      Thanks for removing the link,I didn't know how to go about something like that. Anyway,,I warned my friends on Facebook of what WOT said and told them to install WOT and see for them selves about the Phishing and other accusations. Guess what ?? About an hour later the link is "GONE". What do you make of that????

        Hey Claw - I'd say enough complaints have filtered through for FB to sit up and take notice. :)

        BTW: The link you posted was not only flagged RED by WOT, clicking on it also initiated a malicious site warning from Avast - not good!!

        FB is generally as safe as any other site, provided of course users employ a common sense approach. The problem lies largely with FB's immense popularity making it a desirable target for dishonest people, that and users propensity for just clicking around with gay abandon. If one configures FB's settings for maximum privacy, does not agree to share personal information with apps, etc., and simply treats all links with extreme caution, one can generally use FB without any problems.
