    Updated Facebook security tips

    Facebook security, or lack thereof, has become a real problem with many people. This has led to many deactivating their accounts, or even having their accounts deleted.

    Facebook seems to be taking this concern more seriously. A Google search of Facebook Security shows many sites discussing this problem and discussing ways to implement increased security on Facebook.

    Going even further, searching for Facebook Security Tips shows many actual tips for protection of your security and privacy while using Facebook.

    Facebook has gone even further, developing a special page and app called Facebook Security tips.

    The headings for the various categories are as follows:

    Threats
    The AV Marketplace
    Blog
    Facebook Security Guide
    Security Quiz
    White Hat
    Tips
    Take Action

    It does appear that Facebook may finally be considering the overall Security of Facebook. I would suspect we will see more of these type articles as time goes on and security issues continue to be in the lime light. Today we all have to be concerned about our security and privacy in our dealings with social networks.

    These problems are not confined to Facebook. A lively discussion on Facebook and other social media networks is once again in order. What are your feelings.

    Hmmm, it seems no one has any discussion on this topic, oh well.

    Now, Now Ted..... I haven't been on in a couple of days and just saw the post. I for one am always concerned about internet safety. I just went over there and was very surprised when I clicked on a few things and they went absolutely no where, and other said I wasn't authorised to use that app. that I can understand, because I have all but 2 apps blocked. Apps IMHO are the biggest source or at least one of the biggest sources of headaches on Facebook.

    I do not install any of the apps either. That Timeline app seems to be rocketing in popularity. I do not use it. One of the links I posted will take you to the Security Tips page. I was asked to update an old thread about Facebook Security to make it more appropriate today. This is what I came up with. Perhaps someone that has used some of the apps could jump in and let us know how they feel about Security.
