Three Tips to Avoid Being Hacked on Facebook

Here are the 3 tips you need to use to prevent yourself from hackers:
Tip 1. For those who are as overwhelmed by passwords as I am, do create it with simple code. It will be easy for you to remember and tough for anyone else to crack. Simply create a sentence that's memorable and use the first letter for each word to create a strong password. For example: "I would love 2 dance with Hritik Roshan." That would be: Iwl2dwHR. Or, "I say I am 20 every year." IsIa20ey. Easy for me to remember -- not so easy for a computer program to figure out.
Tip2. Never type Facebook.com. That's right. if a user mistypes a URL, or if some kind of malware has been embedded in the browser, any URL can be maliciously redirected to a fraudulent website, including one that looks just like Facebook. Instead, use one of Facebook's IP address. This is the safest way to go directly to Facebook. Listed below are four which have been specifically assigned to Facebook.
66.220.149.11
66.220.158.11
69.171.224.37
69.171.242.11
Place one of the IP addresses in the box on your browser (where the URL is supposed to go) and hit "Enter" or "Return." The browser will take you to the real Facebook page, because it's going to the IP directly. You'll notice that when you get to the Facebook home page, your URL will magically display "www.facebook.com". According to any tech guru, this is the way people should surf the web. If everyone typed an IP address, instead of the URL, there would be far less successful phishing expeditions going on. That is, until the bad guys figure out new work-arounds.
Tip 3. You should think "S for Security" and get in the habit of typing:
https://www.domainname.com 
instead of 
http://www.domainname.com
That extra "s" forces your web browser to use SSL or Secure Socket Layer. This encrypts the data from your browser to the server you wish to access, reducing the chances of someone monitoring the data stream from your computer to the web. And, although SSL is an improvement, please note that Man-in-the-Middle (mitm) attacks are on the rise. These are specifically designed to compromise encryption -- a reminder that the bad guys are always devising new ways to usurp SSL.
