Raise your hand if you got a warning on Sunday about Jayden K Smith?

It read something like:

Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept Jayden K. Smith friendship request. He is a hacker and has the system connected to your Facebook account. If one of your contacts accepts it, you will also be hacked, so make sure that all your friends know it. Thanks. Forwarded as received. 

 According to Snopes.com, which exists to debunk internet rumors, says this is one of many false hacker warnings.

From Snopes:

Variants of these messages are circulated endlessly, with different names swapped in and out as various pranksters decide to play jokes on people they know by inserting their acquaintances’ names and addresses into the warning in place of the existing information.

 

Don’t believe Snopes for whatever reason?  That’s cool uncle Terry, because ThatsNonsense.com also says it’s fake AND takes it a step further by letting you know it’s not really a thing that can happen… the whole, accepting a friend who then hacks your account.

From thatsnonsense.com:

And as we have stated a number of times, such warnings make little sense. You cannot be “hacked” just for accepting a friend requests, and if such warnings were true, why wouldn’t Facebook remove such offending accounts before such warnings had a chance to go viral?

Of course, as with any article you’ll read, it’s not smart to add anyone as a friend that you don’t know, but it’s usually more for them finding out too much personal info about you and using it later in identity theft. Which by the way, is totally different from hacking into your computer from a friend request.

Ok, now internet on!
