    I've just had a friends request from someone I don't know. I've checked with the girls and family and they don't know them either. His profile is set for friends etc only so how can I message him to ask him who he is. :confused: Or should I just ignore him. :D

    Ignore. You can actually click on something on the request that sends a message to facebook to say that you don't know the person, and I think it stops them requesting you again in the future. ;)

    If I get a request I dont recognise I send a message to say Im sorry but I don't recognise you.. How do you know me..

    I got a reply once saying 'I just seen you on my friends list.. Thought you looked nice so thought I would have a try'.. :lol:

    I replied a message laughing about it.. amazingly we got chatting.. he sent me another message 'now I have got my feet under the table are you going to let me be your friend'.. :lol:

    I accepted, and you know I have some right laughs with him.. and we even exchanged numbers.. He has a lovely Rottweiler and has eventually got a lovely girlfriend and she chats with me too.. I know.. very Random.. :lol: And you know he lives no where near me..

    You could say that.. But people only know what you put on there.. :) Also You can have it so no one can search you as I now have it.. :) Unless you are on my actual friendds list you can't view my pictures view anything about me..


    Its a great place to make people aware of things that happen whether its a stolen dog.. Or a young lad that has gone missing..

    I agree,

    FB is as safe as you make it, I removed anyone I dont really know. The few ive got on I dont know well have restricted access to my profile and oly family and friends can see it all.
     
  16. Tell the sad f@uk to go find a *real* friend then press what ever buttons required.
     
  17. :lol: Nigerian perhaps with a server in the bedroom big and powerful enough to keep Santander on line :rolleyes:

    Even the people you know arent trustworthy sadly!
    I put a status on last week saying
    "Had a checkup with the midwife as the baby wasnt moving as much. Turns out he has turned round so his back is facing out the way and here I am worrying lol! He's fine x"

    Someone went back and said to my mum and sister I'd put on FB the baby had stopped moving and was in hospital :eek: Queue me and OH getting frantic phonecalls with my mum and sister crying, i hate troublemakers :mad:
     
  19. More sad f@cks with nothing better to do with their lives.

    Would it not have been better if you had just actually spoke to your mum and sister, like real *speaking* so they could have told the drama lamas to get a life when they phoned them?
