Chad told me a friend of his knows a student whose Facebook account was hacked and boy, did they have a good time. They sent rank messages to all his Facebook friends suggesting he wanted to do things he didn't really want to do... know what I mean?Now, so that you can share in the fun, I have prepared a list of five sure fire ways to assure that your account will be hacked. Oh, these will also take care of your bank account.

Here we go:

1. Be sure and use a simple password

Use something like your name and a couple of numbers. Or, even better use “password”. This will make it much easier for someone to hack your account and wreak havoc in your life.

2. Give your birthday in the profile

Day-Month-Year – that’ll help identity thieves, who can use it to obtain more information about you and potentially gain access to your bank or credit card accounts.

3. Post the names and pictures of your children

You don’t really want to keep them anymore anyway.

4. Whenever you have left home, be sure and post that information right away

It’s so much better than leaving the door open with a neon sign flashing, “Come on in--help yourself”.

5. Encourage the kids to join Facebook and don’t supervise them

Kids have to be 13 to be on Facebook, but who’s gonna catch you—the Facebook Police?? Facebooking is much more preferable than playing with their friends, studying or helping around the house.
