So, for the past year at least, I have been receiving messages from people that I am connected to on Facebook. The messages will read as follows and they are from Facebook:

John Smith (pseudonym) has sent you a message

So once in a while, when I know the person, I will contact them. Not once, until today, do they seem to indicate that they did not send the message.

So, today, one of the people that supposedly sent me these messages from Facebook told me that “they had been hacked.”

Is there a Facebook hack?
