How to Deal With Unwanted Friend Requests on Facebook

These days everyone who meets us outside will be going to be in our friend list one or the other day whether we meet them only once or more. The main issue we don’t want everyone to be in our friend list as not all people we meet outside are close to us but we just talk casually with them.

Consider a situation of going to a party and meeting someone for the first time through our friends or in any other way and have a good conversation with him/her. But suddenly on the next day when you logged in into Facebook account you will see a friend request from the person who you met in an yesterday’s party. At this situation, you just need to add him or reject the request or even you can do nothing.
