Have you seen the following warnings recently in your Facebook account?
“Turn off secure browsing? We can’t display this content while you’re viewing Facebook over a secure connection (https). Would you like to temporarily switch to a regular connection (http) to use this app? You will have a secure connection upon your next login” or,
“Please Update Your Secure Tab URL. To make sure users can view your app over a secure browser connection (https), please visit the developer console to update your Secure Tab URL.”
What is causing these pesky error messages? Well, Facebook is preparing to implement a MAJOR change on October 1, 2011 which aims to bring site security up a notch. This will make it less likely, for example, that while you are browsing Facebook over an insecure WIFI network, etc. that someone can hack access into your account.
However, as a result of this change, certain custom developed Facebook business pages and welcome pages on custom tabs will no longer be able to be viewed within Facebook. This presents a big problem and headache for a number of businesses and individuals who have these unsecured pages embedded in their Facebook pages and tabs. Businesses, their customers, and other Facebook users are already beginning to see the aforementioned warnings in their Facebook accounts.
