Well, this is a heckuva thing to post to Bike Noob — but my Facebook account was hacked by someone who tried to co-opt it for a phishing scam. Facebook has disabled my account. When I try to reclaim it, it prompts me to set a new password. I’ve done that four times today. I’m running out of password ideas! Each time, it circles me back to the Reset Password page without letting me continue to reclaim my account.
Facebook’s “Help” page is completely automated, so I can’t find any help from them for my situation.
I will continue to post on Twitter, but not from the Bike Noob Facebook fan page. It looks like that page will be inactive for the foreseeable future. My five most recent tweets will continue to display in the right column of this blog.
I do have a Google+ account, which I might actually have to start using now. Unless I decide that I am perfectly content to live without Facebook. Which I might be.
Have any of you run into this kind of problem with Facebook? Any ideas how I can fix it without having to change my password again? How many of you have deactivated or deleted your Facebook accounts? What are the pros and cons of that?
