Is it possible my facebook account has been hacked?

Strange goings on with my account, have had a school and place of work added to my personal details, neither of which I've ever heard of. Nobody knows my password. Anyone had something similar happen to them?

It's a logarithm assuming that you've been to the same schools and places of work as your friends if you've not added those details yourself. You've not been hacked.

Try changing your password. Someone hacked DH's account once and posted a pornographic picture as the profile pic! I know it wasn't him because he was out and it's not the sort of thing he would do anyway. I quickly logged in and changed the password to something so secure he had trouble remembering it until we changed it again! We never worked out if was random or some idiots idea of a joke. I was livid because the account is linked to our business Facebook page.

Cross posted. That's good, I didn't know Facebook set the school and place of work if you didn't.

I don't think it's a logarithm. The school and place of work are not any my friends have been to. Also had a couple of messages posted a while back that I didn't make. I'm wondering if I forgot to log out say at the library or some other place.

Oh dear, definitely try and change your password then.

If that doesn't work report it to Facebook.

Change your password. Could be a glitch but could be someone has been on your account.
