It’s like the Avengers of Social Networking
“If we can’t save your computer from the viruses, you can be damn sure we’ll avenge it!” – Tony Zuckerberg (aka Iron Man)
Facebook, the leading social networking site with over 845 Million users, has finally decided to get serious about all of the malware and virus links that masquerade as cute videos about kittens and offers for free stuff that lure unsuspecting users into clicking links that infect their computers.
The company announced Wednesday that they have teamed up with the leading Anti-Virus makers (Microsoft, McAfee, TrendMicro, Sophos, and Symantec) to install better virus scanning of links on the Facebook side of things, and to offer free six-month trials of their Anti-Virus software to all of Facebook’s users.
If you run a Windows-based PC and you frequent Facebook then you ABSOLUTELY MUST have some sort of Anti-Virus program installed on your machine. If you want to try the 6-month trials Facebook is offering you can visit the Facebook Security Center and grab the one of your choice.
