I downloaded ‘Facicons’ which ended up being a spam. I got graphical smileys instead of plain one like these. 🙂 Everywhere it shows a sentence saying “I’ve added smileys to this status update. Wanna see them? Go to http://s.facicons.com/“, and asks you to download the application. Right now I can see this on so many friend’s status updates. It keeps circulating. 🙁
You can check it once you search for ‘ I have added smileys ‘. Just as we start thinking Facebook is changing the search scenario or getting better something like this happens.
I hope Facebook deals with such spam as soon as possible, till then I think I will have to remove this application. 🙁
Anyone knows any other good emoticons applications do let me know through your comments. 🙂
Editor’s Update: As mentioned in a comment below Facicons shows such links only when the person viewing these status updates does not have Facicons add-on or extension added on their browsers. This has been clarified in TOS and FAQs respectively. In my personal view this information should have been prominent on the Homepage itself which would have avoided such confusion.
