    Does anyone know of any good tutorials for setup, using and security for a Facebook account?

    I just set one up and could use some help in getting it right.
    Also understand it is a favorite hunting grounds for virus and malware. Any suggestions there.

    Thanks,
    Richard Spring

    I'm not a heavy user of Facebook, but I think your main concern would be privacy rather than malware. There is a tendency for applications and services to want to share your profile information to new and sometimes unexpected places. Going through all the privacy settings is tedious, but if you start out by locking down the visibility of information to just your (Facebook) friends, that's a good start.

    Some possibly useful resources:

    Thank you Jefferson:

    Your link led me to another link http://www.cio.com/article/508121/Fa...About_Facebook
    which seem to have most of the answers I need.

    Will let you know how it works out.
