Today, one of my Facebook friends posted in frustration, “How do I get these men from Africa to stop sending me friend requests?” Another friend was quick to offer the following solution and after confirming it, I thought I would share it. Are you getting unusual friend requests? Try this:
Under the Facebook menu, click on “Settings”. On the Settings Page, click Privacy. You really should review all these settings, but to answer the question at hand, look for the section called, “How People Find and Contact You”
Click on the “Edit” button next to “Who can send you friend requests?” You will see that there are two options. “Everyone” or “Friends of Friends.” Choose accordingly!
