When a ‘Facecrook’ gets into your personal profile they can see your Friends lists, contact details, messages and more. And, they may potentially navigate to your Brand Page and cause havoc there as well if they’re feeling particularly destructive.

What to do if your facebook account gets hacked

Because you access and manage your Facebook Brand Page from your personal Facebook profile (and the same goes for all Administrators with access to your brand account), your Page may be at risk if you get hacked.

If this happens to you, or one of your employees with Brand Page access, don’t panic.

There are steps you can take to rectify the situation, and the results will be much better the faster you respond.
