Recently we had a report from Fe, her Facebook account was hacked and her identity stolen. In 2017 this is becoming more common and it’s important we all take Facebook security seriously.
Listen to Fe tell us what happened to her, then spend just five minutes and check your own Facebook security settings.
You can get back on track by following the tips outlined in the below links:

- If your Twitter account has been hijacked: Twitter information on how to re-secure your page.
Remember to SHARE this with your friends and family to keep them safe too.
