Facebook is introducing Expiring Friend Requests

Written by Sarmad Gardezi March 27, 2018

Currently, the feature is under testing phase and appearing for only a test group. However, it will soon be rolling out for the entire user base of the social media network. The feature will provide a way for users to manage unwanted friend requests. It is essential for Facebook to put a filter on friend requests as user behavior suggests that people stop responding to even legitimate requests once their friend requests queue are filled with spam. This feature will help users see the requests they want to accept which in turn will grow their social graph.

The feature will also provide a perk to social media influencers and public figures by limiting the number of pending friend requests. Facebook only allows up to 5000 friends and only a limited number of pending requests. The sum of current friends and pending requests cannot exceed 5000. Therefore, the feature will make it less likely to hit the pending friend request maximum by cleaning up every request fortnightly.
