    WARNING:

    There is a facebook app that promises free Southwest tickets. It redirects towards the website swa35. info That website is a false but complete copy of southwest.com

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/mashable/201...your_friends_1

    This app is a VIRUS.

    copied for expediency , credit to dieuwer2 on FT. I nearly fell for it as it seems plausible for WN.

    Yet another reason to NEVER click on links if you don't know where they go. Mouseover a link and it should tell you the full URL before you go there. Look at the whole thing carefully! "5outhwest.com.scamu.net/freestuff" looks ALMOST legit... except for the 5 instead of an S and that there is more after the first (dot)com.

    Even if it comes from another FTer/MPer, don't click! Mine was a shortened link, similar to goo.gl/askdfjd
