So my fiance has been on FB for few years, but he only opens it few times in a year. The only friends on his FB are our bestfriend. None of them that we don't really know and that is his policy, he never adds someone he doesn't know, he said there's no point, there's nothing in common between him and the unknown person and there won't be much conversation since he's paying more attention on our real friendship with our known friends. He also don't want want to give a privilege to anyone unknown to go around his profile, pictures, and anything you can put on FB. But lately, since few weeks....people from my village have been adding me, so I accepted their request since I know who they are, but as soon as I accepted their friend request, my fiance's email starts flooding with email from FB saying this and that person added you as a friend on FB. Like more than 20 of them. I dunno if they all are just friendly, but none of them know him, never met him either. And probably because he is white? because my younger brother is under my friend list too, but no one seems to realize that. And the funny thing is most of those people from my village who are adding him are a young girls lol. But it's not scary because they can clearly see our relationship status which is engaged. But now, my fiance is getting really irritated with those request. he said if he ever accepted the request, these people may do the same thing to all our bestfriend on FB, who knows. I had to spend some time on his FB denying all the request because he doesn't really want to it, and as I said, he doesn't go on FB too much because he's busy with work. Have this kind of situation ever happened to you? did you accept their friend request or deny them?

Hi Wollivierre, Yeah that is very understandable because one of my own friend is doing the same thing. She is a member of Avon and she has her own blog. She use Facebook Account not for personal but for marketing purposes. She's making money quite a lot just from there. All she needs for promoting all the new arrival products is Facebook. I hope you will do well with the marketing just like her too :) Thank you for responding and have a nice day

it's really hard to trust anyone nowadays,specially with those accounts which are private.i never liked giving my personal informations when it comes to internet things. we don't know what others are up to sometimes that's why it's still better to be careful. regards with facebook,before i really do add anyone who i never knew,but then it took me a while to realize it still better to keep yourself private sometimes...

I totally agree with you. I can't be bothered to trust people I don't really know and I really don't like sharing my private information even to some people I actually know.

That is exactly what he did Well there's no point to accept the friendship request anyway because he goes on Facebook like only twice a year And yes, he always want to keep himself secure from anyone who he does not know. Thanks for responding and have a nice day.

It's funny how the freindship requests can just go crazy like that. I started on Facebook a while back to communicate with my twin nieces who were in college at the time. So for months the only peole I was friends with on there were them. Then my best friend from high school who I am still friends with discovered that I was on there and sent a friend request which of course I accepted, then another friend from high school saw me on her friends list and requested a friendship, then another saw me on that person friend list. With in a week I kid you not I had 68 new friend requests from people from high school. It is not like I just graduated either I have been out of high school for 20 years, so it was nice that so many people wanted to communicate with me after all these years. I accepted them all because I know them. I have gotten like 8 requests from guys that I don't know and they don't seem to be connected to anyone I know so I declined those. I don't think my husband would appreciate me talking to strange guys on Facebook.

No, I don't think I will appreciate my fiance for adding those completely unknown girls into his Facebook lol, but I know he won't, because he also never did so far. He himself would ask me a loooong "whyyyyyyy?" if I wanted to add someone I don't know in Facebook. Then he will say, ok being friendly is being friendly, but don't turn to me when you get in trouble. We don't add people we don't know is because from our own experience too though, I added someone I knew when i was a kid, but haven't seen him for many years, then he copied our picture, edited it, post it again on FB then tagged us. I was shocked, and I got really angry at him that I even blocked him from accessing my Facebook. Now you can imagine how angry my fiance was towards me, he was so mad at me :(

Hi kodukodu... I have an account on FB but i seldom open it and have a few friends there. If it happens to me, then i shall add them as my friend but after noticing their activities, i would delete them according to their activities. Have a nice day.
