How to know who’s ignoring your friend request on Facebook
Have you ever received a friend request on Facebook and ignored it, thinking that the sender may not be able to find it. Then you are wrong!
Did you know that Facebook allows you to find out your pending friend requests, with whom you attempted to be friends with on the social network but they chose to ignore your request instead.
Here’s how you can find the people who have ignored you:
Step 1: Log into your Facebook profile page on a desktop and tap the “Friend Requests” icon in the top right-hand of the home page.
Step 2: On clicking the Friend Requests icon, it will load a drop-down menu populated with all of your recent friend requests that you have received, or any Friend suggestions thrown-up by Facebook. Click on “See All” at the bottom to load the complete Friend Requests page.
Step 3: Then, simply click on “View Sent Requests” button at the top of the page to see who have ignored you. It will display the list of your pending requests sent (meaning: ignored).
You can check the same feature on a Facebook mobile app too:
Step 1: Open the Facebook app and log into your Facebook profile.
Step 2: Tap the Requests icon in the bottom left of the screen. Once you click this, it will load a menu of your Friend Requests and people you may know.
Step 3: Scroll to the bottom of this list and click See All. This will take you to a new screen that has options listed below the icons across the top of the screen.
Step 4: Click on the Outgoing icon, which is on the very right hand side of these icons. On clicking this, it will display all of your friend requests that have been sent and not accepted yet (ignored).
Basically, the list ends up showing people who either don’t use their Facebook anymore, or someone you want to be friends with but the other person is not interested.
If you are interested in checking out the feature, then prepare to be rejected. A word of advice: This feature is not for the weak hearted.
