Send Friend Request On Facebook

1. Search for the individual you intend to befriend (see Finding New Pals).

NOTE - If you send out a pal request to a person that can not typically see your profile-- she's not in your network, for instance-- Facebook briefly gives that individual accessibility to the fundamental, occupational, and also education-related parts of your profile (Watching Your Account) so she can make an informed decision about whether to accept your invitation.

2. If your search returns the person you're looking for, click the "Add as Friend" switch you see to the right of the person's profile picture. Conversely, click the person's name or image to check out a little bit more regarding her and after that, at the top of the prospective close friend's account web page, click the "Add as Close friend" switch. If you do not locate the individual you're trying to find, you could invite her to sign up with Facebook (Finding Individuals Who Aren't Facebook Members).

NOTE - If you don't see the "Include as Good friend" switch, it's since the person you're trying to befriend has changed her privacy settings to block close friend demands (see Chapter 14 for details).

3. Fill in the verification box that shows up and afterwards click Send Demand. In the verification box, Facebook gives you the choice of including a note in addition to your request; simply click the "Add an individual message" link. You may additionally see a couple of various other choices: If you have actually produced any Close friend Checklists (Organizing Your Pals), you could click the "Include in Provide" switch to add the person to a Buddy Listing (thinking she approves your request). As well as if you've activated your cellular phone with Facebook (see Establishing Facebook Mobile), you can turn on the "Subscribe using TEXT" checkbox to have that individual's blog posts sent out to your phone.

After you click Send out Demand, you see a Pal Demand Sent dialog box that lets you recognize Facebook has sent out an invitation to your would-be buddy's email address and posted a friend demand to her Facebook Home page (Watching Your Facebook Home Page).

NOTE - If you're new to Facebook, the Friend Request Sent dialog box might consist of good friend ideas (close friends of your soon-to-be-friend) for you to think about. Click "Add as Pal" if you're interested, or Shut if you're not

NOTE - If the individual you're extending the virtual hand of friendship to is brand-new to Facebook, after you send the pal request, Facebook displays a list of your existing buddies-- just in case you intend to inquire to join you in extending their virtual hands.

While you're waiting to listen to back from your pal, a "Pal Asked for" button replaces the common "Include as Friend" button beside her name in your search results page, and when you visit her profile, you see an "Waiting for buddy confirmation" label beside her name. If your close friend consents to the friendship and reacts either to the e-mail or the Facebook demand (Finding Individuals That Are Facebook Members), Facebook includes your name to her close friend listing, and her name to yours. Facebook additionally sends you a Notification (see Personalizing Your Mini Feed) letting you recognize that she confirmed the relationship.

NOTE - In its quest to sustain polite social communications, Facebook doesn't offer members a means to clearly turn down friend invitations, however they could ignore them. If you have actually sent out an invite and have not heard back after a couple of days, attempt sending the individual a message or jabbing him (Poking). Still no response? Sorry-- you've been snubbed
