But despite viral messages claiming otherwise, Facebook profiles are not being "cloned".
If you're concerned that your account may have been hacked or you want to ensure it is a secure as possible then here it what you need to know. You weren't. It's bogus.
The best thing for Facebook users to do is to simply ignore and delete the message.
The messages begin with "Hi...."

If you are an avid Facebook user, you've probably noticed that quite a few of the people on your friends' list have been posting that they've gotten hacked.
But not to fear, Facebook accounts are not really being cloned.
A good way to see if there is, in fact, a fake you out there trying to steal all your friends is to just do a search for your name.
This particular warning suggests the recipient's Facebook account has been targeted for such "cloning", as indicated by the sender's having received "a second friend request" from that account.
