Sidenote: reputational risk and lost trust - I am a regular user - I wasn't abusing any functionality. If I was to send 1000 messages a day to all my contact book - I would understand that loading old messages is not working.

Maybe I should report this case to FB security as my account is being hacked?

  • Do you know how to download all your information from FB? If so, do that first. Second, check which applications you've authorized to post to your FB wall and deauthorize as needed. It's probably that, not hacking.
