Abstract : When people talk about hacking and social networks, they're not referring to the common definition of hacking, which is using malicious code or backdoors in computer networks to damage systems or steal proprietary information. Hacking into social networks requires very little technical skill. It's much more of a psychological game using information on personal profiles to win a complete stranger's trust. Facebook offer privacy settings for their users but they don t the give the users a simple and easier way to edit them or use them.
