Today I saw a nude post on my Facebook wall saying inappropriate comments. I want to know who did this. Someone hacked my ID and posted that from my ID. How can I know that who had posted that post?

    You may never find out. Change your password immediately and notify Facebook before you get banned. Scan you computer for viruses and key loggers before you do anything else.

    You can see the person name on the top of the post. However if it is a face name, then mothering you can do. You can un follow  the person completely. Or by mistake, you send a friend request, then following button is automatically on and perhaps, his/ her friend posted a picture, that automatically reflect on your page. (just guess). Check all possibilities.

    You can't find out. At the very best, you might find out (1) some identifier such as a FaceBook user name or (2) an IP address.

    If you find an identifier, you won't know who used that identifier. If you find an address, you won't know who used the address. To go any farther beyond those, you'll either need some court to issue one or more warrants or need to perform illegal accesses.

    If you can afford to do so, a potentially expensive and qualified lawyer might provide some help.

    Most likely, your best course is to set a strong password for your FaceBook account (a different password from your current one) and clean up your FaceBook page. During the same time, make sure that the devices that you use to access FaceBook are all both cleaned of malware and re-secured.

    About the only one that can help is going to be Facebook. They have tools and access to data that the users do not. Report the problem to Facebook and change your password.

    One more thought, you can block the person who posted this one through your Facebook settings including Messenger, if you use. But catching the person is really a tedious job, while it requires more enhanced tools which people generally cannot effort.

    You can always click in the upper right of a post to opena bunch of options. At the bottom of that list is an option to report it to Facebook. This way they will get the information about the post they need to take action against the poster.
