Scary Facebook Friend Requests

Some of my recent friend requests on Facebook have been quite SCARY:

I accepted this one  . . .

and even this one . . .

but not this one!

UPDATE: Ok I just looked this last guy up and apparently he does a stage production of Charles Spurgeon and does NOT actually look like this all the time. Now he is my friend.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)


  • Ah – now I know where my creepy requests are coming from. As a rule of thumb, I add everyone unless we have no friends in common. Then I send them a note and if they respond, I add them anyway. Should they start say sending out too much spam and pleas for money, I tend to then unfriend them.
