Controlling Friend Requests

Controlling Friend Requests

You can also limit who on Facebook can request to be your friend. By default, anyone on Facebook can friend you; you might not want to see friend requests from people you don't know, however.

To limit friend requests, click the Privacy Shortcuts button on the toolbar and then click the down arrow next to Who Can Contact Me? to expand this section. Go to the Who Can Send Me Friend Requests? section and click the Privacy button. (By default, the button says "Everyone.") Click Friends of Friends to limit friend requests to people who know the people you know—people who are friends with your Facebook friends.
