anyone else getting numerous friend requests from random strangers?

not that I mind too much, but when I click on their page, there is not much info there and no groups listed or even groups that I belong to, or even anything in common. Something just feels slightly strange, about it.

  • YES! And it drives me nuts. If you can't tell me WHY you want to be friends, then I don't want to be friends.... and NO I don't want to hear about your work-at-home business.

  • Be leary, there are alot of moms pushing their home business on here. Not that I'm knocking them, everyone needs to make a living, but if your not interested then your not! Also there have been known to be men on here, occasionally! Not sure why they'd want to waste their time here, but it does happen. I say if you don't have anything in common or have talked already, don't accept a random friend invite.

  • The idea should not be to collect friends, but to make friends. Only accept those invitations you feel comfortable with.

  • If I'm offered insurance or work oportunities that cost me money I shy away. But if someone asks me and we have something in common that's great! I'm always flattered!
