    Default Friend requests

    Hi Friends!

    I have a stooopid question. I've been getting friend requests from some of you, and if I happen to notice then I do accept them.

    However, I don't really know what a friend request actually does on PG. I have a Facebook account because my sister said I had to have one, but I don't do a thing on it, so I don't know what friend requests do there, either. I do computer tech support all day, so aside from ogling pearls, I don't do much else on the computer.

    But getting back to PG. What does a friend request do here?

    Thanks.

    Ah, OK. Thank you. I obviously haven't done much with privacy settings.

    I am not sure either so I don't send out fr here. FB is another story though. I don't believe I have any of that info filled out so I'm not much fun to check out.

    I don't get many friends requests so the notification caught my eye, its an odd request from someone I don't know and never communicated with here.

    I've not been on much so I don't know who this person is but it seems they've only posted two or three times...anyway their "Friend" request can't be deleted...the notification seems to linger. I've not bothered to look much into this but I noticed it is still there.

    Most of my requests come when someone eager to push their business joins the forum. It doesn't really have a function in the way that FB does.

    I think I friended a few people way back after chatting with them, but eventually I stopped because it didn't seem to serve a purpose. FB is totally different!

    What happens if you delete a "friend"? Do they get a notification that they were deleted? I'm wondering because I approved some "friend" requests for people who haven't even been online in years.

    Anyone want to find out? I'll ask to friend you, you okay me, then delete me.
    BlackPearlDude, how about you?
