Something I've Noticed...

In the last few days while randomly clicking around Facebook, I was surprised to see
this appear when clicking an external link:

Not sure when they started doing this, but definitely a good move as more and more people continue to target Facebook. Of course, Myspace have been popping up a "You are about to leave..." page for quite some time - out of interest, does anyone out there know of other types of website (non social networking ones) that have to resort to this kind of thing? Or is it only the 2.0 sites that have to pop up these warnings all the time?

I think we know the answer to that one...


I know that a few government sites do this "you are about to leave this page" type thing, but it's mostly to absolve the site of anything offensive that may appear on the outbound site.
