Facebook has grown to become a massive social networking website. With numerous users,

Facebook is an ideal source of information of hackers. In this analysis and expose' of Facebook

because it infringes on the Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act. With many

vulnerabilities in Facebook security, users use anti-virus and anti-spyware software to defend

themselves from Facebook hackers.
