No, your Facebook account hasn't been cloned

Are your Facebook feed and messages filled with warnings of cloned profiles? It's going viral

A warning about "another friend request" alerts Facebook users about potential account "cloning".

According to Snopes, the message is 'at worst a scam or hoax, and at best a once well-intentioned warning rendered useless by being uncritically re-posted all over Facebook'.

If you get the message, just delete it or ignore it. I had to do the people individually. "PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT A NEW friendship FROM ME AT THIS TIME". You did not send anyone a friend request.

This is not a matter of being hacked, but involves someone setting up a duplicate account with the same profile picture as the person being targeted, and then sending friend requests to their existing friends.

Then it tells you to "hold your finger on the message until the forward button appears...then hit forward...." They're a hoax. Do not believe or fall for them.

Facebook said in a statement, 'We've heard that some people are seeing posts or messages about accounts being cloned on Facebook.

However, they were undone by one of the goals of the season. "We showed so many weaknesses for this Premier League level". Aaron Ramsey , who came off the bench in the 60th minute, piled more misery on the opponents with a flawless backheel.

Facebook was not immediately available for comment.

Ignore the message that is going viral in FB Messenger right now.

Similarly, the "you've been hacked" hoax spread in the wake of some real news about Facebook security: that tens of millions of accounts were compromised by a massive hack.

'We haven't seen an increase in incoming reports of impersonation (cloned accounts),' a Facebook official said. There's an easy way to find out if you've been cloned: search for your name to see if someone else has opened an account pretending to be you.

Between fake news, Russian hacks, and data breaches, Facebook has certainly had its fair share of problems in the past couple of years.
