    Never use any javascript code in url while login to any of your email or any other website account. It may be a cookie stealer script.

    Your Facebook ID is not a security risk and is simply a way for Facebook to sort users in its database.

    However, some things you CAN do to add security to your Facebook are:

    1: Enable HTTPS (Account - Settings - Account Security, Change - Enable "Secure Browsing https")

    2: Choose a strong password for Facebook. Your password should not be less than 8 characters and shouldn't be something guessable (pet names, birthdays, "password", etc) and run it through a password test: http://howsecureismypassword.net/

    3: Remove "friends" you don't talk to anymore, as they can pose a security risk.

    4: Remove unused Facebook apps (A study found that a lot of apps collect user information)

    5: Scan your computer with an anti-malware/anti-virus engine such as Malwarebytes to ensure spyware can't log your keystrokes (and therefor nabbing your Facebook credentials).
