Someone has hacked my Facebook account and locked me out. I have tried several measures and Facebook says my account is locked. It wants me to get help from my friends, but I don’t understand this part. Please help.

—  This is what you should be doing, head on to the Facebook website and click on the link ‘Forgot Password’. Now, Facebook will ask you to identify friends that you need help from in recovering your Facebook ID, follow the directions and select these friends. Then, call up those friends, and ask them to give you the secret code they got from Facebook. When you enter all these secret codes, your account will be fully restored. You may have to wait for 24 hours before this happens.

Do not message your friends by SMS or email. You should personally call them and share that your account is locked out and you need these codes.
