    Hi there, I reccently went on holiday and came back to find my 310 followers down to just 31? I also noticed that my rss feed to my facebook has somehow been hacked as it wasnt even linked and was posting losts of advertising in the feed next to my blog, is it possible to recover the followers via history? and advise me how to sort out the feed. At the moment ive just disabled the widget.
    Many thanks!

    Were you recently using Publicize through Facebook or Twitter? if so, the total will come back the next time you post.

    That isn’t actually from us. It’s Facebook in control of the ads and such.

    What you have been describing about your posts appear on Facebook is Publicize, so I’m sure that you’re using it. Please try reconnecting: http://en.support.wordpress.com/publicize/#reconnecting-facebook

    Oh, they were posting info about Jobs and such to your Wall on Facebook, and you can report them to Facebook from there.

    They would actually need to post to your blog to hijack your Publicize feed, which clearly hasn’t happened.
