    It seems that whatever it is, it is creating an album and posting there. It is not posting on the main profile page and so is being done secretly without your knowledge. Your friends all get tagged. How is this done?

    I strongly do not believe that the persons who accounts these post are being sent from were hacked. These persons may have unknownly given a malicious Facebook application access to their accounts.

    Has facebook been made aware of this? My father's page just started automated posting of this "My S**y IPad 3 photos" and within 4 hours, his page was shut down. Most likely as a result of people submitting the spam report on him. Is facebook aware that this is malicious hijacking and to not take action against the victim of hijacking by penalizing or suspending or deleting thier page? Is there any resolve after FB shuts you down to get your page back up?

    Please keep me posted if you have any further information on how to resolve this with Facebook without losing my Father's page. My email is *. Thank you kindly!

    If I get tagged in this scam did the person's Facebook page who tagged me in it get hacked?

    Giving them your personal information will not infect your computer with malwares but, they may use this information to spam and scam you.
