We all know the symptoms: your inbox is flooded with spam, your profile picture is an eye-watering Photoshop mishap, your Facebook feed is littered with comments from people who claim to be victims of the abuse.
But what if you’ve actually been targeted?
What if you’re the victim of exploitation abuse?
Well, you can find out for yourself, because it’s a subject I’ve covered before.
If you’re in this for the stories, I’ll show you how.
But first, let’s understand the difference between exploit and abuse.
Exploitation means someone has stolen your credit card information and you have no idea who’s doing it.
Abuse means someone is exploiting your vulnerability and exploiting you for their own gain.
So, first, what is exploit abuse?
Exploitations are the type of activity that can be done by someone without your knowledge.
For example, someone may be able to trick you into clicking a link in a blog post or on a Facebook status update that asks you to download a particular file, or perhaps trick you to visit a certain website.
Or, someone can steal your information by sending a malicious email or a virus.
If someone uses an exploit to gain access to your account, that is abuse.
You can report exploitation abuse online by visiting this page: https://www.cracked.com/reports/abuse-exploits.
But let’s start with an example.
If a blogger, using a popular photo editor, had used a script to upload a new photo to their Facebook page, then posted it to their profile, it would be an abuse.
However, if they used a tool that automatically generates fake photos for people to upload to Facebook, then post them to their newsfeed, it’s an exploit.
Exploit Abuse Definition Exploits are those activities that do not fall into any of the above categories.
A popular photo editing tool that can upload photos to Facebook can be an exploit because it uses a script that generates fake images for people and then posts them to Facebook.
Facebook does not require photo editors to be registered and that is the only thing they need to register for.
However the tool can be used for many other activities, such as posting links to other people’s pages that don’t belong to them, or posting links on Facebook that you’ve never seen before.
So what do you do if you see a photo on your Facebook page that you think is fake?
If the person in question is not the person you thought it was, you might be able contact them to make a complaint.
If the photo is not your friend, but rather someone else’s, it may not be an issue, but it is worth checking.
You may need to follow up with the person who posted the photo with them to find out more.
And if they haven’t responded, there’s a good chance the photo isn’t yours.
It’s possible that the person is lying to you.
So how do you know when someone is using exploit abuse to get a hold of your personal information?
It’s a tricky thing to say, but there are some things you can do to help.
Here are some ways to look for abuse.
If it appears to be spam or other abuse, it probably isn’t.
If your account is being used for a purpose other than legitimate business, you should take steps to protect yourself.
Here’s how: Update your social media settings.
If an activity appears to you as spam or a malicious content, it might be spam.
If so, you need to disable the activity or it might still be there.
The best way to do this is by going to Facebook and scrolling through the top posts.
You’ll notice that many of them are fake news and other content that looks like it was generated by spam bots.
If this happens, the activity is probably a scam.

Check the privacy settings.
You should check your privacy settings for the activity and verify that it isn’t an exploit, because this could be a sign that you’re being used by an exploit or abuse victim.
If there’s any indication that your privacy is being breached, you could report it to Facebook by visiting the “report” link at the bottom of every post.
Report Abuse If the activity appears legit and not an exploit that has been used to steal your identity, you may be one of the victims of exploitation.
If that’s the case, then you’ll need to contact Facebook about the activity.
You could report the activity to Facebook for the following reasons: if the activity involves someone you know (such as a friend or family member), they should contact Facebook and report the person.
if the person was the one who posted your photo, you’ll want to report it, as well.
Report abuse to Facebook using the same mechanism you would if you were the victim.
Here, the person will need to tell you about the situation.
Facebook will ask you to verify
