Facebook has launched Antivirus marketplace on its Facebook security page to make the web safer. Facebook AV marketplace offers free editions of antivirus software from Norton, Sophos, McAfee, Microsoft and Trend Micro for free.
The best free Antivirus among those offered is arguably Microsoft Security Essentials for Windows and Sophos AntiVirus for Mac. These free Av suites are licensed for a period of 6 months to one year.
Facebook will also share URL blacklists with these AntiVirus vendors to expand its own URL blacklists to prevent malicious links from spreading on Facebook. This is great new for Facebook users and spam haters.
