Don't confuse this for something it's not - this is a revenue opportunity
for Facebook and nothing more.

McAfee will be paying Facebook either for every copy installed, and/or for
every copy renewed after the the 6 month trial.

In the US and many other countries, anti-virus products from most of the
major AV vendors are very frequently available "free" - at least for home
use.  Of course "free" is a 6 or 12 month license, which then requires
renewal after the 6/12 month period.
