From your most recent Facebook searches to your sent friend requests, Facebook lets you manage almost all the activities you perform on the platform. A few days back, I thought to check out how many friend requests I’ve sent till now from my Facebook and cancel the ones that are not relevant or mistakenly sent.
Yes, that’s possible that while browsing someone’s Facebook profile, we unknowingly send a friend request mistakenly. When after some years, I managed to view sent friend requests on Facebook, I was surprised because there were friend requests sent from my Facebook account to unknown people. I’m pretty sure that those happened by mistake and I canceled all of them.
Initially, I was confused that if it is possible to view sent friend requests on Facebook or not. I thought it can only be possible by visiting the profile of the person to whom I sent the friend request. But, no, you don’t actually need to remember the people you sent the friend requests because Facebook does it well.
