The “Add Friend” button is not showing on Facebook either because the user has restricted their privacy settings, they denied your friend request, or they marked it as spam. Facebook allows its users to control their privacy settings such as who can see your activity, and who can find/contact you.
You already sent a friend request, and it’s either still pending or the recipient deleted it. Now the Add Friend button doesn’t show up, so you can’t send a new friend request. If your request was deleted, Facebook has blocked you from sending that person another friend request for one whole year.
Why can’t I send a friend request to someone on Facebook?
If you’re currently not able to send friend requests, this is usually because: You recently sent a lot of friend requests. Your past friend requests have gone unanswered. Your past friend requests were marked as unwelcome.
Why can’t I find someone on Facebook when I know they have an account?
You’ve blocked them. The person you’re looking for may have limited their privacy settings or blocked you. Sometimes people forget that they’ve limited their settings. If you still can’t find one of your friends, ask them to look at their privacy settings.
The first reason why the “Add Friend” button is not showing, has disappeared, or missing on Facebook is because the user has restricted their privacy settings. In the Facebook app/website, users can control their privacy settings. One of the privacy settings is to limit who can send you friend requests.
If you don’t see the “Add as Friend” button, it’s because the person you’re trying to befriend has adjusted her privacy settings to block friend requests (see Chapter 14 for details).
How can you tell if someone blocked you on Facebook?
To check if someone has blocked you on Facebook Messenger, try sending a message to their profile. If you get an error message that reads “This person isn’t available at the moment,” then the person has either blocked you or deactivated their account.
What does it mean when you send a friend request and it says message?
If it says “friend request sent” and “message” on the person’s profile, then the person has yet to decide. If it says “message” only, then the person has said both “not now” AND “Mark as spam” to the request.
Can someone tell if I look at their Facebook page a lot?
No, Facebook doesn’t tell people that you’ve seen their profile. Third-party apps are also unable to provide this functionality. If you come across an app that claims to offer this ability, please report the app.
Can I know who searched me on Facebook?
No, Facebook doesn’t let people track who views their profile. Third-party apps also can’t provide this functionality. If you come across an app that claims to offer this ability, please report the app.
