Facebook announces Antivirus Marketplace | ZDNet | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Facebook has partnered with five companies (Microsoft, McAfee, TrendMicro, Sophos, or Symantec) to provide improved security for its users.


First let’s talk about the free software, since everyone likes free stuff. The AV Marketplace is aimed at the hundreds of millions of Facebook users who don’t currently have this security protection on their computer. You can download six-month licenses to full versions of anti-virus software at no charge from Microsoft, McAfee, TrendMicro, Sophos, or Symantec. After that, you’ll have to pay up.
