Does it bother anyone else that random people request them?! It drives me nuts & it happens all the time.
Yes maybe we have 28 friends in common but I DONT KNOW YOU, WE HAVE NEVER MET!
Or we went to school together- We were not friends then, why should we be now?
However I dont mind the requests of people I went to school with and havent talked to in 10+ years because we were friends and reconnecting is great!

Yes it does. I have had multiple people that went to my high school but I never talked to ever that send me friend requests. I also had a group of people request to be my friend because they thought I was someone else. When I told them I wasn’t they all wanted to become friends anyway which was strange to me. I’ve also never gotten adding 100 new friends with the same name as you. I also like adding people I haven’t talked to in years though. I found my old best friend from down the street that I hadn’t seen since fourth grade one day so that was nice.

No offense to anyone who does this – but I HATE having to friend people’s dogs. I think it’s cute to have a pet page, and if you let other people voluntarily friend them, then it’s adorable.
But Fiance has a friend that I don’t particularly care for, and she kept bugging me to friend her dog. She even did it to a friend of mine that she met one time. It’s ridiculously annoying. 😛

Nah, it doesn’t really bother me. I just ignore the friend request if I don’t know them. I usually accept the friend request if we are acquaintances (like friend-of-a-friend and we met at a party).

@jo.lee: Luckily I haven’t had any pet requests yet. I think that’s where I’d have to draw the line

I haven’t had any pet requests either, LOL. It doesn’t really bother me when random people add me – as long as I know them or did at one point. I accept pretty much all friend requests though.

I’ve not had a pet request either — yet.
I don’t mind the random friend requests from people I don’t know. I usually assume (since I have a common name) they thought I am someone else with the same name and I ignore them.
If it is someone I went to high school with but never really knew, I’ll add them. I have had a few of these actually turn out well. High school was a long time ago and people change. I actually got to know a guy who didn’t give me the time of day in high school. He sent me a friend request on Facebook, we met in person a few weeks at a gathering of mutual friends that was arranged on Facebook, and we started dating. We weren’t right for each other, but are still good friends.

Definitely hate the pet friend requests – or just as bad, the BABY friend requests – your one year old (or even your 3 year old) is not using facebook so why are you making a page for them?
I dont understand why you would request to be the friend of a random person. I just ignore those. I will add people that are from my past though because its fun to reconnect without totally reconnecting!!
