Are you friends with yourself on Facebook?

Tried to research this with no luck. I am on my own friends list on Facebook. I do not have 2 accounts. The reason I noticed this, I did see a status saying Facebook has been hacked, and if you are on your own friends list, delete yourself.

I do not fuel the warnings that circulate on Facebook from time to time. I did not post anything until I figured out what this actually is. As far as the hacking theory, I don’t believe that. I would like to know, however when and why this appeared. Probably something to do with Facebook and how they are changing things around.

    I didn't know this was even possible. The first thing that came to mind when I read your question was that it was some kind of Facebook virus. These things get caused a lot of different ways, most notably through installing sketchy applications and clicking on links through bizarre message chains.
