    Default Facebook Friend?

    Does anyone ever get friend requests from people they don't know? I got one today.....not sure if its maybe someone using their DHs account or something......or if its in error.....or could it be like a virus or something?

    Anyone know if FB viruses ever mascarade as Friend Requests?

    Should I accept it to look and see who it is?

    When someone friends you, don't you get limited access to their account??? I personally don't friend people I don't know, although more and more I'm seeing it used as a marketing / networking tool for people in business as opposed to simply a social thing.

    You can click to see who it is. You don't have to choose to befriend them.

    Usually when I get that, i just ask them what their screen name is and either they tell me their LM name, or they say “WUH?!“ and I realise they have mistaken me for someone else.

    I think I'm set up so I do not show up on searches, but can be seen on friends' lists, so usually it's cos we have someone in common they message me, and either it's cos we're from here, or they think I'm someone else entirely. There are many allies (in varying forms) on here alone. I think I have 5 allisons on FB?
