  • How to tell if your Facebook has been hacked (and what to do) - Social Network [ VIDEO ] | Technology

    Here's a simple way to see if there is someone messing with your Facebook account.

    There are several different ways hackers use a breached Facebook account. Automatic logins through Facebook allow hackers access to many different site accounts once they've taken over your Facebook. Spammers also hack Facebook accounts to gain access to your following. From your profile, a hacker can additionally gather a lot of personal information about you that can be used to steal your identity.

    How to check if you've been hacked

    If you worry that your account has been hacked, there is a simple way to check. Go to the arrow in the upper right-hand corner of your Facebook page and click on it. In the menu, select Settings. A new menu will pop up. Choose Security and then Where You're Logged In.

    A list of all of the devices that you've logged into and their locations will pop up. If there is a login you don't recognize, chances are you may have been hacked. If you see anything that isn't you, click End Activity on the right side of the log to end the session. The hacker will be logged out, temporarily.

  • How to post 360-degree photos to Facebook | Technology

    Sharing regular photos with your Facebook friends is a thing of the past -- the future revolves around interactive pics.

    By now, you've undoubtedly come across an interactive photo whilst browsing your Facebook feed. Such photos instruct you to hold your phone up and move it around to view different parts of the photo.

    It's a fun way of viewing so-called 360-degree photos. And would make one believe you need fancy, or expensive equipment to make it happen. The truth is, however, you don't need a special camera or even a 360-degree photo app in order to upload your own interactive picture.

  • Shares in UK chip designer Imagination Technologies have plunged more than 60% after Apple said it would end a deal to use its products | Technology

    The US company uses the UK firm's chip technology in its iPhones, iPads, and iPods under a licensing agreement.

    Apple's royalty payments account for about half Imagination's revenues.

    Shares fell 165p to 103p, valuing the company at about £250m - down from about £765m before the announcement was made on Monday morning.

    Imagination said Apple, its largest customer, would stop using its products in "15 months to two years".

    Apple is developing its own technology, but Imagination said this would be difficult without infringing patents.

    Apple has told Imagination that it is "working on a separate, independent graphics design in order to control its products and will be reducing its future reliance on Imagination's technology".

    Imagination, like the UK's ARM Holdings, is at the forefront of computer chip technology globally. ARM was sold last year to Japan's Softbank, a deal criticised as selling out of the UK's winners.

    The Financial Times reported last year that Apple, which owns 8% of the UK company, had held talks about buying Imagination.

  • The Simpsons Predicted a Donald Trump Presidency 16 Years Ago | World News

    While Donald Trump's election victory may feel like it came out of left field for some citizens, The Simpsons predicted his road to the White House 16 years ago. 

    In a 2000 episode called "Bart to the Future," Bart has a reverie of his life as a 40-year-old adult. In the vision, his sister Lisa Simpson is the country's first "straight female" president. 

    In one scene, Bart visits her in the Oval Office where she's conducting a meeting about the country's current economic status. 

    "As you know, we've inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump," she tells her staff as they realize the economy is in a complete decline. "The country is broke! How could that be?" she adds before Bart storms through the office doors.

    In 2015, the longtime hit Fox series took Trump to task again for the 2015 episode "Trumptastic Voyage" as it mirrored the real-life presidential campaign he had launched at the time. On Tuesday night, Trump officially became the 45th president elect of the United States. 

    In March, writer Dan Greaney addressed the brief foreboding quip. 

    "It was a warning to America," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "And that just seemed like the logical last stop before hitting bottom. It was pitched because it was consistent with the vision of America going insane." 

    "The Simpsons has always kind of embraced the over-the-top side of American culture," he added. "[Trump] is just the fulfillment of that."
