Facebook Security Flaw Hijack Fan Pages

A Facebook security flaw or a misunderstanding, lets Page administrators boot original Page creators from admin status, effectively enabling new admins to hijack Pages and if the creator of a Facebook Page sets someone else as an administrator, they should have the same administrative rights as them. Facebook Page creators thus need to be weary of recruiting additional administrators to help them manage a growing number of fans and extra administrators can have malicious plans for taking over your Facebook Page……………….

If you create a Facebook Page and add an administrator to it, you should know that this individual can remove you as an administrator from your own Page and also there is a growing problem in the world of Facebook Pages. Facebook pages are an important part of many business’s marketing activities. Brands such as Coca-Cola, Victoria’s Secret and Starbucks have millions of Facebook fans signed-up to their pages. Even more impressively, Lady Gaga has a jaw-dropping 43 million fans on the social network.. and rising. So it’s clear that Facebook pages are an enormously effective way for firms and celebrities to promote themselves and raise brand awareness There’s very little cost for a potentially huge amount of publicity. Facebook pages are run by administrators. Anyone can create a Facebook page, and if your page proves popular you might choose to recruit some additional co-administrators to help you run it. That’s where you need to be very careful, because one of your fellow administrators could hijack the page you have been working on and remove your admin rights. Any page administrator can remove the original administrator of a Facebook page and there are two scenarios here; one is that you have a trusted friend or colleague who you ask to help you administer a Facebook page. Even if they have the best intentions, their Facebook account may get compromised giving a stranger the chance to hijack the Facebook page you created. The other possibility is that you gave a stranger admin access to your Facebook page.
