Facebook offers free security software — but wait! It’s not really free
It’s all about the money. Facebook’s (supposed) 901 million users will be treated to “free” security software from Norton, McAfee, Trend Micro and Sophos but it’s not really free. If you are a Facebook user (and according to Facebook everyone is) you’re going to have access to some of the biggest names in the security software business — free.”
But it’s not free. Norton and its ilk have taken a beating from the free (and better) antivirus programs
but they’re not giving up. It’s all about the money – Facebook’s and the security companies’ – but it’s not all about you or keeping you safe.
The “free” versions that Facebook are offering are nothing more than the extended trial versions that computer manufacturers have been putting on computers for years.
