Although you’re thrilled to find out your mom has finally joined Facebook, you’re kind of flustered that your Facebook friend request is taking long to approve. There are a number of reasons that could cause the delay, the least of being she simply doesn’t like you in that way. Being patient with the Facebook friend request that is taking too long can take away some of the awkwardness of your next Thanksgiving dinner.
If you’ve noticed that the people you’ve sent the friend request to log on but the item is still not approved, there could be a few reasons. First, the Facebook friend request is taking long because they simply haven’t approved it yet. This doesn’t mean that they don’t want to be friends because you will receive a notification if your request is denied. The friend request could still be pending or the user was quickly on for a different reason.
- “my computers been acting up so not sure if this went through”
- “got an error message from Facebook so thought I’d resend this”.
You won’t look like quite as big of a stalker with these few extra precautions. The main thing is that when you friend request is taking too long, try not to jump to any conclusions.
