Question about Computers & Internet
An account on a social networking website such as Facebook can be a prime target for hackers. If you have lost access to your Facebook account because it has been hacked, your first priority is to regain access to the account before the hacker can send messages to your friends that could result in their accounts being compromised as well.
Facebook provides tools that you can use to recover a compromised account, based on whether or not your personal email account has been hacked as well.If You Can Access Your Email
1. Open a Web browser and navigate to the Facebook account recovery page using the Resource link.
Click the link after Step 1 on the page.
2. Click the link after Step 1 on the new page to begin the process of resetting your Facebook password.
Click in the box under "Enter Your Facebook Username," and type the name that you use when logging in to Facebook.
Alternatively, use the first box to enter the email address or phone number associated with your account.
Click the "Search" button.
A security check window appears.
Type the words that appear on the screen, and then click "Submit."
Click the "Reset Password" button.
Facebook sends an email to the address linked to your account.
The email address is displayed on the screen.
If the email address displayed is not your own, it means that the hacker who compromised your account changed the email address associated with it. If this is the case, follow the steps in the section "If You Cannot Access Your Email."
Check your email address for a message titled "Facebook Password Reset Confirmation."
Open the email and click the link contained within.
The Web browser navigates to the Facebook password reset page.
Type the password that you would like to use for your Facebook account, and then type it a second time to confirm that you entered it correctly.
Click "Change Password" to log in to the account.
If You Cannot Access Your Email
Open a Web browser and navigate to the Facebook account recovery page using the Resource link.
Click the link after Step 2 on the page.
Click the first link on the new page if your email account has been hacked and you no longer have access to it, or click the second link if you followed the steps in the section.
"If You Can Access Your Email" and the email address displayed was not your own.
Type the phone number or username of your Facebook account, and then click "Search."
If you are unable to get a match, type your name plus the name of one of your Facebook friends.
Type the words displayed in the security check box, and then click "Submit."
This brings you to a Web form titled "My Account Has Been Compromised."
Fill in the information requested on the form, including your Facebook username, your name, any email addresses associated with the account, your own email address and a description of the problem.
This sends a message to Facebook notifying its support staff that your account has been compromised.
Before unlocking your account, a member of the Facebook staff will contact you to confirm your identity.

See, how can anyone create a fake account?. Anyone create an account in yahoo.
Anyway, if you can log into you yahoo account then change the password. Then he will not be able to use your account. The same thing you can do in your facebook account.
