Why Facebook's partnership with Websense falls short on protecting users.
Earlier this week Facebook announced a partnership with Websense to help keep users safe from outgoing malicious links. Security experts have weighed in on the issue, and while a step in the right direction, this will not be enough to secure the platform.
The Websense collaboration will provide users with great protection on what lies outside the realm of Facebook by scanning links to external sites. The problem is what goes on internally on Facebook. According Network World, “Facebook still has a lot to do to clean its own house.”
