It seems like every time I turn around, I’m getting a friend request by men either from Australia or Saudi Arabia. I usually just delete the request, but I just needed to know what any of you do.
Nope. Delete, delete, delete.
Depends, if we have several mutual friends I usually will. If it's someone with whom I do not have a mutural friend(s), I don't unless they send me a PM explaining how they know who I am and why they want to be my friend. I get a LOT of bogus requests.
Make FB private.
People on my Facebook acct are people that I actually know in real life. Friend requests from people that I don't know, I delete.
Automatically reject if I don't know them personally.
I delete the ones that don't have any mutual friends and that I've never spoke to on any comments
I've been getting them from strangers too lately - if Idon't know them I delete them. Last time I said yes I had a scammer from a FB post.
It depends on mutual friends and what we have in common. How’d they find me?
It just depends. I'm into political activism and once accepted a friend request from a person simply because I knew they were friends with an activist actor. I did this because I really wanted to be in touch with that person and they already had too many friends. Now we are all friends. There are many that I turn down and do not know. Some people on Facebook just befriend everybody.
I belong to many different groups on Facebook, so if they are legitimate friends of friends, I will probably accept them. But I also get approached by people (women, mostly) that have a profile less than three days old, seem to own little or no clothing and think I am real cute (dead giveaway right there). buh-bye
I don't have that problem, my FB account is only visible to friends, not even their friends can see me and noone can send me a freind request. I have less than 50 contacts, almost all of them are either family or foster kids.
@EmeraldJewel My account is set to friends and friends of friends. I very rarely get requests, but Facebook is really just a way for me to stay in touch with family/friends.
No mutual no acceptance
