Tip & How-To about Facebook Social Network
There are many requests concerning Facebook lately. Most of these seem to be caused by accounts being hacked or hijacked.
I strongly recommend everyone with a Facebook account should at least read Facebook's Security Page, or preferably Become a Fan of it, which will keep you up-to-date with security issues as they arise.
There is also a Facebook Security Help page at
which works on a question and answer format, looking at the most common security breaches occurring on Facebook.
Please read these and know in advance what might happen, rather than being caught out and trying to fix it later.
Make sure you have a good password for your Facebook page (and for everything else that requires a password). Don't use your name, your dog's name, a common word. These are all open to dictionary hacks, where common words are tried for passwords. Combine letters and numbers, like v1de0 instead of video (but don't use such a short word!). Don't give your password to friends, or hints about what it might be.
Practice safe keyboarding!
