Additional FAQs

What is a friend request on Facebook?

The purpose of a friend request is to connect you with other people on Facebook. Once a friend request has been sent, the receiving side receives a notification and can decide whether or not to accept your offer. If the request is accepted, the user will appear on your Friends list and will gain access to your shared content, including photos and statuses.

How are friend requests canceled on Facebook?

You can cancel your friend requests whenever you want, as long as the users haven’t accepted them yet. The other person doesn’t get a notification about the cancellation anyway. However, if the user has detected your friend request and noticed the offer, they may find that the friend request was canceled once it disappeared.

Here’s how to cancel your Facebook friend requests:

• Open Facebook and press the “Find friends” button.

• Click on the “Friend Requests” option, followed by “View Sent Requests”.

• All your submitted applications will be here. To cancel them, simply press the “Cancel Request” button next to the user (s).
