The new page was intended to enlarge a virtual Safety Center that Facebook introduced in April and was based on a "security page" that boasted more than 2.2 million "fans" as of Monday.

The number of people using the world's leading social-networking community topped the 500 million mark last week, meaning one in every 14 people on the planet has now signed up to the social network.

Founded in February 2004, Facebook is now a privately held company and is headquartered in Palo Alto, California.
