The warning message has gone viral and reads: "Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept Jayden K. Smith friend 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."

The question is - is the Jayden K Smith account a danger to your Facebook account?

It seems the warning message is nothing but a hoax and that Facebook users are being duped into sharing it with their contacts.
