Hi everyone, people are always asking if my Facebook page can be hijacked or not? and the answer is YES.
How Your Facebook Page can be Hijacked
Sophos a security company pointed out few days ago that anyone you give admin rights, can delete the page creator from the list of administrators. So be very careful about giving anyone the permission to be an administrator for your Facebook page.
While Sophos implies that Facebook would do well to add another security layer to the addition and deletion of page administrators, AllFacebook thinks that this is unnecessary. As current admins need to exercise good judgment before extending admin privileges to anyone else.
As I was following this topic from the beginning I have noticed that facebook changed the answer on the Facebook’s FAQ from “the original creator of the Page may never be removed by other Page admins.” which is WRONG as mentioned in the video embedded above to “Every admin has equal access to and the same abilities as the other admins for a Page.” which is now right.
In my point of view, the solution Facebook has done is good for now as they noticed us on Facebook’s FAQ about the abilities that the new admin can get, but we still hope that they develop more abilities for the page creator when it comes for having a new page admin. For example, me as page creator can give a limited abilities for the new admin which will be really awesome.
