Every day for the last week or so, I have been receiving a friend request from people I have never known or heard of. Has anybody else been receiving similar facebook requests ? Of course I just delete them but just wondering why this is suddenly happening and what the point of it all is.

Facebook is still a bit strange to me. I get what I think are requests from folk I know and when I accept it says I have sent the request. May explain why I have hundreds of folks I don’t know as well

Regular scam posts.... Frequently using pictures of young attractive females. Accepting the request can lead to having your profile hacked.

Unfortunately there are several companies I deal with who use 'Face ache' as their main form of communication this means I need to be a member or loose out. :mad: although saying that it can be useful, we got back one of our hens by posting on 'Face ache'. I have received loads of friends requests from either people doing selling or scammers pretending to be young women.

My son is a computer professional. He won't touch Basefook , Crapshat or similar.. When his students ask, " How can we contact you, then ?" He replies .. " Send me a postcard, via the college , that's more secure ". When relatives ask me to be Friends.. I tell them I've no time for any more friends, thanks. I'm too busy being kind to my numerous relatives.

Sorry to hear that your Aunty died, Trev.. What a character she was.. " Never missed the spittoon, in 83 years ", you once told me.

I go on facebook everyday, the only groups I am on are cardmaking and crochet but I do keep in touch with friends (proper friends) and family, I ignore requests, so I enjoy using facebook.

I've learnt a lot about motor homing and baking on FB forums but I keep personal info to a minimum and only have friends i know and family on my privacy settings. The local FB page for the village also helped with info about the recent flood warnings. Anything iffy and or nasty is ignored and or deleted. I never put pictures of children on the internet unless I can mask who they are.
