Just a PSA for the readers, stay away from Facebook+

 

It has been flagged as malware, and is the biggest pain to remove.  Brad, please remove it from the article when you can, no need spreading that PoS code (Liability much?)

Hey DDR,

I'd heard of a couple of malware-like extensions with similar uses -- one is linked to right in the comments of the Facebook+ extension, and another one, Google+Facebook, is warned against here -- but I couldn't find anything saying the specific Facebook+ extension was bad news.

I wish I could find the exact article, but I saw it featured on LifeHacker.  Some linked to a reddit that had the breakdown of all the code in the extension, and what it does

Hey DDR,

Thanks for continuing to check in, first off! Next, I think this Lifehacker post may be the one you're talking about, and it's about Google+Facebook, not the Facebook+ extension. The stupidly similar names may be causing some confusion.
