  1. … and is there a connection between the question of whether Facebook has been hacked and the large number of Facebook users who’ve had their accounts disabled recently?

    Great podcasts as always Cam.

    Kind regards

  2. Dunno Alex. The stuff about being hacked has been taken out of the Wiki entry and Facebook seems to have been fine ever since. Where did you hear people have had their accounts disabled?

  3. Hi Cameron.

    Quite a few links out there to people having their accounts disabled. I’ve just had mine disabled for no reason. I’ve *never* had anything like this happen in all the years of using the web.

    One link to a blog posting about having accounts disabled is

    … check out the comment lower down where people are having accounts disabled *not* for over-posting, but for no reason at all.

    Have a great one and kind regards as always.
