I’m still a relative newbie on Facebook and am understanding more about whom to accept as "friends." I know you don’t friend former anythings, with very rare exceptions. This includes former co-workers, former family members and friends of formers, too.
What I’m not quite sure about, though, is how to handle friend requests from people I don’t know and have never heard of. Many of these unknowns are usually friends of other Facebook friends, but I also get friend requests from complete strangers. We have zero friends in common, which raises the question: Why did you request that I accept you as a friend?
As I’ve said before, I decline or ignore more Facebook requests than I accept. I try to spend as little time as possible on Facebook, and sometimes go several days without looking at anything there. I interact more with Facebook friends on my BlackBerry (yes, I have one now) than I do on the World Wide Web, and am usually in and out of there in less than two minutes.
I probably spend 20 minutes or less a week on Facebook, which seems about right.
How about you? How much time do you spend there? And, what do you with requests from complete strangers?
