To set the record straight, the supposed threat is described as such: When a Facebook user accepts the friend request from the so-called hacker Jayden K Smith, their accounts and all their friends' in their networks will get hacked.

Here's one example of it:

"Please tell all the contacts in your messenger list not to accept Jayden K. Smith friendship 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," the warning message reads.
