When you get a friend request from random strangers.....

Do you go head and add them or do you ignore them? For some reason I'm always a little surprised when I get a freind request from someone I've never spoken to, I've never seen in Answers, just a random person from out of the blue lol...I usually add them anyways but of course they end up being the people that I never hear from again lol

What do you do?

  • Not anymore. I've learned that most of the times those random add's just want to try to get you to join a group or sell you shit.

  • I rarely add anyone- If you send me a request, I will check out your profile and based on what I see there and if I recognise your screen name or not I will decide...

    I never send rquests to anyone

  • no..sometimes i don't even accept those who i recognize. i don't have any real information on my profile, and very few pics, so its not a matter of trusting for me..i just don't wanna!

  • I don't add them only because I usually end up cleaning up my friends list every month and end up keeping the ones I talk to the most. and if they are randomly out of the blue, chances are we haven't or won't talk after I do add them anyway - I find it weird anyway

  • Are you talking just here on Cafe Mom? I would add them here. We're all in the same boat. If you are talking something like Facebook, I don't add anyone I don't know, esp if we have zero friends in common.

  • I don't add people I don't know from discussion groups.

  • I poke around a bit - how old is their acct, where are they from, etc. They have that mom finder feature that suggests other members based on geographic location, age, interests, etc. IIRC, it's one of the steps they walk you through on that little tutorial checklist when you first join. I don't usually add them, but I'll at least respond if it seems like that's why they sent the request.
