    You had better contact Facebook and get to the bottom of this. Does anyone else besides you have access to your Facebook account?

    Sadly this happens all too often. Identity theft on Facebook is a common thing. Your friends should be smart enough to know this.

    I agree with Tal, contact Facebook and let them know this is going on. Make your account more secure. Don't repost those memes that say "if you agree, like and share" those are used to hack your account. Also the "type Amen" ones, and chain letters, and anyone that says "copy and paste to your account, don't share" are all used by hackers. Be aware of what goes on online so that you can protect yourself as much as possible.

    As for your friends, if they don't believe you then they obviously aren't very good friends. Maybe you're better off without them.

    Happens all the time, they do this for various scams, They will also often send messages, multi media with a virus attached.

    If your friends don't know about this, tell them to Google it. And if they don't believe you they were never really a friend. Just someone you knew who did not really trust or like you a lot anyway.

    Good way to find out who real friends are.
