Check out this quick screenshot and then go into your own facebook page and verify you have no hidden requests.
What is this? I always manage to get caught off-guard with another facebook privacy issue and this one I could not explain with a Google search. The facebook help center was of no help either. It’s the facebook hidden friend request. How do you do this? Why would you? Why do facebook friend requests need to be hidden and why are there no notifications in facebook or the facebook iPhone app as a heads up?
Should Facebook Make This a Security issue?
So this is what’s stumping me. It’s a hidden friend request on facebook that does not initiate any alerts alerting you that you have a friend request waiting. In the meantime, until you do something with the request, the requestor account has access to your profile and maybe just enough personal info to steal a password or two. This should really be a security issue.
In this case the request came from Belgium. Not sure why. It’s just another heads up from yours truly because I really doubt facebook is responding to my request for more info. If anyone has more info about the facebook hidden friends request leave em in the comments below.
