Let's just say I'm a fan of global usernames, so I shouldn't be too hard to find on facebook. :wink:

So by username I mean url thing, my name is an actual name. You should be able to figure it out.

EDIT: wait maybe not. But it's vanilla, it's just Qwertyuiopasd, so yeah... if facebook works the way that would make sense, it shouldn't be hard to find me.

I recently joined Facebook and was looking for this thread when I came across this post from a few months ago:

Not on Facebook. I've resisted it so far. I've got a page on the Atheist Nexus, but that's as far as I'm going to go for now.

What's with people sending me friend requests without a little note to let me know who they are? I mean, how hard is it to send a friend request with a note like "I'm Tigger_the_Wing from FSM Discussion. Would you like to be friends here, too?" My real name bears no resemblance to my username here (which is, in fact, the name of my motorcycle).

I'm sure some of those who send unexplained friend requests are people I 'know' from here (shared friends are listed); but few here use their real name, or the same name that they use on Facebook, so how am I supposed to know whether to say yes? :confused:

So, please, if any of you are waiting for me to OK a friend request from you, could you please PM me here or explain yourself on Facebook? I'd hate to think I was snubbing someone I like, but at the same time I worry about random people just trying to get ridiculously huge numbers of 'friends', whether or not they know them from anywhere else! :paranoid:

Not to change the subject, but here's some information on some recent FB changes some of you might not be aware of:
They are not ignoring you. Really. wrote:
FACEBOOK CHANGES
Have you noticed that you are only seeing updates in your newsfeed from the same people lately? Have you also noticed that when you post things like status messages, photos and links, the same circle of people are commenting and every……one else seems to be ignoring you?

Don’t worry, everyone still loves you and nobody has intentionally blocked you. The problem is that a large chunk of your friend/fan list can’t see anything you post and here’s why:

The “New Facebook” has a newsfeed setting that by default is automatically set to show ONLY posts from people who you’ve recently interacted with or interacted the most with (which would be limited to the couple of weeks just before people started switching to the new profile). So in other words, for both business and personal pages, unless your friends/fans commented on one of your posts within those few weeks or vice versa – you are now invisible to them and they are invisible to you!!

HERE’S THE FIX: Scroll down to the bottom of the newsfeed on the homepage and click on “Edit Options”, click on “Show Posts From” and change the setting to “All Of Your Friends and Pages” Note: This is the fix for personal pages but I am unsure of whether or not the business pages are set up the same way.

Simply posting an update about it won’t do any good because lots of your friends/fans already can’t see your posts by default. You’ll either have to send out a message to everyone on your list (which I’m not even sure business pages can do and is a rather tedious method) or post an event explaining the situation like this one and invite your entire fan base and/or friend list. You can also tweet about it hoping that most of your fellow facebookers are also on twitter.
