Seven signs your social media account has been hacked

It is no gainsaying that social 

media is now an important feature in our lives. 

Almosteveryone uses it, from celebrities to inuencers, businesses, news platforms and marketers.
Some persons have even leveraged it to make money. So, it is important for your differentsocial media accounts to be secured. Regardless of this, since you are online, and thereare hackers prowling for accounts to hack, you have to be observant to know if youraccounts have been illegally accessed or not.

In line with this, here are seven signs your social media account has been hacked.

  • You are unable to log into your accounts

This is an obvious sign that hackers may have hijacked your account. You have triedseveral passwords but you 

are still locked out of your account. Even the change password option is not working.

 It must have been a very sophisticated hack. The only way you can have your account back is to contact Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat.

  • Status not updated by you

This is perhaps the simplest way to know if your social media account has been hacked.You will see tweets or posts you didn’t share appearing on your timeline. It may bepolitical or propagandist messages. You should immediately change your password.

  • Your number of followers signicantly Jumps

You only have 300 followers on 

either your Instagram or Twitter page. Then you suddenly notice that it jumped to like 2,000 or 3,000. It is strange right and you never followedanyone. In fact, Instagram or Twitter will not allow you to garner 2,000 or 3,000 followers a day. If this is the case, it is highly possible that your account has been hacked.

  • Someone logged into your account from an unusual location

Sometimes, you may add the wrong location for reasons best known to you. However, if you see a location you never added, it is an alert that someone is illegally accessing your account from that location.

You may want to do some check to be sure you were not theone that changed it.

  • You cannot find all your posts

All your posts for years have grown wings and own away. 

You cannot find them. 

You search and search but you still cannot find them.

You log in and log out but its still the same thing. It is advisable you change your password or you have to deactivate that account and open a new one.

  • Too many ‘spammy’ ads on your page

This mainly applies to Facebook. A seemingly interesting post is 

recommended to you to read. If you click it, you have opened the oodgate to spammy ads. 

That click will allow hackers to access your account.

  • Your cover image has been replaced

If your cover image has been replaced with a naked woman or any other nasty picture or photo, it means someone is attempting to frame you or in the process of usurping 

your account.  You should look out for this on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

I hope this helps!

Dangote Bags ‘Malaria No More’ Award (Photos & Video)

Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, has been named the 2017 recipient of the ‘Malaria No More’ Global Leadership Award.

The event which took place in New York in the United States, was attended by dignitaries from across the world, all committed to eradicating the scourge of malaria in the world.

The organisers say Mr Dangote was honored for his role in fighting the spread of the disease in Africa and Nigeria in particular, through his contributions to the ‘Saving One Million Lives in Nigeria’ initiative.

Although the event sought to address the malaria menace, it was still indeed an evening of relaxation.

There’ll be no double registration for 2019 elections – INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission has said that anyone who attempts to register twice in the ongoing continuous voter registration exercise will be caught.


According to the commission, the technology it is using for the exercise is capable of checking and flagging all attempts at double registration.

The Director of Information Technology Development, INEC, Chidi Nwafor, said this on Thursday in an exclusive interview.

He explained that attempts at double registration would be spotted an eliminated via a process called deduplication, which would be run at both state and national levels.

“What it does is that when you do two registrations, it matches them and strikes one of your registration off,” he said, adding that it did not matter whether an individual registered in two different states.

Nwafor also warned those who might be planning to register twice that attempting to do so is a criminal offence.

He said, “Whichever way you do it, before 2019 when we run the system you will be caught and you will not be allowed to vote. Also, people should know that it is a criminal offence and people have been in trouble because of that.”

Nwafor explained that the continuous voter registration exercise started by INEC on Thursday would not only allow those who have turned 18 since the last general elections to register, it would also give people who could not vote due to one issue or the other with their registration to resolve the problem.

He said, “This is what we call housekeeping, making sure that we start this process of doing the registration and solving the issues of the cards, making sure everybody has their cards before the 2019 elections.”

With new registrations ongoing, Nwafor said that about seven million voter cards have yet to be collected from the commission, while between 52 and 53 million people had collected cards and could vote in elections.

Value Of Nigeria’s Forest Cover Depletes To 5% – Institute

The Forestry Research Institute of Nigeria has confirmed that Nigeria’s forest cover is now depleted to 5% as against the expected minimum value of 25% which is recommended by global agencies such as the United Nations, (U.N).


The Executive Director of the Agency, Dr. Adesola Adepoju, stated this during a courtesy visit to the Government House in Benin City, the Edo State capital.

He, however, lauded the Edo State government for its contribution to forest development in the country.

“Edo State is still one of the stakeholders in the left-over forest cover of the country. Even when our forest cover has been depleted to less than 5% as against the expected minimum of 25%, according to the FAO, U.N and other conventions recommendations.”

Meanwhile, the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has disclosed plans of establishing forestry commission in the state, adding that his administration is set to clamp down on illegal logging activities.

“What we decided and what we have done is to take out forestry and create a forestry commission. And for us, it is urgent and important. We are not unaware of some activities that are going on and threatening our forest, and as a government, we are going to fight back and reclaim our forest”.

The visit is expected to open a window of opportunities for collaboration between the state government and the institute in areas of forest development and employment generation.
