Being aware: Digital citizenship and social media scams

I know they're looking for business, but Norton Internet Security's article on social media scams is definitely worth reading and passing on. In summary, five criminal tricks of the trade we need to watch out for are: chain letters (fake claims); cash grabs (cash-strapped 'friends' asking for money); hidden charges (entering your mobile number); phishing requests ("check out this link"); and hidden URLs (can install malware on your computer). Be there, but be aware!!
