The latest Facebook hoax is causing concern and confusion among many users.

Users receive a message from a friend that says:

"Hi...I actually got another friend request from you yesterday...which I ignored so you may want to check your account. Hold your finger on the message until the forward button appears...then hit forward and all the people you want to forward too...I had to do the people individually.  Good Luck!"

Confused? You aren't the only one and there is a simple way you can avoid it. Tech Expert Burton Kelso said this is all a hoax and you can stop forwarding this latest warning to your friends about being hacked.

Kelso said the best thing you can do is just ignore it and delete it.

"Occasionally Facebook accounts are cloned and the hackers will send your friend's phishing emails to dupe them into clicking on a link that will infect them."

The best way to keep your Facebook account from getting cloned is to hide your friends list. As of now, ignore the ‘Got Another Friend Request from You’ message.
