Facebook Implementing HTTPS All The Time

Following up on a promise from a couple of years ago, Facebook is implementing HTTPS connections all the time to all it's users - previously, this was an option found in the account settings. There may be some slight slowdown due to the overhead a secure connection entails, but it's expected to be barely noticeable (famous last words?). The secure type of connection is of particular value to mobile and wireless Facebook users, as it helps protect against the interception of data by others, because the data is encrypted (scrambled).
