Now this is something cool that you can do while having a chat on Facebook. All you need to do is place the username or profile Id of the user within double brackets. So let’s say if the username is something like MyUsername then you need to type in [[MyUsername]].

Here are couple of tips that would help your Facebook from being hacked.
- Strong Passwords: Your password is the main source of access to your account. So keep it strong. Use combination of lower and upper case characters, numbers and special characters.
- Tough “secret answer”: Birthdays and pets names can be easily guessed. Hence, they are not the best secret answers.
- Run a virus scan: Update your Antivirus virus definitions before you run a scan and make sure your system doesn’t have any Viruses and Malwares.
- Enable Secure Browsing in Facebook: This would help you browse Facebook on a secure connection. You can find this setting under Account Settings -> Security -> Secure Browsing.
- Enable Login Notifications: This would help you to know if your account is being accessed by someone else from a different machine or location. You can find this setting under Account Settings -> Security -> Login Notifications.
- Avoid Facebook Apps you are unfamiliar with.
- Keep your profile information private: Keeping your profile information private would avoid hackers getting your details like birthdays and so on. This information can in turn be used to gain access to other services like email or twitter. Also, keep your personal pictures and videos private so that they are not misused.
- Don’t select “Keep me logged in” option: Make sure the “Keep me logged in” option is not selected when you access Facebook from a public computer like a cyber cafe.
- Check the Facebook URL: Once the Facebook home page is loaded. Make sure you check the URL before logging in. Viruses and Malwares can redirect you to a fake website whose look and feel are almost identical as Facebook. Use https://www.facebook.com/ instead of http, this would help you avoid landing on a Phishing site.
- Log out once you’re done: Once you’re done using Facebook, make sure you “Log Out” and not just close the browser window.
Guys, I just read that Facebook tracks your online activity even after you log out. Technically what happens under the hood is that, the cookie‘s that have been created when you visit Facebook are picked up by Facebook widgets (Facebook Like button, or Share button, or any other widget or plugin) that are available on other websites. Your profile information available in the cookie along with the website details that you are visiting are then send to Facebook.
Now, if Facebook is doing this, there is no reason why the others like Google shouldn’t do this.
The only way you can get rid of this is:
- Clear your browser cookies as soon as you logout of Facebook. Works only if Facebook is the only site you are visiting in that particular browser. Open other websites in a different browser if you have to.
- Use “Private browsing” mode in your browser whenever you visit Facebook.
Hmmm…I’m now tempted to write an app to sort out this issue.
