tn_tinyman Facebook Virus?
Could this be another Facebook virus?
Many Facebook users have been worried about the term “ref=tn_tinyman” that has been added to the end of their Facebook URL’s. This was first reported around the first of November and has many users thinking their Facebook is hacked or their browser is infected.
The tn_tinyman script is just some inner code that was just recently implemented. Facebook has been doing a ton of major changes and getting ready to release their new feature called Facebook “Timeline”. Erasing or changing the tn_tinyman variable makes no difference in how your profile is shown, making the code seemingly useless. This could be a glitch or bug that was overlooked, or this could be a new feature that will be showing up very soon. If you view the page source code, you can see the term tinyman is being used in several CSS classes which are in charge of page formatting.
This may not make much sense to someone that doesn’t know how to read code or design a webpage, but this is not a new Facebook virus or Malware threat… your account is not hacked or compromised.
