I think they need to get a life. I don't add them if I don't them.

I think it's the internet and doesn't really show for anything. There's a chance they could be interested, I suppose, but as much a chance as anyone else adding you on facebook being interested. Facebook friend =/= real friend. People add random people all the time.

Is it taboo or something? It's just facebook, I stopped requesting new people on facebook like a year ago.

Depends what theyre intentions are... If they honestly want to meet people... Maybe ok... If its more sinister... Certainly not!

I'm guessing that it's not really YOU who they're interested in, they just like your profile picture, you know?

I recently met a guy through my best friend and he's been randomly adding and talking to her friends. When she asked him why he's doing that, he said because "they looked cute".

I, personally, am NOT interested in him (esp of the way he's acting), that's not why I'm asking. I was just wondering what others thought

I don't like FB period.

I think it's creepy in general.

IGNORE bottom.
I usually don't add them unless I've talked to them before in real life.

I'm one of them, but I only add girls that are in my classes or whom I am connected to in other areas of my life.

I don't add them. If I don't recognize the name I directly hit the ignore button.

And at least FB doesn't allow people who are not on your friends list to see your profile and albums. So thats a good thing I guess.

At one point I had like 10 requests a day from random men from Asia adding me ... it freaks me out quite a lot tbh. I just ignore them, I don't add people I don't know.

I honestly can't say that it bothers me much; I've never really paid attention to who is friends with who on any site. I wouldn't accept adds from them, though, if they randomly added me. I'd only accept an add if I knew them or had intentions of talking to them (which is rare, if I don't know them or haven't talked to them before).

I don't add people unless I know them or we have mutual friends.

Agreed! It is creepy, an I think everyone whose got it does a bit of unintentional stalking whether it be through photos or simply following someone's life in status updates. However when you sign up your kind of opening up a window into your life, in exchange for looking into other peoples...

I don't even use facebook but I thought I'd put my opinion forward anyway. I think people are free to do what they want really but in my opinion I would probably hit the ignore button unless I had spoken to them before or we had mutual friends. :)

Re: Guys who randomly add girls on facebook
 
If a random guy tries to friend me I might accept I might ignore depending a lot on there profile pic, but if it deals with my sister and someone I know but she doesn't and they try to friend her it just annoys me. But you can just unfriend them if you don't want to be there fb friend.

I don't use Facebook, EVERRRRR

That's why facebook has an ignore button. Myspace I think is the worse..

Ha, that's one of the reasons I've just stopped using all social networking sites. It's just too creepy.

Personally, I think it's a little creepy when random guys try to add me. I always decline the friend request. Like most people said, I won't add anyone unless I actually know them.

I ignore them. I only add people who I know, know of or have mutual friends with.

It doesn't bother me that much, I mean if they are like totally creepy looking or really old i won't add them. But if they are around my age why not? I usually check there facebook to make sure they are like legit. It happens.

just for your saftey, (and it says your 19, so im sure pedos arent that much to worry about for you), but just because a seedy 50 yr old man has created a myspace page with some fake friends and had fake conversations, fake pictures - does not make it legit.

if you don't know them personally and none of your friends do. you cant tell if they are 'legit' short of setting them up with a skype and checking it out - even then, they can still be weird/crazy, they'll just be a crazy whose your age.

Re: Guys who randomly add girls on facebook
 
they annoy me,i message them saying "why have you added me" and some say "because your fit!" i just feel they are a little desperate and need to go out and find some girls in the real world. i mean i met my boyfriend over facebook but thats a different story.

Re: Guys who randomly add girls on facebook
 
I think it's fine. What's wrong with having a banter to a bloke? He might be really interesting.

Saying that, when I used to accept adds from people I didnt know (I don't now, I use FB exclusivley for people i've met and know well) I used to check to see how many girls were on their friends list. Sounds abit weird I know, but some of them had literally several HUNDREDS of girls added onto their accounts and just a handful of guys that they know offline. Thats when you know the guy's just a total loser. Delete time.

Re: Guys who randomly add girls on facebook
 
Unless we have mutual friends or I somewhat know them I won't accept them. I may accept them if they're around my age and live near me as they may know me but I don't know them. This guy John added me the other day on facebook, I didn't have a clue who he was by his name or profile picture, turns out he was in my form class in year 7 and 8 :| oops. Luckily I did accept him :p
