I have a Facebook etiquette question to pose. Different people use Facebook differently. My rule is to use Facebook to keep in touch with people I know personally, and only very rarely do I make any exception to that rule. This leaves me with a dilemma when I get friend requests from people who are “friends of friends”, but who I have never met in “meatspace” (good to have a Neal Stephenson quote on a Friday morning!). I love meeting new people and making connections with others who share my interests, but I hesitate when it comes to approving friend requests for people I do not know personally. Consequently I have a pile of requests sitting in my inbox, and I feel like I’m in a quandry.
What do you do in this type of situation?
