You cannot get a virus just by going to FB. You can, however, get a virus by clicking on a link within FB that downloads a virus to your computer. Some of those links will trick you by telling you that in order to read whatever you are trying to access that you have to update a program like Adobe, Java, Internet Explorer in order to perform the read and then it gives you a button to click on to perform the download. Sometimes it comes as an eGreeting Card. That is the trick and it then downloads the virus. IF you access social networking sites you must be prudent about what you allow to be loaded, just as you must be prudent about clicking on links in email and pop-up windows when you go to the Internet. Most of the good anti-malware programs will intercept and prevent the virus from being loaded. Most viruses get onto a persons computer because they failed to employ safe computing practices.
