[BBC News] - Facebook news feeds beset with malware

Hi All
Just seen this:
[quote="Facebook news feeds beset with malware"]
One fifth of Facebook users are exposed to malware contained in their news feeds, claim security researchers.
Security firm BitDefender said it had detected infections contained in the news feeds of around 20% of Facebook users.
By clicking on infected links in a news feed, users risk having viruses installed on their computer.
Facebook said it already had steps in place to identify and remove malware-containing links.

Well as thay say this is the straw that  broke the camel's back, sorry family and friends but I will be deleting my Facebook account.

Sadly fashion prevails over common sense in many areas of life....especially for the young.
