Looks Like Mashable's Facebook Page Got Hacked by a Spammer


At least twice today Mashable’s Facebook page was the target of a spammer. Co-Editor Ben Parr posted a message at 12:25 a.m. EST saying apologizing for the incidents and noting that Mashable was “working right now to resolve the issue permanently”.

Atrocious grammar aside the only other clear way to tell that there was something (ph)ishy was that the post, which claimed to show you how to get “2 Free Airline Tickets for Xmas with Delta Airways” had a byline that it was posted “via myjetblue”.
