friend's request

sometimes on those networking type of websites, you just get random ppl adding you as friends. i normally dont add strangers. yeah, i've learned :X i'm pretty blunt about it too. if their network is not anywhere i recognize (e.g. south america), i automatically ignore. if it is somewhere i have friends in (i.e. sf, hk, taiwan, etc) and i dont recognize them, i would send them a msg, "i'm sorry, have we met?" and if they respond with, "no, just wanna make new friends," i politely tell them i dont add ppl i dont know. i rarely add strangers

but recently (and i only noticed this happening on facebook), i got ppl i dont recognize at all adding me... but i feel obligated to add them bc we have a lot of similar friends. mostly friends from hk or ones i meant in taiwan. so i dont know if they are just adding me bc i know a lot of their friends, or if we went to the same school/program or bc we've met but i dont remember... ?!?! (it's been over 10 yrs!)

but seriously, i dont recognize their name... or faces... oh well.

and if you're wondering, yes, i do end up adding them... without asking questions lol i'm afraid to ask :X

I just signed up for Facebook like literally 2 days ago. I finally gave in. Though I have not had any strangers add me...like 3 people who I barely spoke to at all during high school added me...WTF? This confuses me greatly as well, why would you want to be "friends" now?

Same here. I've gotten friend requests from people I knew of, but am pretty sure I never spoke to from high school...

but i do know there are some ppl who just like to add everyone they ever know or know of. lol

I don't even go that far. If I know them, I add them. If I don't, I click decline and never look back.

...Unless they explain why they want to add me and its reasonable.

well what if i do know them but i forgot?! haha so i always check their profile to look at pics and stuff. maybe the profile pic isnt clear enough or something? and i would take notice of our mutual friends.

sometimes they are private profiles so I add them, then look through their profile, then end up deleting them. Its a lot of work, really.

for facebook, if they requested you, you can look at their limited profile without adding them :D

I get the impression facebook is a bit better organized than myspace.
