Facebook continues to look out for its users who are part of the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) community, using a post on its Facebook Safety page to promote “What LGBT Communities Should Know About Online Safety,” a tip sheet from the LGBT Technology Partnership, Stop Think Connect, and the National Cyber Security Alliance.

The Center for Information Assurance and Joint Forensics Research at the University of Alabama at Birmingham announced a $250,000 grant from Facebook Monday, and the funding comes not from the company’s coffers, but from money that Facebook has recovered from spammers around the world. The donation is in recognition of the center’s role in tracking international criminals behind social media botnet Koobface, as well as other spammers.
You can never be too safe while you’re online, and on that note, the National Cyber Security Alliance will hold an event Friday that will stream on Facebook Live.
