3. Install netviewer on the target computer

4. The old trick, e-mail 

If the victim network is heavily barricaded with a firewall, use the old technique by emailing them fake very similar link to facebook compulsory change password page or warning them on account login confirmation. Some fools will still fall for this trick

This trick needs you to sit near the network WAN connection physically. Whenever the victim login to their facebook account, pull out the cable. Then reconnect the cable after a while. They will freak out and then show them your cached facebook page and offer them to use your computer. Then again , use google chrome or keylogger technique

6. Develop a new software called facebook account stealer

Develop a new software which prompt the users to login and then display a mimic act of monitoring and searching for facebook account then give it an endless loop to make it a not responding programs and force close the software. Give it to the victim as a trial.
