Signing Petition Against Dead Baby Jokes Page Gets Your Account Hacked? - Facebook Rumour

9 Aug 2012 - Article No: 1597. Filed under: Facebook Scams | Facebook Rumour

Rumours are circulating that signing an online petition against the controversial Facebook Page "Dead Baby Jokes" puts your Facebook account at risk of getting hacked. Other rumours assert that joining Facebook groups or pages protesting against the controversial jokes page will also put your account at risk.

The rumours are false and began to circulate after the increasing popularity of a Facebook Page named "Dead Baby Jokes" which essentially provides material directly related to the title of the page.

Inevitably the page sparked much anger and debate, and later online petitions for it`s removal. Whilst it is unlikely that such petitions will have any effect on removing the unethical page (Facebook basically green lighted the page by marking it as "controversial humour") signing such petitions will not cause your Facebook account to be hacked and neither will joining any groups or pages protesting against the joke page.

We have seen no indication that any foul play is occuring and the various ambigious messages about your Facebook account getting hacked provide no real detail in how the supposed trap actually works.

At the time of writing the Dead Baby Jokes Facebook page is still online, accumulating many thousands of likes.
