An explanation of the Peter Kent Facebook hack:
Actually, that's thanks to a well-known weakness in the FB apps API. It ends up allowing people to post a link to an external website, and then have that link automatically share that link on the person's wall and to their friends. The conclusion? Peter Kent clicked on the link when he saw another victim post it, and it was automagically spread all around as if he'd intentionally shared it. I see those things blow by on my feed all the time... always good for a larf at the sucker that got conned into clicking the link.
Are we talking about a certain royal ass that became famous on twitter recently?
No. Fatter than that. See previous post.
Specifically, click on the facebook image to enlarge. More physically imposing than Kate, but far less elegant. Don't get me started on this kind of stuff, though.
Thanks for the h/t :)
As an aside, there's a downside to all of this... when you click on those links, you implicitly give permission to the person who is running the scam to rummage through some of your facebook information... and some of your friend's information as well.

He likes big butts and he can't deny. ;)
