I've been lucky I guess, no completely random friend requests as such. But there are people who never made the effort to speak to you in school when you were actually around them; and they you add purely to boost their friend count and never bother speaking to you on FB either. That pisses me the hell off.
Unexpected facebook friend requests?? Watch

i had a joke with some friends last year and we all changed our names, and i changed my facebook name to philippa mary sex-mason and the next day i had 65 friend requests, all from random guys, none of whom i had mutual friends with. about 5 had sent me messages as well. needless to say, i changed my name..
i sometimes get randoms adding me, with a few friends in common. i accept them, look at their profile and if i definitely don't know them, i remove them.

Sometimes. It's not as bad as it was on myspace.
There I got all sorts of random people adding me.
Ah Myspace, it was so 2005.

It's really weird when that happens I have ppl from turkey friend requesting me

Facebook killed meeting people online. Everyone is so suspicious now.
- 04-08-2009 18:53
Yeah, it happens.
Just ignore their request.
Or if you want to show people how "awesome" you are, accept.
Because nothing screams -I'm popular- more than a lot of facebook friends. *Cough*

It could be just some lonely horny old woman, lol.
I collect friend requests, have over 100 pending now. There is a variety of freaks on there.
Sometimes I get random messages too. Like this guy messaged me and said 'Can I ask you a question? Does anal hurt girls?' And I said come here and I'll **** you with my big black ****. He said 'But you are a girl in your profile picture..' and I said well 'I am a shemale' hahaha and he blocked me as fast as he could. Serves them right!

This made me check the fake 2nd facebook account I made a couple of months back as exam procrastination as the beginning of an elaborate prank on a friend. i never got round to the rest of the plan so the profile has just been sitting there with a random picture of a pretty girl I added.
I get back and it has 29 friend requests, 1 poke and 1 complimentary message from random people. All guys except for 1 girl!
Do these people actually think the know someone by the random name I put up or are they just using facebook to cruise for girls?
The wouldnt have been able to see anything but the name and picture I put up
They are not particularly foreign or of any race, a mixed bunch really apart from being all -1 guys
Also what should I do with them now?
I think this happens to girls a lot more than guys
