WARNING: Facebook Pages Can Get Hijacked (Or Not!)

Be very careful about giving anyone administrator privileges for your Facebook page.

Be very careful about giving anyone administrator privileges for your Facebook page.

So warns Sophos. The security company pointed out today that anyone you give admin rights to could delete the page creator from the list of administrators.

We can attest to the veracity of this: after the founder of AllFacebook moved on to greener pastures, we deleted him from the list of administrators.

While Sophos implies that Facebook would do well to add another security layer to the addition and deletion of page administrators, we think that’s unnecessary. Current admins need to exercise good judgment before extending admin privileges to anyone else, and also think carefully before deleting anyone.

We’re curious to know what you think about this so-called exploit. Watch the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section beneath this post.
