FALSE: Has Your Facebook Been Running Slow Internal Spybot Rumor
Most of you have probably seen the latest ‘pass-it-rumor’ circulating, telling us there is an internal spybot on our Facebook profile, which is supposedly making our computers slow. It goes something like:

In other words, it’s some little app, like one of the FB games, quizzes, etc., that a FB glitch caused to loose the “address” to its “name.” So you could kind of say it has amnesia and doesn’t know who it is. If FB is phasing out out something that affects where it is stored, that pretty much explains how it got glitched!
