It is a HOAX Kathleen, they are all HOAXES. There is a website called Snopes, you just put in the first line and it will tell you. They are all written by 12 year old kids to get a bit of fame.

    Just ignore them, but I always reply back to the person that sent it to me with HOAX in big letters!

    I think this may be the one you got recently.

    False. It is impossible to get a virus unless you click on an exe file. All the Facebook 'Virus' warnings are all hoaxes. Check Snopes by copying and pasting the first line into Google and then click on the Snopes link.

    Here is one of them, but as I say ALL HOAXES! You will see this on is from 2 days ago, but was recycled from 2011 !!!!

Top 10 Facebook tips

Below is a listing of our top 10 tips for the popular social networking website Facebook.

Hide users, games, polls, etc.

It quickly gets annoying seeing some users posts, game invites, polls, etc. Hovering your mouse to the right of the post and clicking the Hide button as shown below can hide any post. Once this button is pressed you'll be prompted with the option to hide that user or in the case of a Facebook application the option to hide that application from ever showing up on your profile.


To unhide someone or unblock an application click the Edit Options link in the bottom right corner of the news feed as shown below.


Greasemonkey and FB Purity

Although Facebook does not allow the ability to hide friends getting new friends messages, friends becoming fans of something, and some application messages they can still be hidden with browser add-ons. If you're running Mozilla Firefox, Chrome, Opera, or Safari we suggest installing the Facebook Purity add-on

Update your privacy settings

Click Account in the top right corner of the Facebook window and then click Privacy settings to adjust who is capable of seeing what on your Facebook profile. We highly recommend going through all the privacy settings to verify your privacy is properly protected.

Anything that is not set to friends only or friends of friends can be seen by anyone searching on the Internet. Below is a few things we recommend for most users.

1. Under Search in Privacy settings uncheck Public Search Results. This will prevent users from finding your account and profile picture in search results such as Google

2. Under Application settings, make sure you're only allowing applications you want to have access to your information. Applications that you grant rights to can have access to your Facebook profile information.

Use the Facebook top bar for navigation


Knowing how to properly navigate is vital if you want to get the most out of Facebook. Below is a brief description of each of the available options in the top bar as shown above.

Home (facebook logo) - Clicking this logo will take you to your wall (News Feed) that shows all friends recent posts.

Friend requests - If any friend requests are waiting to be approved this icon will show a notification of how many friends are waiting for approval. This icon can also be clicked when you want to view any friend recommendations or search for friends on Facebook.

Messages - This section allows you to send and receive private messages between one or more people you're friends with.

Notifications - Any time a friend or Facebook application creates a new post you'll be notified in this section. Clicking this icon will show all recent notifications. If you wish to change what is capable of sending you notifications including any Facebook applications or games click the See All Notifications link at the bottom and check or uncheck what you want to be notified on.

Search - Finally, the search box in Facebook can be a powerful tool that can be used to quickly find any current friends or people on Facebook. In addition searching for terms such as a company name, product, sports team, music band, etc. will find fan pages and groups that can be joined.

Modify your account notifications

Keep your e-mail and your cell phone clean by updating or eliminate Facebook notifications or keep more up-to-date by adding new notifications. Facebook notifications can be added and removed by clicking Account link in the top right corner, then Account Settings, and then clicking the Notifications tab.

Top News and Most Recent


By default Facebook will display your wall postings in the News format, which means it only displays posts it believes are most relevant to you. These results are based on your past interaction with your friends. If you want to see every post made by all your friends that are not hidden click the Most recent link in the upper right section of your news feed as shown in the above picture example.

If you want to adjust who shows up manually click the Edit Options in the bottom right corner of your news feed.


View High School work friends

If you've added your High School or previous Work locations to your profile, quickly see all classmates and co-workers on Facebook by clicking the link in your Info tab under your profile.

Quickly change profile picture

Your profile picture can be quickly changed to any other picture by visiting your profile, hovering the mouse over your current profile picture, and clicking the Change Picture link that appears in the top right corner of the picture.

Don't post private information on friend's walls on in comments

When you make a post on a friend's wall or in any of their comments realize that any of their friends are going to be able to see that post. If you wish for something to remain only between you and a friend send them a Facebook message instead.

Suggestions and random friend invites

As you get more friends on Facebook it will begin making friend, groups, and fan suggestions. These are suggestions made by Facebook and not your friends. Unless these are something you're interested in they can be ignored.

This same rule can be applied to people who may want to be your friend that you don't know. If you don't know someone don't accept his or her friend invite. Once someone becomes your friend they'll have access to any information your friends are capable of seeing.

Tag your Facebook friends in your photos

Always make sure to tag any of your Facebook friends that are in pictures you upload. However, never tag someone who is not in the picture. When someone is tagged in a photo that picture is automatically added to that persons profile and is a great way to share pictures
internet search facebook login
once logged in in the left hand corner on the facebook homepage you will click on edit my profile then on profile picture which you can remove across to the right you will see a browse tab where you can browse to your new photo to upload

I was speaking to a friend on Facebook on Sunday, or at least I thought it was my friend. A link popped up asking me "Do I want to laugh". Thinking that my friend sent it to me I proceeded to try...


You have a virus on your computer from clicking the link you were sent. Your friend who sent it to you also had/has a virus.

You need to clean your computer of this virus by performing a virus scan, get something like AVAST anti virus and run a scan to get rid of the virus.

In the future, never click on links sent through chat or on other statuses like that.

Check out pages like the Bulldog Estate and Facecrooks, these pages will warn you about clicking on links such as the one you clicked.

The sooner you run a scan, the better off you will be.

Instructions
  1. Download the application. The Application is available through the BlackBerry website (see Resources below). Have the download link sent to the email address you use on your BlackBerry. Once the email arrives in your BlackBerry inbox, click on the link provided and follow the prompts. You will need to type in your Facebook user name and password to complete the download process. Once the application is loaded you will see a row of icons at the top of the screen.
  2. Set your Facebook status. Use the track ball to click on the first icon (which looks like a person's silhouette with a phone) and update your own status and see your friends' recent status updates. It may take a minute to upload the status list so be patient.
  3. Add mobile photos. Use the track ball to click on the camera icon, and a browser box will pop up with a camera option and the pictures from your phone. If you pick the camera option it will take you into your camera, and from there you can take a picture. Once the picture is taken, press the "Menu" button. Select "Send to Facebook" from the pop-up menu and that photo will post to your Facebook account. You can give the picture a caption and "Tag" the photo before you upload it. If you want to post a picture you have already taken, you can scroll through the photos in the browser box. Select the picture, and it will give you the caption and tag options.
  4. See your friends. The next icon will bring up your friends list. If you highlight a friend's name and press the menu button, a menu will pop up allowing you to poke him, write on his wall, send a message and view his profile.
  5. Add friends, poke and write on walls. The next three icons are pretty self explanatory. The silhouette with the "+ 1" allows you to send friend invites. Just type in the email addresses and a message and click on "Invite." The poke action is next on the icon list; just type in your friend's name and click poke. The wall function is similar: Type in your friend's name and then it will let you type a message.
  6. Check and send mail. From here you can see your Facebook Inbox and compose messages. Only messages you have received since you added the application will show up. To send a message, type in the name of the recipient and an email box will pop up.
  7. Get your notifications. Each time a notification comes through, an alert will be sent to your phone. To access the alert, go to the Facebook icon on your menu. The notifications will be listed like your text messages and emails. You can act directly on some of the notifications from the listing. Other notifications require you to log in to the mobile or Web versions of Facebook to continue.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

I have 2 accounts on Facebook. I want to put them together, but I don't know how. Can you do that for me? Thank you very much, kind regards, Lydia van Zutphen.


Currently, it's not possible and there's no such feature or way to merge two or more facebook accounts. The only way we can do is suggest all the friends on your deleting facebook account to the one you are gonna keep and notify all your friends to accept the invitation or ask them to invite you (the other account you want to use) and delete the account after everything's done and have got all your other friends.. This is the only way we can do for now. I am not sure whether facebook will include such feature in the future or not.

To delete your facebook account permanently, you can use this link (click here), login to your deleting facebook account, open the link and click "Submit", confirm if you are asked and proceed forward, Notice that once it's done, it can't be undone, so be sure that you get what you need and do what is necessary before you click the "Submit" button.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

A friend on facebook invited me to a "delete facebook meeting" and I R.S.V.P. and my page went away. It is back but now I can't make comments on my friends photos.


don't ever click on any link even seems it was sent from a friend, it would be better to bookmark the correct website address or type it manually.
