    Has anyone here ever had their Facebook account compromised/hacked?

    I clicked on a link posted by one of my FB friends. It was something like "This is so funny." As soon as I clicked it, I was like, "Uh oh". Nothing happened, but now I am nervous. I logged out of FB, logged back in, and changed my password. Then I restarted my computer.

    Has this happened to anyone? Should I be concerned, and is there anything else you would suggest I do?

    TIA

    It hasn't happened to me, but I have heard of it happening. If nothing has happened recently, you're probably ok. Just make sure you don't have too much information of the type that can lead to identity theft availble on your profile.

    You might want to let your friend know you got a weird link from them, so the friend can investigate for him/herself too.
