Friend request


Can anyone explain why some people think it's perfectly ok send a friend request be friends yet there as never been a single exchange with the person. What is the purpose of this? I'm I the only one uncomfortable with this? For it's too much like putting the cart before the .

part of the social media ethos where a person's worth is measured by their 'friend' count

They want to see your private albums, if any, which can only be viewed by Friends.

I def agree....if you havent sent an email...or an IM with a simple ' hello ' or something further.....dont come at me with a friend request. I delete em....i mean.....why bother ? Makes no sense to me.....BUT as Hamo says....for some people.....they gather friends as a symbol of their worth. For me....friends are or should be more meaningful.~~

Another possibility is it’s just their way of saying ‘hey, check out my profile’. Free members are extremely limited on ways of contacting others. Just a thought.

Yea, I never understood that either. Some like to see how many friends they can collect. I rarely accept requests like that anymore. And if I do accept, if that person hasn't said a word to me after a reasonable amount of time has passed, I delete them. What are the really going to say?? Nothing. Exactly my point.

I agree that sending a friend request when you have had no contact is stupid. I also figure that such people are just interested in the number of "friends" they can boast of.

If you see me in the real world, come say "Hi Justskin."

I always behave. Preferably not well.

From another viewpoint, it could sent so as to create something of a shortcut to your profile. If someone likes a profile, they naturally want a way to bookmark it. What better way than a friend request?

free members can't send friend requests

Ive received those as well. Sometimes from obviously fake profiles. I usually reply first and ask what prompted you to want to be friends when we havent even chatted.

Well it would be easy to get a hold of you the next time they was on this site, if they added you as a friend. That is what i think.
