Like boldomatic, but for a desktop browser. (*sigh*)

I'm looking for a dead-simple tool that generates an image consisting of text on a plain, colored, rectangular background for posting to social media. (Please stop yelling. I agree with you. A family friend has asked me repeatedly for a recommendation. Saying, "no," is absolutely not an option here.) Is there an existing, uncomplicated tool that does this already? Browser-based would be fantastic. [more inside]

Facebook scams?

I've noticed a lot more 'chain letter' type stuff in my Facebook news feed recently. "See what happens when you press L!" for example, or any number of apps which will create data visualizations of your profile. What (if any) is the financial motivation behind this? I have a feeling that these may be used to gain access to large numbers of profile names, or (in the case of apps) get data-mining access to private profiles. Is this the case, or is it more innocuous than that?
