As I’ve stated in previous posts, I’m addicted to Facebook! I was addicted to MySpace for a while but Facebook is the best. However, I have some issues when it comes with friend requests! I’ve gotten request from people that I knew by just face or name recognition only at some point in my life. Never really had a real conversation with them or anything. Somehow they now want me to accept them into my inner friendom(yes I made this word up!). Granted there are people in my friends list that I haven’t seen or spoken too in a while but somewhere in our past, we had some type of friendship and said more than “hello” to each other. There are also people I see on Facebook that I know very very well however, I also know that we don’t get along like we use to so I don’t request them as “friends”.
My issue is that when I “ignore” requests from people I’ve never really known at all I still kinda feel bad. I mean for some reason they saw my name and said “hey I’m going to request her as my “friend”. Even though I have seen their names hundreds of times and only thought “oh look there’s him or her” and gone on with my life. LOL I know most of it is just people being nosy. They want to know what you’re doing and who with. I get that but I would feel odd to request someone as a friend and we had only said hello in passing, if that.
So at the risk of having someone say “I can’t believe that _______(fill in the word) ignored my request. I will continue to shut out the people that I’ve forgotten even existed until the infamous “1 friend request” pops up on my home page.
This has been a Jennifer public service announcement!!
Yes I recieved a request just like this today hence the blog!
