So what exactly is the virus/bug?
A friend of your will message you image of something (possible some dirty image) and ask you to forward it to on Facebook, with promise of giving a reward or any other such benefit. Once you forward it – You will get blocked from messaging or posting anything on Facebook for 72 hours. This is because bots on Facebook will detect that image (the one you forwarded) as nude/sexual content or something that violates Facebook terms. This is because the image is specially designed in a way that Facebook bots think of it as spam, or something that violates their terms.
It is strongly recommended that you do NOT forward any such message to anyone if you receive it to avoid getting blocked from using Facebook for 72 hours.
