What do you think about accepting strangers on FB?

I'm wondering if I should accept friend requests from GIRLS that I don't personally know on FB. I've never accepted strangers before but these girls are from a closed group in which I'm also a member and since I have no friends (outside of family and cousins) in my home country yet I thought why not, it's nice to have some friends from my country, but I'm not sure if it's a bad decision or not.

  • Lol I don't see much use in it actually if I don't spoke to you in anyway or am in involved with you or a group in any way do not add me lol. And since my family is military I am very weary of accepting strangers for very good reason.

    That' why I have only 127 friends on FB most of them are either people I know, have known for years or are like the Husbands or wives as people I do know but I do have a few people I don't know at all because I'm gamer and I do clans and stuff.

    but if your not me with connections and stuff like that were people could potentially use that friendship to try and gain information, military information or information about your family were they are deployed etc. Then go for it you don't' have much to lose.

  • I don't add anyone I don't know. I am too paranoid if they are someone who try to stalk me. It happened a few times. My fb is very private and I doubt people can easily search my id unless they know me from someone else. I don't mind adding if I see they have some mutual friends with me.

  • If it is a closed group and you are a member why do you not know them?

      It's a closed group with 130 000 girls haha basically a girl had an idea of adding all young Tunisian girls in a group and I got invited to the group and now some girls are adding me ^^

    • 2mo

      Maybe I can get invited to an exclusive closed group of Americans.

  • It depends, some of them might be nice people who just want to make friends all over the world, but... on the other hand, some of them might be fake profiles, or hackers who want to steal your personal information (email, password etc).

  • facebook is no different than twitter or instagram. DO NOT use your real name or addresss or give any real details on facebook. seriously you should know that. you can talk to strangers and make online friends on facebook. just be safe an dont give out personal info. i have facebook. and i add strangers all the time i follow over 100 people. my name on facebook is phillip anthony and my user name is WorldTurnBlack look at me on facebook if you want

  • Members with whom i get along with in my closed groups are all veterans, service members, policemen, firefighters and Paramidgets. All stand up people, i have no problem adding from those groups... others however i tend to stay away from.

  • It sounds like you have at least some sort of association to them, so that's a plus. I'm vehemently against just adding everyone and anyone. I find these people with hundreds or thousands of "friends" to be lame.

  • Nah I wouldn't really add anyone I don't actually know especially when you get random requests without asking you first by messGe at least. Sounds funky

      you can create a new group with limited access... if it's someone you don't know, put them in there

  • When I was on FB, I would never do it.

  • I only add people whom I know, which is why my friends list has fewer than 100 people.

    Don't add strangers.

  • There are "girls" who are actually guys pretending to be girls. If you don't know them then you really have no idea who they are or what their intentions are. I don't accent requests from people I don't know. They would have access to your info like where you live, your family, your house of worship, your school, work, etc. Bad idea

  • Nup, I don't. I have too much information on my Facebook --like what school I go to etc.
    Just checked my friend count though... ayyy I have 740 friends! Or rather, people I know lol. Guess that's what happens when you move schools.
