As a heads-up for anyone who still comes to this blog on a regular basis.  If you have a Facebook account, you should know the following:

FB changed & failed to let us know about it AGAIN.

FaceBook has automatically set your browsing security to a the non-secure setting!

Go onto your facebook and check your URL address (the top box on your screen).  If you see "http" intsead of "https" you DO NOT have a secure session and you can be HACKED.

 

How to fix this idiocy:

Go to Account Settings –> Account Security –> click Change.  Check the secure browsing box, and click Save.  Check your URL after this and check to make sure it works. 

 

As a point of practice, I recommend anyone who reads this and uses facebook to, from now on, always check the URL when they login to fb.  If the URL says https then you’re good to do your fb thing.  However, if it’s http, then repeat the above instructions, log off and try again.

Pass this on; blog about it; make it your fb status; start a chain of annoyance.  That’s why we have the freedom of the internet; to protest stupidity that puts us all at digital risk.
