I was shocked when I visited the profile page of one of my friends whom I haven't been in contact with for sometime because what I saw in her wall page were two message from me, and here is the message: "Hi man, fb is sending out laptops . This is really crazy, I just got the tracking code for my new phone. Be fast it's gone in 24 hours !" "Hey man, facebook is giving away free computers . That's truly crazy, They just gave me the tracking number for my new notebook!! Be quick it's gone in 48 hours ." Oh no, is someone accessing my Facebook Acoount? Have you experienced something like this in Facebook?

I heard a lot about facebook being hacked I think you need to change passwords periodically and change security questions for password reset

You've been Hacked!! I have getting IM's from a couple people on my friends list that are adverts and then as soon as they send the "message" it goes off line. You need to change your password etc.

Hi, I believe this is quite common for quite a few of us. Most of the time, someone has hacked into our account and then spam our friends profile page or send private message to them. Perhaps you can try changing your password to one that is stronger. Or try to change your password every 2-3 months.

Hello, I have seen the same thing going on with my account my kids account and my moms who hardly even gets on facebook. I would love to know how to stop this junk. I have changed my password several times and it still happens. I have contacted facebook but they say they cant help what others do. So if you find out how to stop let me know

I am a programmer and I can say that your account may not have been hacked, but rather an application that you are using is using your profile to post these spams. It's one reason why I don't add too many applications, especially when they're asking if they can post on my friends wall without my permission. Once you approve these kind of applications, they will use the permission you gave them to post spams on your friends' walls and profiles.

I have never had something like that happen to me on facebook, but yeah I think that the best thing that you can do would have to be to change your password before they do it because then you won't be able to get in. Yeah though changing password is good to do like every few months or so. That way you can be safe and your facebook account will not be hacked because their is a lot of hackers out there and you have to be careful and take precautions.I hope you find the solution because I would not want anyone looking through my mail omn facebook or any of that.

It's horror stories like this that have me totally turned off to Facebook. I just don't need that additional stress in my life.

hehe. seems like a virus.. it was frequent in most web sites.. but now i think they have taken necessary steps to prevent that kind of attacks.. when u see such a thing first thing you should do is complain the web site owners.. and also you should tell your friends about it too.. so no one will suspect you.. but dont worry most of the internet users no these things are virus..
