Yes, agreed! A lot of other people have a fun and fine time with Facebook. My mother and stepfather, yeesh, that is another story. Whenever they get a new device, they get frustrated and throw it at me to solve it, sometimes. It's pretty simple when you Google the problem (correctly!) or you explore on your own. But, I don't mind the extra fun problem solving, so I don't complain.
Also, royster, most of the links were talking about users clicking on links leading outside of Facebook and then getting infected with malware or viruses, not clicking on something inside of Facebook itself and getting infected by Facebook. Those users need to be aware of phony links outside of Facebook.
