The other side of Facebook

A couple of days ago I received a friend request over the facebook, I didn't recognize the name but on looking at the mutual friends I found alot of the people I know. I did accept this person on my friends list, thinking that he/she is an old classmate.
Within the following 2 days his/her friends list was full of around 100 people.
Today that person started a group for one sole reason: Attacking a newly married couple, this couple happen to be amongst our best friends.

Now we are deleting this person from our lists & reporting her/him and the group. Just to stop this nonsense.

What really surprised me is how easily we could be deceived over this facebook. All of my friends who had added this person, did so for the same reason I did. They thought it's someone common.

How clever are you??!!! It's only a matter of days and you'll be coming down.

Common or not, if I don't recognise the person from his/her picture, I ignore the request. It's either that or I send a message asking who it is - only if they've got more than 3 friends in common.

Precautions, precautions, precautions.

I don't know why, this is the only time I do this. I usually reject lots of requests, even of people I know but are somehow distant.

Yalla mosh mohem, this too shall pass.
