Protect Your Facebook Account from Hijacking

Facebook SSL

I realize that this is actually kind of old news (a week or so), but I still felt it was important enough to share with my readers that may not be aware of this feature, and the reason for needing it.

To be honest, I still maintain that particular opinion about MySpace, but that’s irrelevant.
