Would you rather someone steal your cell phone or your Facebook?
You know when you read a friend’s status update on Facebook and the post seems completely out of character? It might be the burliest guy you know talking about how much he likes butterflies and unicorns. It doesn’t take long to figure out that someone (usually a family member or co-worker) has hijacked their page.
The other day I was getting random texts from a buddy of mine. He asked me for $500 so he could buy “… a new pair of Nike shoes and an XBOX 360.” After a while, I figured out that his 10-year-old son had his cell phone and was busy asking all of his contacts to borrow money. Imagine how stupid I felt when I warned my friend about his phone hijacking by calling him… on his CELL PHONE. Slaps forehead.
If you had to choose, would you rather have someone get a hold of your phone and texting all your contacts or have someone take over your Facebook account?
