Facebook Steps Up Phishing Protection [bbc.co.uk]
As of next week, users will be warned if they are about to be taken to a malicious website.

Facebook already tells users if they are about to visit an external site, but the current set up makes no distinction between friendly and dangerous sites.

The new technology will present a warning screen whenever it suspects a page poses a threat to the users, giving details of the risk.
