This warning is more for how you personally use Facebook rather than how you manage Facebook pages, but since you can’t really do one without the other, I thought this was worth sharing. Apparently, the way Facebook rolled out its “like” feature has made it very easy for developers to create Like buttons that can link anywhere on the Web, not just within Facebook. As a result, it’s very easy to use this as a way send people to a page where they will unwittingly pick up a computer virus. Articles on the ReadWriteWeb blog and one of the Sophos blogs explain the situation pretty well. Bottom line: “like” carefully!
