A lot of us are using Facebook to connect to other genealogists, some of whom we only know online….so remember, never click links from friends, unless you are completely sure of the link’s target. (Hint: Hover the mouse cursor over the link, and look in the status bar below the window…see if it says what it’s supposed to!)
And if you suddenly see something that looks like Facebook, but doesn’t show Facebook in the address bar, RETYPE Facebook’s web address into your web browser’s address bar. NEVER type in your login information on a redirect page.
