Special Instructions for Friend Requests
That being said.. there are some basic rules that you want to follow.
1) When you are sending friend requests always include a personal message and only send the same message to 5 people before sending a different one. I personally send a different one to everyone that I request, it’s not hard to adjust the messages and make them more personal.
Whenever you’re requesting a friend you should always include a personal message of how you know them or if you know one of their friends mention that name and what kind of business or reason you’re contacting them.
– Always address the person by name “Hiya John”..
– If you know something about them, always include in the message something positive about it.
– If you have a mutual friend, you can reference them in the message
– If you are a mutual “fan” of a guru, you can reference them in the friend request
– Reference the group that you are both a member of: “hey Sarah! I saw you in The Secret group, I just signed up and would like to be friends so I can network with you“
2) Don’t add too many friends per day.. your new friends aren’t going to be much use to you if you get your account banned.
3) Don’t spam or post your “ad” to people’s walls..it gives a horrible impression of you, you will gain no respect from your new friends, and facebook frowns upon it and will likely ban you. The only place that facebook allows you to advertise is in a group that you’ve created.. so use your groups for that, not as graffiti on people’s walls.
4) Don’t mix personal with business – It’s much easier to keep things straight when you have an all-business or all-personal account.
