Who Is Selene Delgado Lopez? This is What We Know So far, as Facebook Warning goes viral

Is Selene Delgado Lopez stalking you? This is the truth about Facebook friends you can’t unfriend and why it matters.

As many other social media users, this morning I awoke to check my messages across all platforms. Facebook was the platform that I had not read and which is still waiting for my attention, which was unusual for me. The message I received from my social network members was basically the same: “a-aria-label=”Are You Friends with Selene Delgado-Lopez?” class=”color-link” data-ga-track=”ExternalLink:https://www.facebook.com/public/Selene-Delgado-Lopez” href=”https://www.facebook.com/public/Selene-Delgado-Lopez” rel=”nofollow noopener noreferrer” target=”_blank” title=”https://www.facebook.com/public/Selene-Delgado-Lopez”>Are you friends with Selene Delgado Lopez? Look her up, and you’ll see you are, and you can’t unfriend her. Blocking is your only option.

I was contacted by people who were not aware of the Selene Delgado- Lopez character. They wanted to unfriend her and ask me how she could have become my friend. Let me tell you, Selene Delgado is not your friend on Facebook.

You can’t unfriend this person. She is not a friend. So, a-aria-label=”who’s Selene Delgado Lopez?” class=”color-link” data-ga-track=”ExternalLink:https://www.reddit.com/r/facebook/comments/ilgunr/who_is_selene_delgado_lopez/” href=”https://www.reddit.com/r/facebook/comments/ilgunr/who_is_selene_delgado_lopez/” rel=”nofollow noopener noreferrer” target=”_blank” title=”https://www.reddit.com/r/facebook/comments/ilgunr/who_is_selene_delgado_lopez/”>who is Selene Delgado Lopez? Here’s what we know so far and why this kind of viral warning syndrome can be problematical to your privacy and more.

Is Selene Delgado Lopez your Facebook friend?

It’s a hoax. She is a hoax. It’s that simple. It’s unclear when and where this hoax began, but the Selene Delgado Martinez warning that she is on your friend list cannot be removed is enough. You didn’t add Selene Delgado Lopez to your friend list. This should be the first clue.

You’d probably remember it. Second, the majority of warning messages I have seen claim that Selene Delgado Lopez is not only your friend but also friends with all other Facebook users. This would be a difficult task, considering Facebook’s limit of 5,000 friends.

Some messages do encourage you to take a look at your account and invite your friends to do the same. This could reveal an account without the ‘add friend’ button or a send message’ one.

This was apparently enough to convince most people that Selene Delgado Loz was already a friend. You can change the settings on your Facebook account to disable the add friend button. This will allow you to only accept requests from friends of friends and not everyone. Instead of clicking “Add friend”, a user will need to send a message to the account and ask them to send a friend request.

Who is Selene Delgado?

Here’s where things get a little strange. The original Selene Delgado account was created to perpetuate the hoax. There are multiple accounts. They chose to use an online urban legend rather than choose a fake name.

Selene Delgado Loz was apparently a Mexican woman who disappeared 30 years ago. She was featured in missing persons segments that were shown between ads on a Mexican television channel.

One of these segment videos was recently posted online in the early hours of the morning, only to be removed again later. This is apparently part of a TV channel marketing campaign. These videos were intended to be disturbing and to stimulate a chill. It seems they succeeded.

Selene Delgado Lopez once again was in the news. The reports that online accounts under her name began to appear then. All of these photos feature the same photo of an unidentified woman. Please contact me if you have any information about the woman or the lady.

Why is this important?

Most people would answer the question “Why does this matter?” The answer to the question “Why does this matter?” would be no. It’s just an online troll laughing and riding a viral wave. Right?

Sorry, I’m not like most people. I’m a cybersecurity geek and privacy geek. I believe that any hoax, particularly those that are viral, should be reported and stopped. These hoaxes should be identified by social media users, not taken in by them. They need to be able delete the fakes and continue their lives without spreading the lies.

Why? Why? Because the Selene Delgado Martinez messages have become viral, there are good chances that they will be used by people to get login credentials or to install malware.

“Hoaxes such as this can appear innocent at the start, but the truth of the matter is that they can spread at a rapid pace,” Jake Moore, a cybersecurity specialist from ESET, said. “You have the possibility that misinformation will be added which could cause it to get out of control.”

Moore recalls last year’s Momo challenge. “These campaigns can have deadly outcomes and even worse when copycat versions are created,” he said. He concluded, “It is a timely reminder that you should research the people you are connecting with on social media before you decide to connect with them.”

Addendum: Please let your friends and family know about the viral hoax. Point them to this article, if you wish, to avoid them potentially becoming involved in something malign.

Selene Delgado Lopez was warned and told to search Facebook for her. But how soon will you find a link to a search for your convenience? Or one that allows you to unfriend her in one click.

You can easily fall for a scam. This report on what can happen to one malicious hour online shows. Do not be that person and remember that Selene Delgado Lopez will not be your friend.
