Facebook the social networking giant is always thinking about making it’s place better for it’s regular users and now this time we are talking about the Facebook Security what will protect the FB users from various malware what is viral now a days even on mac OS so it’s time to check the facebook AV marketplace to download free anti-virus software for free to make it all safe for next 6 months and after that you will need to upgrade by paying the company pricing of the product you might be interested to use that time.
In partnership with the anti-virus makers like Sophos, Norton, MacAfee, Trend Micro and Microsoft facebook launched it’s own security page or say marketplace from where you can buy anti-virus, no doubt the free version is limited to download only once for every account holder of the FB so next time you will need to buy your software.
Facebook Offering Free Anti-Virus Software
So it’s a win-win situation for the users as well as company, how for the company ? actually facebook added these company products in their facebook AV marketplace what means they joined affiliate marketing offering of those companies and will receive commission after every successful sale of their security products as shown in the image below.
Now it’s another reason the users of facebook would likely to return back to the facebook for downloading their free anti-virus if the previously moved to google plus or twitter forgetting about the facebook.
According to a blog post published on facebook blog page they said that more than 900 million users are now safe due to this marketplace offering and they also introduced an URL blocking system to protect you from the spam and any kind of attack using the clickable messages on your wall.
The company is also working on their own side and now everyday they are scanning more than 25 trillion of pages to protect the overall network from the deadly viruses.
So SECURITY is one more reason not to leave Facebook
Yeah google+ and twitter is still safe than facebook because of their base security model and that’s the reason they don’t need any security marketplace like the facebook introduced – I know that facebook is not only serious about the security but also about making more profit this year and hence selling the anti-virus softwares what is really a need of every common out at the sites like facebook because these site alone can give you alot of viruses in your system to make you decide for buying another system.
