These are just screengrabs of two messages which popped up while I was watching fishing videos on Utube.
I each case I just quit, without clicking on either.

Anyone else had these?
Is it something to beware of?

i've had the social media tracker... it's when FB or Twitter links are posted to a site like MD, their trackers infest the computers of anybody who's been on the thread the link was posted on.

Just another reason why i have my settings to clear everything when i shut down my browser.

Thanks for the replies!
I'm going to unsubscribe from facebook, I never use it now, and they send me 3 or 4 emails every day from my "friends", a lot has happened since you last logged on, etc ...
No it hasn't!

It makes no difference if you're on facebook or twitter it's because the link is to something on their site :)
