The top news of Facebook is that typing the word ‘BFF’ is a hoax and people are falling for it!
According to the top news stories, we all came across a post on our Facebook profiles which claimed that typing the word ‘BFF’ will help us know whether our Facebook accounts are safe or not. The post said that if the letters BFF appear in green, then our accounts are safe, and if they don’t, then our Facebook accounts are at a risk of being hacked.
The post went viral in a day and started being shared by everyone. Also, people could not help but comment on the post to confirm whether their IDs are in danger or not.
The rumor was something like this:
“Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, invented the word BFF. To make sure your account is safe on Facebook, type BFF in a comment. If it appears green, your account is protected. If it does not appear green, change your password immediately because it will be hacked.”
This fake news made every user panic and the post started going viral throughout the world within seconds. Thousands of people fell for this Facebook hoax without using their brains and created an uncertain scenario all over Facebook, giving rise to this crazy fake news.
Sorry to burst your bubble guys, but BFF simply means ‘Best Friends Forever’ and has nothing to do related to the security of your Facebook accounts. However, this should be noted that Facebook does have a feature known as ‘Text Delight’ which is the reason why the text BFF turns green when you type it. And for the people who typed the word but it did not go green is due to their settings on Facebook. Also, Text Delight has different text animations for some special words such as Congratulations, You Got This, and Best Wishes.
