I suddenly started getting Facebook messages from people I know, but I have never had a Facebook account. The notification pops up in the right hand corner just like my email notifications but they are talking to other people, not me of course since I have never had a Facebook account. Both my kids do but they have never accessed it from my computer that I am aware of. How do I know this isn't a hacking or spyware problem?

Someone has setup the a facebook account and this is why you are getting notifications. Go have a look in Systeme Preferences > Mail, Contact & Calendar.
And look for a facebook account on the left panel. enter image description here
