Why I can’t send friend request on Facebook?

Almost all of you know that you can have up to 5000 friends on Facebook. Though, sometimes not all the people we send the request would accept it. In this case, there are three scenarios:

  • They decline the request, and it goes back to the normal add friend.
  • They report it as spam, and we cannot add friends anymore.
  • They do no action. The request will be requested.

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to see who has reported you unless you search for them, and you could not find them. So, it is likely that they have reported you, not to add them anymore.

If you send the request and check again and see it in add friend, they have declined it. You can still send the message and introduce yourself or respect their privacy.

If you want to know how many people you have sent your requests, it is easily possible from Facebook data. Fortunately, Facebook is big enough to store all of your data in the account, and you find them where you need it.


Facebook is of great help for those who want to expand their connections, or find new friends. it is also one of the main platforms for all kind of businesses especially small and medium sized.
