i am kinda new to FB, just learning it.

but my first question is this. do you get Friend Requests from people you hardly now ? like people from high school that were friends of friends and you only knew their name, and them in passing.

i keep getting these. lots of people knew who i was, but didn't know me. but now they want to be my friend. i'm like wth. i think they just want to up there count. i'm not like that.

When you sign up and enter data like your high school and year of graduation, or college, or hometown, facebook automatically alerts those with similar data and prompts them with "You may know" with your name and picture. Just click ignore and dismiss the friend requests from people you do not want to be friends with. They will not get notified that you refused the request.

Yes you will get friend requests from all kinds of people. You can simply ignore them. You do not have to friend everyone who sends a request. I only friend family members.

You can also go into your security setting and set up so only friends can see your info. That way only people you have friended can see what you post.

I get a few friend requests here and there from people I barely know. I tend to ignore them unless I actually want to re-connect with these people.

It's up to you who you accept. Just figure out the kinds of people you want to see in your newsfeed, and ignore everyone else.

You will also get complete strangers friend requests in facebook. Just not accept them and if they send requests again and again, just block them. There are lots of security settings in facebook.

I have had a ton of people request to be my friend on Facebook because we somehow played the same game on there (one of those Farmville clones) that was a little awkward to be honest with you. But I would not accept anyone that you do not know.

I think there's a problem with FB and "ghost" users...not sure what the term would be. But basically folks out there create fake accounts to build a list of friends...maybe for spamming or whatever.

If you don't accept their friend request it shouldn't affect you. Also don't accept anything from friends of friends or public.

I've never been able to understand why anyone would ever use facebook. I guess I just don't get putting your personal information on the internet.

My FB feed is mostly news and sport sites. It's like skimming the headlines of a news paper. I have family and friends mixed in too but if they're not close then I don't accept the invite....
