Facebook has partnered with Microsoft, McAfee, TrendMicro, Sophos, and Symantec in an effort to protect against malicious URLs, spam, phishing, and viruses.
Facebook also introduced the Antivirus (or AV) Marketplace, where you can download a six-month license for a full version of anti-virus software, free of cost. The AV Marketplace can be accessed within the Facebook Security section of the site.
"We believe that arming our users with anti-virus software will help empower them to stay safe no matter where they are on the web," said the company in facebook blog post.
The social network has continuously come under fire regarding its efforts to protect its members. Facebook's new partnership is a move in the right direction, and should help to improve user experience across the platform.
