Single on Facebook
Facebook, since it was launched to the world a little more than half a decade ago has given us the opportunity to make friends with anyone from any corner of the world. A student living in USA can make friends with a professor in China. Or a celebrity can keep in touch with millions of their fans through Facebook. Facebook has also given lonely people a chance to not be loners anymore. It seems like it is working out pretty well for a lot of people that have no social lives outside of Facebook.
A stranger guy like most guys, types a girl’s name that sounds nice. For instance Amber sounds like a nice name. A single guy types the name in the search bar of the world famous Facebook. Many different Ambers show up in the search results. Now some look pretty and some are average. Obviously the eyes go towards the most attractive ones. The guy, who is doing the search clicks on a name and then likes the profile, sends a friend request to a complete stranger, then, he clicks on a couple more names and send them requests too. Keeping in mind they are all strangers to him and vice versa.
Facebook has a policy that says not to add someone they don’t know. People add them anyway hoping for the request to get accepted. If the requests get accepted, that’s great. Good luck to the hopeful guy. But, on the other hand, if those requests get rejected then Facebook is notified of this. As a result, Facebook disables the request sender’s ability to send more requests to more strangers for a few days or in some cases they even suspend the account. This might look like an evil thing to the hopeful romantics, i.e. Mark Zuckerberg’s plan to break the hearts of lots of guys. This is actually a good penalty for users who abuse the policy that Facebook has set for its users. Every law should be followed, if not, then there should be consequences.
It’s not because Facebook is against people adding random strangers, but it’s basically trying to keep repetitive offenders out for a few days. If someone were to get rejected by three people that he doesn’t know anything about. Then obviously he is a disturbance to Facebook users. There are simpler ways than just adding random females, and waiting for them to accept the friend request. A guy can send a message to the girl he wants to add and ask permission to add them. This will most probably raise the chances of a girl actually giving him permission to do so. Women tend to ignore and decline requests of stranger guys on Facebook. This is because it is always done the wrong way.
Even though, Facebook might be a bit hard on offenders. There are better ways to stay out of the way of Facebook patrol. The reason this social network was launched was to help people socialize with the friends they already have or want to make. It is possible to make new friends, girlfriends or a boyfriend for that matter. At the end of the Facebook experience, it is totally up to the Facebookee to do it the right way. To the guys of Facebook, request wisely and let’s hope they click accept.
If you’re a girl, be extra careful before deciding to go out with someone you have no idea of (or no mutual friends with). It might be a good idea to do a basic background check on him first (using these services is a good way to get you started).
