    Great Article dude. It is always important to secure our personal and professional social networking accounts from some suspicious users or hackers.

    I think Facebook and also other social networking sites should start 2 step verification log-in like Google. It is fantastic facility by Google.

    Only four? That article is also six months old already too.

    Here's another one for the Facebook fanatics which is a bit more comprehensive: Facebook Security Best Practices

    But why anybody bothers with the site at all is beyond me. I mean, who wants to read this kind of crap? We Know What you're Doing...

    You're the opening poster Ted.

    Maybe something went pear-shaped with the forum then.

    No, Click SSL found this old thread, which was pertinent when originally posted, but is now outdated, and brought it to the forefront again.
