    Those 'Be like Bill' memes you're seeing on your Facebook feed may be making you chuckle, but if you're not careful they could end up giving you a big headache.

    The meme creates a story about you and asks you to share it with your friends on Facebook. But according to KFVS-TV in Missouri, the Better Business Bureau says you should read the terms of privacy first and make sure you're OK with what it states.

    The meme's creator, Bobla, says in its terms, "You will allow us to use, edit your content with our service permanently, no limit and no recover."

    KFVS says in some cases, the content could contain viruses that can damage your computer, access your Facebook profile or even find ways to get your credit card and bank account numbers.

    If you've already created the meme and shared it to your Facebook page, here's how you can remove it.

    Go to your Facebook settings and select the Apps category from the left menu. From there, hover over the appropriate app and click "X" to remove.

    In general, the BBB offers the following advice when navigating the Internet:


    • Don't take the bait. Stay away from promotions of "exclusive," "shocking" or "sensational" videos or photos.

      When in doubt, throw it out. Delete unsolicited emails or social media messages that raise red flags.

      Hover over a link to see its true destination. Before you click, mouse over the link to see where it will take you. Don't click on links leading to unfamiliar websites.

      Don't trust your "friends" online. It might not actually be your friends who are "liking" or sharing scam links to photos. Their account may have been hacked and scammers could be using another tactic called "clickjacking," a technique that scammers use to trick you into clicking on social media links that you would not usually click on.
