Facebook unveils the Antivirus Marketplace

All the Facebook fanatics have news to be happy; the giant social network announced the Antivirus Marketplace yesterday and has sent the invite to the players like the Microsoft corporation, McAfee, TrendMicro, Sophos, and Symantec to the Facebook security family.

 “Starting today, we will be incorporating the combined intelligence of McAfee, Microsoft, TrendMicro, Sophos, and Symantec to Facebook's existing database of malicious URLs, and offering a wide selection of anti-virus software to our users. This program will help us provide even better protections to those using Facebook, no matter where they are on the web,” Facebook’s official page revealed.
The Facebook users will be able to download the full versions of the antivirus and that too without being charged a single penny. They will be able to download the licenses of any of the aforementioned antivirus for six months. This will further strengthen the Facebook’s already existing URL blacklisting system which at the present moment checks billions and billions of clicks per day.  

And that is not all folks, the said companies will be regularly contributing to the security Blog of Facebook and will be providing important materials all the time.
Folks, the Facebook Antivirus Marketplace will be available for both the Windows and Mac OS.
Long live the legacy of Facebook and its corporate collaborations!
