Friend Request: Uh... How Do I Know You?

Featured BlogHer Network Post

Editor's Note: I laughed reading Ashley Quite Frankly's post about friend requests because I too turn into a Facebook sleuth trying to figure out how I know the person when one comes into my inbox. It would be so much easier if Facebook made it mandatory for all people making a friend request to tell you how you're connected. --Mel

Here's how my Facebook friend request process goes:

I have a friend request -- yay!!

Wait, I don't recognize this person at all. Who in the hell?

Great. This is awkward.

Do you wish that people needed to include how they know you in their friend request?
