Somebody signed up for Facebook using my email. Disabling does not work [closed]

I do not have a Facebook account and I do not wish to sign up for one.

At the end of January, I started getting Arabic Facebook mails. Apparently somebody had signed up to Facebook using my Gmail address (with an additional ‘.’; think fo.o@bar.com rather than foo@bar.com, which still ends up being directed to me.)

At first I just ignored it because I assumed it was a phishing attempt, but it soon became clear that the mails were actually from Facebook.

I soon found the links at the bottom of the mails that would allow me to ‘disavow contact‘, prompting me to an English Facebook page asking me if I wanted to disable the account.

Didn’t sign up for Facebook with this account?

Someone recently tried to sign up for Facebook using [fo.o@bar.com]. If that wasn’t you, you can disable the account.

But whenever I try to do this, it says

Sorry, something went wrong.

We’re working on getting this fixed as soon as we can.

It has been a couple of weeks and it still does not work.

What can I do? I do not merely want to block mails from Facebook, I want this account not to be tied to my email address.

Best practices for Structured Data to make both Google and Facebook happy

I am the effective webmaster of a small corporation. I want to add a Corporation Structured Data object to our corporate site. I hope to accomplish three things by adding this Structured Data:

  1. Google’s Rich Cards will correctly display my company’s name, logo, etc.
  2. Facebook’s Rich Cards (does Facebook call them something else?) will correctly display my company’s name, logo, etc.
  3. Hopefully I’ll get slightly better SEO

I (generally) understand how to write structured data, but I don’t understand where to put my Corporation object in particular. I need Google/Facebook to understand that my company’s website is www.company.com/home. At the same time, I need Google/Facebook to understand that any URI within this domain (e.g. www.company.com/about) should use my company’s name, logo, etc. Where do I put my Corporation object to allow all pages in the domain to “belong to” my object, but only the homepage “owns” the object?

How to translate Facebook Messenger Chat Plugin on site via Google Tag Manager

i’ve been using this tip in order to add Facebook Messenger Chat Plugin on a website via Google Tag Manager, and it’s working (many thanks !) How to add the Facebook Messenger Customer Chat Plugin to your site using Google Tag Manager

but : when the visitor is not connected to his FB account, the welcome phrase is in english. The other translations managed through the FB app are working correctly when you are connected to FB.

i’m really not into code, but i changed this : js.src = “https://connect.facebook.net/**en_US/sdk.js”;enter image description here into that : js.src = “https://connect.facebook.net/fr_FR/sdk.js”; with no effect.

do you have a solution ?

have a nice day, A.

Can someone explain exactly how Facebook hacked and intercepted a text message?

I have an Android phone (Blackberry KEY2). I do not have the Facebook app installed on it. I did log onto Facebook once on it via the Chrome browser to confirm it worked.

The other day, I responded to my granddaughter’s request for a video chat via Facebook for kids using my laptop. Apparently, all the kids her age (5 yrs old) are chatting with each other because of staying at home because of coronavirus. While in messenger, I briefly noticed a text message from a friend whip by. It was probably on the Facebook page (I didn’t have anything else open and video chat was smaller than the other page, overlapping a good part of it).

After the video session, I couldn’t find the text message anywhere. I emailed him back and he said he did not send it over Facebook, he just sent a text from his cell phone. I checked my phone, and yes it was there as an unread text message.

I am now perplexed, I never associated my cell phone number with anything in Facebook. I hardly ever use Facebook. So how would Facebook know to intercept a SMS message and display it via my Facebook page on my laptop?

What’s more, I don’t have any other app on my laptop that is aware of my cell phone number, especially anything that was running.

I went through my profile on Facebook, and my cell number does not show up in it at all.

It looks to me like Facebook has somehow, surreptitiously associated my cell phone with my account. Is anyone else aware of anything like this? How do I get my cell phone number disassociated? If I do not use the Facebook app, what other data could Facebook steal from any device (phone or computer) via a browser? Or, could anyone point to where text messages are supposed to be found within Facebook via a browser?

Is it safe to play third-party games on Facebook?

While using FB, I observed many friends playing games such as “Which character you are from some particular web series or movie?” I think this can be dangerous because when I clicked on CLICK TO PLAY button of one of those games, I opened the privacy policy page of that product.ON this page, it is mentioned that some third parties advertisers associated with that product can collect our IP address.

Then, I searched on internet what someone can do with my ip address and got to know that our account can be hacked easily if someone knows our IP Address. So, I think it can be dangerous to play these games on FB. So, I want to ask the experts present here whether it is a matter of concern for all people who just click on and then play these games for fun?
