Friends

Are you more apt to accept a friend invite when the person is very up front and honest about themselves on their page? Leaves nothing to your imagination and whatnot.....

Are you less likely to accept a friend invite from someone whose page is set to private so you can't browse their page?

  • i guess if i was invited to accept a friend and thier page was set to private i would think to myself what they are hiding and why they need to do so.
    i really have no reason not to accept them as friends no matter what they're profile is like or set up like.

  • Actually i'm more likely to accept if the person invites me to be friends with a message to me like maybe stating why they want to be friends or something. It kind of shows their personality in a sense. I don't like getting friend invites from people who just invite me with no message then when I accept they never talk to me. It's like they just wanted to look at my profile..or it makes me think it's some creep lol especially if they don't have any or little info or pics on their profile it makes me feel like i'm being watched.

  • usually if I have seen the name someplace before I don't even check the profile. I just accept the invite. If I never remember seeing the name before I ask the person were they know me from (like a group or answers) then if they tell me I accept if not I decline.

  • i haven't had this happen, but i think if i were to receive an invite from someone who'd page was private, i would decline... if i'm out there for the world to see, then i like to think my friends are also...

  • I like a friend to tell me about herself. It makes it more personal.

  • I keep my profile private, Because I have weird ex boyfriends who like "google' my name... and I dont want them looking at my daughter or sons pictures, I am a protective mommy.

    But If someone wants to add me as a friends, I always accept, I see it as an opportunity to make new friends, and I can always use more mommy friends...

  • I want to know why they want to be a friend if we have somthing in common then I will add them if they don't really have any info about themselves then I am weary of adding them.
