Beware of the Facebook Account Hackers

I was checking my facebook profile last week when this message saying hackers finding new ways of hacking the accounts of the users caught my attention. So I checked my settings, reset them, changed the user id and password as per the specifications. I still wanted to find out more. So i just googled the words, facebook hacking on Google and was shocked to find out many links that provided ways to successfully hack peoples facebook accounts, boasting of a guaranteed access to other persons account.  Even to think that there are people who are very interested in viewing the details of the other person gives me a sickening feeling. And these people are most of the times on the friend’s list or acquaintance list of that person’s facebook account. This shows the level of intolerance growing among us.
