There’s a new scam on Facebook promising to reveal the "truth” about Coca-Cola, but do not click on it as it's all about extracting your personal information, according to a report on Mashable.com.

The message reads: “I am part of the 98.0 per cent of people that are NEVER gonna drink Coca Cola again after this HORRIFIC video,” followed by a link.

The report says that if you click on the link, you’ll be asked to share the video seven times. However, the counter doesn’t work, so eventually you’ll be tempted to click on a link that says “Cant Be Bothered To Wait? –> Click Here To Skip This.”

The second link takes you to a poll, which — you guessed it — is the central part of the scam. It asks you for personal information you should definitely not reveal to just anyone or any application, the website says.

And under no circumstances should you give away your personal information.
