Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

A person on Facebook I don't know and who is certainly not a friend sent me an email in my personal Yahoo! account commenting on my Profile Picture! While the comment was nice, I have my privacy setting to preclude such action. I am new to Facebook and am very upset with this matter. I am thinking of ending my Facebook account!!!

Your account has been discovered by someone to not have all the security activated and they have extracted all the information they were able out of it.
You can either go into the setting and put everything on private (but this is like closing the barn doors after the horses have bolted) or, best, delete the account. You can wait for 3 months then use another e-mail address to create another account if you really need it.

Why I can't open my Facebook page I was on it earlier and now I can't get back on my Facebook profile page etc.


Hmm... someone might have hacked your account. Try checking your inbox from the email provider your Facebook account is associated with. For example, if your email address has a domain name of yahoo.com, then log in to Yahoo, check your inbox. Facebook sends you an email right away if your Facebook account was hacked. The email they send informs you that your email address was replaced with a new one. Then it asks you if that is your own doing, you can just ignore it. But since you suspect someone is using your account, then that person might have replaced your email address with his. If that is the case, then there's an option in that email Facebook sent you to 'let them know' or 'secure your account'. Click on it. If you're successful, you should be able to get hold of your account back. And Facebook system will even prompt you to change your password.

Moral of the story? You should not give any of your email addresses to anyone. Not even to family members, relatives or friends. If the computer you're using is also used by other people and there are no separate user accounts for each [meaning everyone can log into that computer as administrator then one safety tip is to NOT save your password in Mozilla Firefox. If you do and another person who is Internet savvy clicked on the browser's Tools menu [Tools>Options>Security>Saved Passwords] when you're away, then that person can hack your account/s. If you're the owner of the computer and you're sharing it with other people, better create a guest account or user accounts for each person who uses your computer, but make sure you're the administrator of your own computer and that each of you has his/her own password when logging on to the computer.

How to Insert Friends names in Status updates and comments?


You can update your status in Facebook from Home and Profile page. If you want to include name of person whom you want to convey the message, then type @ first,followed by the name of person you want to include. You can get the names of your friends in dropdown that appears once you start punching in letters. You can include friends in comments also by using @.<br /><br />When you include your friend in status update via @, then those friends will see it in their wall,but nobody can comment on that post in your friend's wall.One have to click 'View Post' to open the post and then can comment on that same post. But friends can comment on the same wall post in your profile.<br /><br />You would get notifications like ' &lt;your friend name&gt; mentioned you in a comment/wall post'.<br />

I was defrauded by a person with a Yahoo account,how do I find out where they live so I can have them arrested?


I checked the email address and it still exists. The problem is that anybody can make a Yahoo account with a false name, address, telephone number, and cell phone number. Yahoo doesn\'t check this. If this is a real person\'s name you can print out the emails and go to your local police station. If your computer is a laptop, bring that as well. NEVER send money to somebody whom you don\'t know. I just checked and she has Twitter and Facebook accounts. Tell that to the police as well. She is listed in English and Spanish.



That\'s that I can get, but the police can, but may not, subpoena Facebook for her information. There\'s a chance that he/she really was dumb enough to give valid information.

How to unblock my facebook


When you are blocked by someone on Facebook, there are few options to unblock yourself. In fact, unless the person unblocks you on their own, you can't become unblocked on your own.
There is one thing that you can do, that requires setting up a new Facebook account.
You can use your same name, but you must sign up with a different email address.
Once the new account is set up, you can proceed to contact the person who blocked you.
Keep in mind that the person may see your online attempts to contact her as harassment and may block your second account as well.

Go to facebook.com and fill in the "Sign Up" section.
Enter an alternative email address that isn't attached to an existing Facebook account in the "Your Email" and "Re-enter Email" fields.
Click the "Sign Up" button once.
Enter the Captcha security code in the text box and click the "Sign Up" button a second time.

Complete the Facebook account registration and find friends, add profile information and upload a profile picture.
These items are optional and you may add them at a later time.
Click the "Save & Continue" button to finish.
Go to your alternative email account and retrieve the Facebook confirmation message.
You will need to click a link in that email before your new Facebook account becomes active. Once the account is active, you can contact the person who blocked your other account.

Hi,

Sounds like someone has hacked your password. Change it asap to something complicated. Make sure you don't give your password to any friends or family members.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My facebook name is jadolfjohann@yahoo.co.uk. I can not get it to se my frends on it.


I looked at your profile in facebook and it says you don't have any friend there. You need to add your friends first so they can be in your friend list.

Login into your facebook account. On the upper part of your profile there is a search box. Type your friend's name or email address and begin searching for them. Once you found them send a friend request.

Hope this helped! =)

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!
