I have had a few conversations with friends about data security and access breaches to their Facebook accounts. It seems that a lot of people are worried about it but have no clue as to what to do to make sure they have an upper hand, if it was the case, if your accounts got hacked. There are things any non techie human can do from the get-go to minimize risks.
