Now hold on, before you moan, "Not another Facebook topic," I don't think this direct topic about Facebook has been discussed before. We've talked about getting dumped on Facebook, etc. and the relationship status, showing affection or not on Facebook, but what about being rejected and/or approved to be friends on the list in the first place before any of the other Facebook drama happens?
Facebook may not seem like a big deal to some people, but it is for those who frequently use it, whether they like to admit this or not.
Whenever you meet someone new and after a night of fun, isn't it your first instinct to get their number but also search for them on Facebook? Doesn't it irk you when people claim that they supposedly "don't" have Facebook but then you search them and their name plus default profile picture is obviously right there?
Or how about they say they never get on it much but their page is public and you can see constant activity on it?
It's a great way to see if they're telling the truth about being single or not. One time I met a guy at the bar who acted like he was into me. When I added him on Facebook and he actually accepted, I saw he was in a relationship with this girl. Or better yet, they tell you to friend request them, and it takes them a "long" time to approve it and then they don't approve it at all yet they tell you to call them?
Being Facebook approved/denied to me determines whether or not I should call a person. If someone denied my friend request but gave me their number, I wouldn't call them to hang out after that. If you're friends with me in person, why not online, too?
What do you think about Facebook rejection/approval? Do you talk to people in person who have denied you?
On the flip-side, I try not to add people I dislike/don't talk to. I hate Facebook. I wish I weren't so addicted to it.
Has anyone ever lied to you and said they don't have a Facebook, yet you searched them found it?
