What to do if your social media account has been hacked or hijacked | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
Almost everyone has had their social media accounts compromised at least once in the past, where their accounts automatically share scam links to friends and followers.

It’s hard to know what to do in these situations so we’ve prepared a primer on how you can deal with attacks if  your social media account were to be compromised.

 

Gust MEES's insight:
