Added then Unfriended

They're so funny--the people on facebook. A guy from another dimension, haha just kidding he's actually from India, sent me a friend request last week and then when I checked his profile today I found out that he's no longer on my friends list so it means he unfriended me himself. He's so absurd! Why would he send me a friend request if he's going to unfriend me afterwards? There are lots of people like that on facebook. They are so crazy and funny. They are just wasting their time.

Maybe he's a poser or he accidentally added you.

Agree on this. I have chanced upon this kind of people too, I know I have but most of the time whenever I have friends adding me to their account I do not monitor them if they have removed me or not.

Yes, I agree to you that there are many people on facebook who are involved in creation of fake accounts or accounts with fake information and indulge themselves in deceiving people by sending them requests, or chatting with them. But, we ourselves must be careful about accepting stranger's request and must include only those in the friend's list whom we know personally. Even if you receive a friend request of stranger from facebook, it is recommended that you first message the person to note his concern for sending you request. Then , only if the concern is reasonable, you must accept it.

Some people are just actually curious with the pictures of other people. And isn't it some info are not visible if you are not friends with them? So, that's most likely the reason behind it. Or maybe, he was looking for a person with the same name and wasn't really sure until you accepted his friend request.

I have a rule for situations like that.I never accept friend requests from strangers. Some facebook users add you to spy on you for a while and when they don't find something interesting on your profile they delete you.It's very anoying.

I have no idea. Maybe he thought you were someone else and once he realized it he unfriended you.

This happens to me aswell, many times before. Even old classmates from highschool and elementary did this to me...so I made a list and put everybody I don't know there with viewing restrictions. If they are still there after 5 months I might consider to promote them to a better list with less restrictions. haha but that guy might be crazy,,did he ever chat you?If not then maybe he was just sniffing some info,looking at pics,etc...

I have myself hidden on facebook so unless a person knows me...they can't find me I think social media is great, but my personal photos are blocked for just anyone to see. I think it's creepy when people we don't know look through our pictures so have them blocked from all public access. Only close friends can access my photos. Anyway, sounds like this person was curious, wanted to poke around your page then unfriended you for whatever reason.
