New Facebook message hoax spreading

Officials warn against Facebook hoax messages Officials warn against Facebook hoax messages

Still, what's unusual is that people are (perhaps absentmindedly) sharing a message that includes the words "I actually got another friend request from you", even when they received no such fraudulent friend request. "Please forward to all your contacts", the message reads.

Another 40 million user accounts were at risk from the security flaw before Facebook took steps to protect them, the company said last month. Only users aged 21 or younger could sign up for it.

Facebook account hacking has been a growing concern especially after it was revealed that a recent hack exposed the personal information of 50m users.

Users can also report any suspicious activity directly to Facebook by clicking on the question mark link in the top right corner of the home page.

An investigation into how the breach occurred is still ongoing, Facebook said in a release.

Facebook's third attempt to capture Snapchat's market, named Slingshot, too crashed.

Simply delete the message and whatever you do, do NOT forward it to friends.

Facebook did not respond to request for comment by press time, but it has said that the posts could be going viral due to fear. "And you didn't receive a request from the person you're forwarding it to", officials in Louisiana warned in a public service message on Facebook.

If you think you're a victim of cloning, you should check and see if there is a duplicate of your account. The bad news is: People are falling for yet another copy/paste hoax on Facebook, a website with a long history of spreading them. "It's insane. My friends are too", tweeted one user.
