Truth about typing BFF on FB revealed!

There are some trending posts that typing the word “BFF” in a comment will reveal that your account is in danger.

An Example of such posts:

“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 in green, change your password immediately because it may be hacked by someone.”

How can anyone believe that Facebook, or Zuckerberg, would introduce the “BFF” as a method of determining if your account is at risk? The hoax is a  resemblance to an earlier hoax from 2016 that claimed typing in #177 as a comment could reveal a green bar which indicates that your account “has been hacked”. We can see a lot of people trying this method and getting fooled.

The fact is that Facebook have chosen some words as “special” comment brief visual animation to appear on the screen.

Typing the letters BFF shows two hands “high fiving” and shows in green color. There are also other words like including Congrats (or Congratulations) that turns orange and shows a brief visual animation when typed as well.
