Quick note about Facebook

Despite the memes you may have seen, typing BFF on Facebook doesn’t prove your account is secure. There are certain words, phrases and abbreviations that Facebook highlights, and you get a little animation when you click on them.

One of those words is congrats, and another is xoxo.

The best way to ensure your Facebook account is secure is not to type certain keywords (which does nothing) but to enable two-factor authentication.
