facebook question

How would I know if someone got into my account? Can I look at when I last logged in?

I had posted a comment, it was just a qoute from a song, but it's gone. Deleted? Then I see that someone accepted my friend request. But I didn't send them one?

Is that wierd?

I'd suggest you change your password now.

1. Log into Facebook.
2. Go to Account (Top Right).
3. Go to Account Settings.
4. Go to Account Security.
5. Look under Account Activity to see who logged in recently as you.

Make sure you have HTTPS/SSL turned on and as suggested, change your password just to be on the safe side. Also ensure your Forgotten Password questions are up to date, not easy to guess and register your cell phone with Facebook in case you ever get locked out.

Sometimes if you post something as your status it won't show up later. However you might want to check your security settings and change them to your liking, along with changing your password. One time Facebook did alert me to a possible security breach because someone logged in as me from a place that they didn't recognize (it was way out of my state) and they asked me if I had anything to do with that incident. I said no and changed my password and security settings.

Noticed that too. Often it pops up then sometimes later.

Even sure it's better to be safe than sorry.

It does that with me too, but I don't think facebook randomly makes people friends with each other when no request was sent. I think farmpony's been hacked.

Oh, I missed the last sentence. Then I think it that way too.

Mine was hacked recently by someone 3,000 miles away. I also had to delete someone I didn't know. So, change your password and CHECK YOUR FRIENDS LIST, too :)

I wonder how they decide when to contact people about that stuff. My friend signed in to my account last night and she lives a few states away. Actually we were signed in at the same time, but I didn't get any sort of notification about it. Sorry that was a little off topic. I agree, you should change your password.
