Facebook - Be careful when you grant permissions
Always be careful when you use the ALLOW access function within your Facebook account. This function differs from the LIKE capability and may lead to spam advertising posts on your wall or your friends.

-- post messages to your Facebook wall
-- access all Facebook account data
-- log in AS the Facebook account owner.
Had you followed this, here’s what would have appeared on your Facebook wall and on friends’ walls overnight: a post that appeared to be from your account “The earth is a spaceship” with a shortened link. However the link leads to insurance and other advertisements
