I've got a slew of unanswered friend requests on Facebook. It's not because I forgot about them. It's not because I don't care. On the contrary: I'm reminded of them every time I open my Facebook account, and I do care, which is why I'm writing this post. It's just that I have no context.
I have no problem with accepting friend requests from people I haven't met or don't really know. In fact, I've written about it before, in a post titled (appropriately enough): How I Think About My Social Networks.
If you'd like to friend me, the only thing I ask you to do is to identify how you know me and why you'd like to connect.
So how about it? Feel like friending me up? Go for it. But do my a favor and just tell me why.
How about you? Do you like to know where these requests are coming from?
