Strangers wanting to friend you on facebook

How comfortable are you about this? I am talking about people who aren’t friends of friends and who don’t know you via a facebook group. The kind who says I saw your photo and want to get to know you better.

Never accepted. Creeps, want “friends”

I have never had that. But I don’t post a pic of myself in my profile

The thing is I’m not photogenic. The woman looked about 30 years younger than me and her photo was quite provocative.

I used to get follows from sexy women on Twitter. Never knew why then I figured they were ‘bots’ used to usually promote porn sites and such

Make sure your privacy settings are where you want them. I don’t accept friend requests even from people who know another friend. I think people get into trouble when they start friend-collecting. It’s about quality not quantity…keep yourself safe. :blush:

I never know what to say to perfect strangers I tried be nice and accept them but then found out they were scams so I unfriended them and blocked them.

I am guessing she saw me because I made several public political posts. I wish they would make it easier to check out someone making a friend request.

I find it hard too and wonder why people would want to know me. I’m not exactly a charismatic/interesting person.

They were probably trying to lure you in for some underhanded reason, maybe to get money, or something like that.

neither am I, that’s why when they say “i thought you were cute” I want to ask who’s picture are they looking at?
