Facebook help forum overrun by spam

Facebook help forum overrun by spam Last year, Facebook saw its Help Center community forum taken over by spam.
This week, it has happened again, leaving the forum completely overrun.

The forums, which have 23 different sections, let users answer questions about various different topics.

Most of the spam, which should be familiar to anyone with a site or blog, focuses on streaming live sports matches and other links to unauthorized content. Most of the accounts are fake, but some others seem to have been hacked.

It looks like Facebook will have to crack down again before its gets too bad.
