    Would you accept a friend request from someone you don't really know on FB if you have common friends with them?

    Nah, some of the rubbish people share gets on my nerves. Adding another person to that list wouldn't be helpful.

    No, never, its always for the wrong reasons.
    I would message them first and ask who are you, if its some *****y response I would block them right away.

    No. I've had people try to add me. I've looked through their friend list and yes, we've got friends in common but I have no idea who they are.

    Unless I've interacted with you, I'm not going to add you.

    Someone did keep trying to add me and wouldn't tell me who he was. We have friends in common; but have never talked I don't think.

    The reason I ask is adding this girl who does not really know me would probably be the chance to befriend her as she is likely leaving university for good (graduated)? What do I do?

    If you can speak to her in person, do that but from what I remember, you can message people who you haven't added, so message her and let her know.

    You don't think it would be strange? What can I even say to her, definitely not "I'd like to be friends"?

    Have you ever talked to her at all? Cause that's different to what many of us are saying in this thread - we won't add people we've never talked to at all.e

    No, I only have 20 - 30 or so people on Facebook and they're friends, family and colleagues.

    I don't get why people add complete strangers just so they can increase their number of "friends" on the site.

    Personally, I am quite upfront, so I would usually message them, maybe start with congratulating her then tell her that you would like to add her as a friend on Facebook

    But that's just me

    Right but what would make her want to add me back? What should I say, "hey we're from the same university" or?

    I used to get girls from America and the Philippines adding me all the time, no idea why. I used to add them and then stalk their profile to see if they were worth keeping on my friends list. Haven't used FB in a good few years now though.

    Yeah, say that! Honestly, this message will make it less stalky, because adding them without any reason just seems dodgy.
