Here’s a scenario that seems to come up a lot…
Your friends are getting friend requests from you even though they are already on your friend’s list. The good news here is that you are not hacked. The bad news, someone pretends to be you and sends out friend requests on Facebook.
Don’t worry, you are not hacked. If you were hacked they wouldn’t need to send friend requests to any of your friends because they would already have access to all your friends. They are sending friend requests because they created a new account using your name and picture. Facebook then suggests new friends based on what they think is an association with you. You are not a hacking victim but a victim of identity theft.
Don’t accept friend requests from people already on your list.
Here are some helpful links from Facebook:
