Anyone else having difficulty with FaceBook today? Is the site itself having problems or is it just my connection? Other sites seem to be loading fine - albeit a little slowly - but FB won't play...

they've been having problems with the "new security" failing to deal with the viral apps seen folks with 3 new ones today, as well as a couple of old ones catching up with folks who only log on at weekends.

The best ones are the ones that persuade you to download a "flash update" been rather amusing watching them go round.

but yeah most of us have had problems with the servers updating

Yeah I've noticed a lot of those 'profile tracker apps' doing the rounds so I guess there are still a few suckers out there spreading them. I should've thought FB could put out warnings about them.

They do! it's just folk don't sign up to receive them http://www.facebook.com/security personally I signed up to sophos updates as well http://www.facebook.com/SophosSecurity both give step by step instructions on how to "clean" your FB profile and beef up your security.

And please people if you allow your children to use things like facebook do explain to them NOT to download things from facebook. in the last hour quite a few shetland tweens/teenagers fell for the "dislike button" scam including downloading a nasty little surprise. That'll be a fun one for parents to clean up.
