How do I delete a hidden friend request on Facebook?

To return to hidden Friend Requests, enter the Friend Request menu and scroll down to the bottom of the menu and select See All. This sends you to a page that displays all of your pending requests (even hidden ones). A request can then be confirmed or permanently deleted. Hidden requests will not appear in your Activity page but they will still show up when using the API.

Can you have an invisible Facebook friend?

Any new or previously accepted friend invitations will no longer display on your timeline. Nobody will be able to view your buddy lists, making all friendships invisible to everyone but you. Your contacts will still be able to send you messages and invite you to events, just like any other friend.

How do I find out which friend requests I ignored on Facebook?

Yes, you may view the friend requests you've given but haven't received. When you go to your Facebook account's Friend Request tab and select "view all," it displays a list of outstanding friend requests on your end as well as a list of suggested friends. Click on the thumbnail image to see who has requested to be your friend.

Do friend requests expire on Facebook?

As you may be aware, friend requests on Facebook build over time yet never expire. This means that any requests you get will stay in your friend requests until you accept or delete them. In other words, there's no need to worry about someone removing themselves from your list.

How do you turn off friend requests on Facebook?

To stop friend requests on Facebook, click the lockbox in the upper right corner. "See More Settings" should be selected.

Is it illegal to take back a friend request on Facebook?

It's understandable to want to withdraw a friend request if it's been sitting for too long, but using the tool to continuously remind someone that they have a friend request from you isn't a smart idea and possibly borders on insane. It may even be prohibited in some nations, although that is only a speculation.

The ability to remove a friend request was introduced into the Facebook platform in August 2011 as a way for users to control which friends can send them friend requests. While this feature is very useful for people who have a lot of friends and want to make sure they don't miss any requests, it also creates issues when trying to manage privacy settings or limit the number of friends who can see your information.

Using the tool to repeatedly ask someone to remove their friend request could cause them to block you. If this happens then you will not be able to add them as a friend again until they unblock you. This can get awkward if you have to do it a lot.

It is best to just leave friend requests alone unless you are certain you want to delete them. The last thing you want to do is annoy someone enough to remove you as a friend!

How do I find pending friend requests on Facebook?

When you're signed into Facebook, click the Friends symbol in the upper right to see your pending friend requests. If you have unseen friend requests pending, a red number will appear over the symbol, showing how many people have asked to friend you. Click the button to view them.

Is it possible to accidentally send a friend request on Facebook?

Yes, it is conceivable that we unintentionally submit a friend request while perusing someone's Facebook page. When I was able to examine submitted friend requests on Facebook after a few years, I was astonished since there were friend requests received from my Facebook account to unfamiliar persons. It seems likely that we inadvertently sent the friend request during some other activity on Facebook.

In addition, it is possible for someone to submit a friend request using your email address. If you use the same password for different websites, then it is possible that someone could guess your password and send the request from the desired user's email address. Finally, there are applications available for download from the Internet that allow you to submit friend requests without having to go through Facebook's normal registration process. Such applications might contain code that could cause them to accept requests with malicious intent.

Thus, it is possible to accidentally send a friend request on Facebook - but only through methods described above. An automated approach would be to use a program to login to Facebook and submit requests based on criteria such as email address or username. A manual approach would be to search through friends lists or look at recent activity (posts) for people who aren't familiar to determine which ones might be eligible to be requested as friends. Either method could result in sending requests to incorrect individuals or deleting requests from existing friends.
