CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The latest hoax to reach Facebook and its users is the "following me" claim.

According to the fact-checking site Snopes, the supposed spies are found by going to the Block Users section under Settings and typing "following me" in the search bar.

In reality, this simply searches someone's profile for the words "following" and "me."

Snopes also mentions a similar hoax from earlier this year when people were told to type "Facebook Security" in the field.
