    Ok so on facebook I had a hacker. From Egypt apparently. I temporarily locked my account, and changed password. Now every time I log in to it, in the background there is a plain white screen, and it says a couple things in bigger letters vertically. (find friends, friend requests, see unread messages, etc.) Then closer to the bottom there is a tiny picture of me, next to it it says home, profile, etc. There is even a place to search, though its not in the usual place.But you try to search and NOTHING happens. You try to click on one of the tabs, (home for example) and… yep you guessed it. Nothing happens. This has been happening for a few days, and I’m really tired of it. I tried shutting it down, and trying again, and even just logging out and logging in. I was thinking of making a new account, but I had a ton of friends 🙁 please help!
