You may not be able to add someone as a friend if: They haven’t accepted your friend request yet. You may have already sent them a friend request. Check if the friend requests you’ve sent are still pending.
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).
Can you make it so someone can’t friend request you on Facebook?

Go to Account Settings » Under Privacy. Set “Who can send me friend requests” to Friends of Friends so the “Add Friend” button won’t appear on people who don’t have any friends from your own friends list.
How do you know if someone blocked your friend request on Facebook?
Look at the gray button next to the person’s name. If the button reads “Friend Request Sent,” the person has not yet accepted or declined your friend request. If the button reads “+1 Add Friend,” the person denied your friendship request.
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.
Can someone block you from sending a friend request?
Select “Friends of Friends” next to “Who can send you friend requests?” Facebook does not allow you to completely block friend requests, but limiting them to friends of friends blocks most strangers from sending them.
Why am I all of a sudden getting a lot of Facebook friend requests 2020?
The influx of friend requests for verified users is “likely due to recent search changes” on the platform, Facebook says, which were intended to more prominently surface search results for verified accounts over unverified ones. Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.
How do you unblock a friend request on Facebook?
Tap in the top right of Facebook.
- Scroll down and tap Settings.
- Scroll down to Audience and Visibility and tap Blocking.
- Tap Unblock next to the name of the person you want to unblock.
- Tap Unblock to confirm that you’d like to unblock the person.
The person might have blocked and then unblocked you or just denied your request, which can cause the issue that you see no add friend button on their profile anymore. A person has reached 5000 friends limit and now cannot add more. You blocked the person before. Blocking a person on Facebook will unfriend them too.
