Question about Facebook Social Network
Hello and welcome to FixYa.
If you are logging in from a different computer (but on your local countrys/facebook network) you would have to set the computer's name to something specific and maybe answer a couple of security validation questions.
Also the same stands for if you are logging in from a different country on a different computer from your original one (more security questions/identity validations needed).
Furthermore, this can happen if you are using a proxy or anonymizer which hides your original location/internet settings etc. If you are using the same account from both behind the proxy and normal browser, it might cause some unusual activity (e.g: see yourself as logged in as a contact when you are logged in).
Additional login info or security validations on facebook are triggered by default to verify that your account has not been hacked and the user's identity accessing the account is the same, only the computer (and/or) country has changed.
If you are having problems logging in,please check your internet connection, scan your computer for viruses or malware, or do a general cleanup of your internet browser's cache by going to: Tools-->Internet Options--> Hit the "Delete" button on browsing history section (this is for IE8).
Regards from FixYa team.
