4. Finding and Adding Friends > Responding to Friend Requests

Responding to Friend Requests

When someone tries to add you to her friend list, two things happen: Facebook sends you an email invitation and posts a little notice on your Home page telling you that someone wants to be your friend. At that point, you’ve got two choices: You can confirm the request or ignore it, either on Facebook or right in your email program.

Confirming Email Requests

If you’re the type of person who checks his email every hour (or every 5 minutes) but only logs onto Facebook every couple of days, you’ll want to handle friend requests from inside your email program. Here’s how:

  1. Look in your email inbox for a message with the subject “[Somebody] wants to be friends on Facebook.”

  2. Open the message and click the green Confirm Friend button or the confirmation link. Doing so whisks you to the Facebook page where you can confirm your friendship as explained in the next section.
