Question about Facebook Social Network

Unauthorized friend on Facebook

I saw a post on my profile that I had accepted a friend and did not accept this person. I didn't know the person. I have since blocked and reported him. One of my friends was also "hacked" by this person. How did this happen? What else can I do to prevent this from happening in the future? Is there something in my firewall settings or FB privacy settings I should change? Should I change my password? Should I scan my computer for viruses?

Thanks!

First things first you should change your password immediately, second, clean your browser once you are done doing FB, third yes, you can scan your computer for virus and spyware, this might be cause by a virus hidden on your system, Lastly, make sure that your secuirty program is always updated.

Facebook Privacy Settings


2 Loopholes in Facebook Privacy

1) It is very important to remember that whatever you post on other people's Walls are visible to all the friends of that person. So your Facebook profile may be viewable only to your friends, but if you post something scandalous on a friend's Wall, that is going to be visible to that friend's friends, even if you're not friends with that person.

2) Did you know that by default, your profile is viewable by friends in your NETWORK? This network may be regional (like San Francisco, CA), which makes it visible to a lot more people than you can imagine.

So make sure you know exactly who can see your profile, photos, and comments, before you post something you'll regret!31a160e.gif

I recently sent a friend request on facebook which was accepted by the other party but they do not show in my friend list nor can i view their profile?


Hi simpson_l,
Looks like one of a few things:
  • They added you and then deleted you from their friends
  • They added you and then "Blocked" your account
  • They have you set on a "Limited Profile"
  • They changed their name on Facebook

The person in question may have done one of these things by mistake. Do you know this person in real life? Ask them why you can't view their profile. Perhaps it will clear things up.
Hope this helps!

How do i cancel a face book friend request when i change my mind


If you haven't confirmed the person's request, just click on ignore instead of confirm so s/he won't be added to your friends list. But if you've already accepted his/her request, try this:

1. Login to your Facebook account
2. Locate the friend you want to delete. You can use the search in the upper left hand corner of the site
3. Once on the profile of the person you are looking to delete, scroll down to the bottom of the screen. On the bottom toolbar you will see a button that reads "Remove from Friends." Click the button and the person will no longer be able to receive your information.

I ignored a friend request and now need to accept the request, I have sent them one and they accepted but they are still not visible on my feeds and friend list, how do I find that ignored message and...


A block prevents specific people from viewing your profile. Any ties you currently have with the people you block will be broken (friendship connections, friend details, etc.). Your profile will not be visible to them and you will not appear in their search results or friend lists. Blocking is mutual, so they will also become invisible to you as well.

Keep in mind that blocking someone may not prevent all communications and interactions in third-party applications, and does not extend to elsewhere on the Internet.

Please note that removing a block will not restore a connection. If you block a friend and then remove that person from you Block List, you will need to send them a new friend request. http://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=12253
