Someone has added me as their friend.

I haven't heard of them - they maybe someone on here mind & I don't know the surname.

Would you add them have a peek at their profile then if none the wiser contact & or delete

or something else?

Could you have a look at your friends on Facebook and see if he/she is on their list of friends - that might give you an idea?

You can add them and if you dont know them then delete them...or ask who they are ? I am sure they wont be offended


Julie Report 3 Aug 2008 18:15

I didn't think they could just add you, you have to accept and if you haven't then they can't look

Oh yeah providing you are locked

Well mine's of me mother, and no begger has noticed - lol

I've had some really strange sounding names ask to be friends, but quite frankly I dont accept them unless I know of them (if that makes any sense).

send a mail to all of your friends asking who ???? is

then you may get your answer.

If you send them a message they can see your profile for a period of time which you may not want
