I have no idea if my computer has been hacked

Okay, I apologize in advance if it’s not a question for this sub but it seems to be that there are a lot of knowledgeable people here and I’m really desperate. Here I go:

Okay, so something weird has happened to me. Just this morning I accidentally discovered that I’ve been liking things on facebook that I didn’t liked, commented on comments of “anonymous users” and made my own comments, but it wasn’t me. It was like a 100 things in total probably. When I’m in the facebook log nothing happens after I click at those notifications about it, like I cannot open it. More than that, I’ve been spoted “active” on instagram while I really wasn’t and what’s weird is that my passwords are **very** secure and I am supposed to get a notification every time those accounts are used from the new device. While searching for a cause I’ve discovered that the first weird activity on my facebook account took place before I even turned on the computer yesterday. I’ve scanned my phone with kaspersky and malwarebytes and they’ve found nothing wrong with it. When I look at the devices that’s been logged to my accounts they are all mine. I have no idea what is going on, I did not downloaded anything suspicious, used only legit sites and I have two plugins(one from malwerebytes) on the browser for protection that I use and never had any malwere problems. Only thing I can think of is that yesterday there was this asssiment in my uni where we were supposed to create our own website and the guy who runs the class said we should do it in some weird hosting service and that it’s “legit and secure” but that took place after the first weird activity so I think it’s not that. I scanned my device with both malwerebytes and hitmanpro and they found nothing. Any ideas what is going on? I’m freaking out.

most likely some one has your password. change your password (you a password manager. i like bitwarden), set up 2 factor authentication, and remove all sessions. all are under settings & privacy / settings

Use 2FA, make sure that someone didn’t use your computer while you weren’t home or something. Change all of your passwords and make them insanely hard, store them in a password manager (bitwarden, dashlane, lastpass) and use a master password that is fairly complex. Most likely either someone is using your devices while you aren’t near them or sleeping, or you have been hacking and someone has remote access to your device and is able to go on your social media. Another possibility is someone has your password and is going on your social media, then before they log off they delete the login logs for their device. If you taken actions with all of those scenarios into account, I’m sure youll be fine
