What is the new Facebook "following me" hoax?

Facebook has been a part of most of our lives for around a decade now yet it appears we are still pretty awful at identifying what is legitimate and what is a hoax or a wind-up.

This week's hoax has been catching people by surprise and sending them into blind panic is the "following me" myth.

This alludes to a list of secret people following you that are not your friends but just complete randomers, so basically - stalkers.

If you go to your settings and find the blocked users tab and type "follow me" - doing this will achieve precisely nothing.

This is just a ruse, and an old one as it's been about countless times before.
