Friend request


So, just something random to share on a Friday.

For those of you who have FB account, what are the things you'll consider if someone ask to be your friend?
For me, first, I'd see the name, then I'd see if I know him/her in person. Sometimes, even if he has some mutual friends but if I don't know him at all, or I haven't seen him before, I will surely delete the request.
Sometimes, people dealing with online boutique business come to add, I'll browse at their albums first before confirming the request. I already have too many friends like this, so just wanna do some filter before adding.

But one thing for sure, I'll definetely delete requests from those who doesn't have a proper profile picture (some people likes to put picture of animals, celebrities and so on) and comes with unfamiliar names. Also, people who come to add me but restrict their photos to be viewed by others (How would I know who you are if you blocked all your photos??)
At least include a personal message la!

Well, I just think that FB isn't that secure thesedays and for me, I just wanna be careful in accepting friends, just don't wanna reveal too much of my personal infor/photos to everyone, unnecessarily.

That's all for today. Here wishing all of you a lovely weekend! ;)

  2. very true, i share the same view with you.. whoever adds me, i really need to know that i know him/her.. those without picture and using funny names are sure gonna ignore their requests.. you want to be so secretive, then why add people??

  3. oh, those shops and boutiques?? never would add them, not even will like them.. because they will always tag you in their product photos, which i really hate!! this is abusing and flooding and spamming lah..

  4. actually nothing is private once you are in the internet lah.. instead of defending your own privacy from others, i think it's better that you disclose as little as possible lah..

  7. Hayley, I actually reduce my freind list every now and then. People is expanding their friend list, I am the one reducing it. I remove many friends from my freind list these days. People even I know, but no interaction for 1 year, I will remove it.

  8. We are two in that... I dont add peeps much... first i checked the prof pic.. if it's showing something suspicious i automatically reject... if the pic is decent and the person face is in there I look if we have mutual friends... lol.. if the mutual friend is not really that close to me ... or just an acquaintance i reject too... We gotta be careful.. i have my albums on private too so no one can grab without me knowing it

  11. Very wise. You wouldn't want wierdos monitoring your activities. They could be planning a robbery or something.
    Not only friends. The apps you allow access to your account steals your info too.

  12. Ya I do agree that people who do not use a proper profile picture doesnt qualified to be added as friend. haha

    Gotta be careful with what you share on FB since there's a subscribe thingy too...

    ReplyDelete
  13. I agree with you, I don't anyhow add friends, in fact all the friends in my facebook are friends I know personally, such as my old classmates,schoolmates, ex-colleagues and personal friends so on. I do not add people I don't know cos that makes me feel uncomfortable.

  14. I'm trying to add you in my fb list but do not know your name in Fb.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don`t accept requests if we have few mutual friends.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I normally only accept if I really know them or have such a common circle of friends that I know are real people and / or real friends. Hate the friends collector.

    And if they are quite persistent, the I normally drop them a note to catch up with me on twitter and my FB page for my blog.

  24. 有些潜水的朋友在面子书上找到我,加了之后没有确实说明,不确认他们是人之常情啊!除非有经常留言,我认得名字或照片则另当别论。

    ReplyDelete

  26. if without picture i can still accept la if they intro themselves to me. My FB allows people to PM me. I just dont like people simply send "add Me" request and dont introduce themselves. I dont who they are. Need to guess.

    ReplyDelete
