It’s bad enough that my personal information and God knows what other details were compromised a couple of years or so ago along with tens of thousands, if not more, of other Facebook users. I deleted my account with Facebook back then. However, foolishly, a year later I decided to give Facebook the benefit of the doubt and another chance.
I created a whole new page which acquired almost a thousand likes, Got 5k followers, everything seemed to be going honky-dory until… Recently, I started getting comments from friends on this blog enquiring as to my messaging them through Facebook messenger. I never use social media messengers… Not even for family!
When I was told that my messages included scammer type material, promising all kinds of money and stuff like that. It became pretty clear to both myself and my blogging friends (Some whom have known me for years) that my account must have been hacked. If a social media giant like Facebook cannot protect its users after the last scandal… I can’t take a chance on allowing a third strike. Not with a company so large and influential and one that should have the resources to protect their clients.
