If you don't know what my post was about by now I'm not going to repeat it a third time.
said by MomOfARocker:Avast partnering with Facebook is not even remotely the same as Norton Toobar adding a Facebook share icon. This about providing a service to Facebook users. There is no change to the Avast program. It will only affect Facebook users.
So sorta like the same thing with NIS 2013 that everyone over in the Norton forums is up in arms about. Many users are choosing not to upgrade (myself being one) and many are reverting back to 2012 or leaving Norton all together. I'm not planning on leaving Norton but I have no interest whatsoever in having anything to do with Facebook on my security program especially when it is currently not possible to disable it. So till that's changed I'll stay with the 2012 version.
said by "avast! blog » Facebook connects with AVAST to protect users" :I see this as a positive step for Facebook users.
AVAST is sharing its Virus Lab data with Facebook in the combined attempt to prevent malware being shared unknowingly by Facebook users. Whenever someone clicks a link within Facebook, Facebook checks the URL in the AVAST cloud, in real time. If the URL is infected, the user sees a message warning of the potential threat.
