    FB has changed. Take a look at your URL. If you see "http" or just "www" instead of "https" you DO NOT have a secure session & can be hacked. Go to Account Settings - Account Security - click Change. Check box (secure browsing), click Save. FB has automatically set it on the non-secure setting!

    I was already on the secure setting. However, if you want to view or access any of the games/applications, etc, you will have to go back to the 'unsecure' setting. FB gives you this option anyway. Once you have finished with said games/apps etc, log out and log back in again. You will then be back on the 'secure' setting.

    Facebook? Twitter? Is it all really necessary?

    I'm not a luddite, honest, it's just that in my own life I've never seen the need therefore can't see the point. Each to his/her own of course :)

    IIRC... When FB changed things they offered me the opportunity to change to the secure site, I clicked OK of course :)

    Thanks for posting though, reminded me to check it's still secure... 'cause you never know with FB!!!
