Just a week ago, Facebook took another major hit and is under controversy yet again. This time, there was a major security breach by someone who exploited a feature. This led the person to be able to gain access to about 50 million Facebook accounts, making this the company’s largest security breach ever. However, not much is known besides this. The people or person who hacked the system are unknown, and it is also unknown what information the hackers wanted. There are a plethora of different things the hackers could have used the information for, but we do not know what. Facebook is making efforts to try and find the perpetrators. However, this hack is not the only news concerning Facebook. A few days ago, users were getting messages from friends saying that they should check their account for suspicious activity, and forward the message to their friends. The message suggests that the friend got another friend request from them even though they are already friends, implying that their account got cloned. This cloning is actually real, and it occurs when a person copies pictures and information from someone’s account and then sends friend requests to their Facebook friends. These friends will likely accept the friend request thinking that it is actually them, and then the person who cloned the account can get personal information from the friends. While this cloning does happen occasionally, the messages that were spread a few days ago were a hoax, but people believe the messages and forward it to their friends, which causes people to be spammed by this message. It is advisable to just ignore these messages if you receive them. It seems like Facebook can’t catch a break with so many controversies, but hopefully, they will be able to bounce back and keep a good record for a while.
