    I can't figure it out. I am immune to phishing techniques. I change PWs often. I dont download apps. Yet one day I logged into my account and while I was logged in, someone was posting from my account, a free computer CPA offer to all my friends walls. I deleted them as they were going up, but damn.. its definately pretty slick.

    how do they do that??

    Yes, there are plenty of apps out there that will do this. If you have visited any app in the last few weeks and clicked 'allow' then that is most likely your culprit.

    If its an APP just go to you privacy settings and disallow all the apps you don't use.

    many new face book apps that you might have authorized will allow them to get your user name and password.. that is possibly what happened..
