  • How-To: Protect Yourself On Facebook


    Photo: protect yourself on Facebook

    I recently noticed that my pal, who shall remain nameless, had disappeared from Facebook. Her profile was gone and I missed catching up on her news and photos. When I emailed and asked her why she had gone AWOL, she said she was taking a break because of phishing, spam and she went on to rant a little about Facebook (but I won’t share that here) and the fact that she doesn’t trust the network enough to post photos or any personal information there.

    It is understandable that she feels this way  – she’s not the only one. There has been a rash of attacks on Facebook recently: everything from unwanted Facebook wall posts (like the “OMG Roller Coaster Accident!” one currently making its rounds) and surveys (like the “win an iPad” Facebook survey scam). When this happens to you and someone hijacks your wall, you might feel violated and you will probably think twice about the content you share online (which is not necessarily a bad thing) but there are some precautions you can take that can help prevent this from happening.
