Facebook to Check Every Link for Viruses

While most of you are smart enough to avoid clicking on questionable Facebook links, something like this is a good idea for the average user that clicks on everything.

If the system does not detect a problem with a link, the user will be allowed to visit the page as normal, without any sign that it has been checked. When a threat is detected, however, Facebook will present a warning with links to more information. If the user wants to proceed anyway, they will be allowed.
