The best thing to do is to contact Facebook asap and explain to them the situation. This happens all day long with these social networking sites. They have procedures in place to restore the accounts back to the rightful owners. They'll make you jump through some hoops though to verify that its actually yours.

Maybe since it does happen so often they are backed up with reports of it. It won't hurt to try contacting them again. If you receive no response the second time around then it will be safe to assume that they don't care.

they definantly dont give a shit. Soooooo many people i know got their accounts hacked. The people who hack the accounts use the hacked accounts for advertising purposes. They post stuff and message people about losing weight and stuff like that

Its really a shame that these social networking sites don't care, and that they're so heavily targeted.

Probably because people know that since a lot of people visit them its a good place for free advertisement. Myspace went to pure hell because of that.

Exactly, and its probably only a matter of time until Facebook follows suit. Then the next big social networking thing will come around and will eventually face the same demise as all the rest before it. its a never ending cycle.

Its all because people are trying to make a quick buck. Its at the cost of ruining a lot of things on the Internet. The people who do it seemingly don't care about any of that as long as they make money. Even if its only a dollar.

I wish a site could sustain itself with out having to resort to advertisements, but even then they would have to probably charge a monthly fee.

Websites are expensive to run in general and the more popular one is the more it costs. Then like everything else the prices continually go up. We'll eventually have to move to our own dedicated server and thats going to cost in the area of $200 a month. So a couple ads here and there to try and offset some of the cost are a good thing. Its when sites get greedy or become too large for their own good and become saturated with them is when the problem starts.

facebook was going to charge a monthly fee. then there was that big petition of people who said they would leave if there was a monthly fee. so facebook decided not to do it and then there became more adviretisements

But that doesn't generate anywhere close to the amount that Ads do.
