :whi:

I was *so* close to using this app the other day. Then I realised I really didnt care who visited my page the most :p

I don't think it has to do with the app; my page had old statuses earlier today. But when it was done for, i looked at the URL and momentarily, i saw "new.facebook.com" before it went back to just "facebook.com" maybe it was a server upgrade or something weird like that?

I don't bother with facebook enough to know what fan check is, but when I was on yesturday I saw that a friend had done it(whatever you do) and had the same problem most likely...hence "**** fan check!"


but I am not sure what you would do to get rid of it or avoid it:)

Oh wow this is so weird! :eek:

My friend made the fan check thing and I said okay let's do it too, I installed it and stuff and allowed the uploads, etc, but it wouldn't work for some reason, it says Facebook encountered an error. Maybe it's my antivirus/firewall stopping the eventual attack? Today Fan Check says it's adding new features, etc. are they fixing the virus? Who knows :rolleyes:

Yeah,I got that too.Strangely Facebook just showed old posts in the news feed(like 2-3 days old).My friend warned us by a message,and I removed any traces FanCheck had in my profile.I can say everything's OK now.

Strange, I used the fan Check app and it didn't affect me?
Neither did it affect my friends. :confused:

There are other viruses had been appeared through facebook, when you take a quiz and seeing for the result, you'll gonna recieve a message on the page that someone has a crush on you, or love you, or you have a message on a yellow moving color, so WATCH OUT!!!!
