Thought My Facebook Acct. was Hacked

This early morning, I could not log in to my Facebook account. It is my daily routine before going to myLot, to check if I have important messages from my relatives. I repeated the process of logging in to no avail. I successfully made it after some attempts, but I was not able to open the messenger. Thinking that my account was hacked, I immediately changed the password as a precautionary measure. I was not able to check the progress because there was a power outage the whole day in our area. Then this evening after the electricity supply was restored, I heard on TV that facebook and other social media sites had a glitch. Am so glad it was restored. Do you still use Facebook or other social media sites to communicate with your relatives or friends?

It happened just during yesterday early morning; there was a note that it is undergoing some maintenance.

I have not used FB in 7 years. Far too time-consuming for me.

It is one that alleviates my boredom and when I want to get fresh current national issues from my friends; also messages from my relatives. But I don't spend so much time in it unless I m reading an interesting topic.

It is messenger which saves us the money instead of using texting on cellphones.

Yes, I still have facebook and messenger and actually still being used by most of us here. The only problem I had with FB the last few days is they keep showing the same notifications but messenger was just fine.

I am not using Instagram. They say FB has so many users that make it go slow. I don't know if it is true or just a hoax.

Maybe it's FB's problem; so many users that it could not easily fix such glitches.
