Internet Related How to block people from adding you as a friend on Facebook?

I'm getting at least 140 friend requests everyday. Mostly from creepy-looking pervs who are obsessed with sex cam/sex chat. It's even worse when its from old men. It was funny at first, but now, its just irritating. The time I spend deleting the requests is time wasted. Anyone know of a way I can remove the 'Add as Friend' option temporarily? Thanks

Control who can add you as a friend from the "Connecting on Facebook" section of your Privacy Settings page. To get there, follow these steps:

1. Choose the "Privacy Settings" option in the Account drop-down menu at the top of any Facebook page.
2. Select "View settings" in the "Connecting on Facebook" section.
3. Change the setting for "Send you friend requests."

If the problem is too out of hand, then disable the search for your name for a while. Go to Privacy Settings > Connecting on FacebooK > Search for u in Facebook > Options.

Keep it to "Friends only" for a while. It makes you untraceable for random searches.

Hope this helps

You should also report them to fb - they are not very fast but try to get rid of them

You can also block individual people from viewing your account period. Go to their profile page, scroll down and on the left hand side, under friends or family you'll see Report/Block This Person. Click it, then check the Block box at the bottom and click continue.

remove the interests from your page so that they don't find you? or any of the above suggestions of removing ability to friend request etc.

not that it's too reassuring, but Facebook has some protections in place where friend requesting or sending too many private messages at once results in a warning and requirement to validate that they are real people by captcha. if you report the people who friend request you as not knowing you, the 2 reports may result in Facebook taking action (like banning them and potentially their IP).

Maybe it is time for you to switch to Google+, which has the edge to create group.

Default Re: How to block people from adding you as a friend on Facebook?

There are many possible ways how to block people from adding you on facebook. Some of the steps were already suggested above so I'll add the others I know.

1. Go to Privacy Settings > How to connect (Edit Settings: Who can look up your profile by name choose FRIENDS) (Who can send you friend request choose FRIENDS OF FRIENDS) (Who can send you facebook message choose FRIENDS) > Done

2. Go to Privacy Settings > Block people and app (Manage Blocking: Block people in advanced so that they'll never know you exist on facebook.

3. Also try to limit people who can post and tag you. As much as possible, try to choose your FRIENDS only.
