How to find everyone who has ignored your Facebook friend requests
YOU’VE probably sent loads of Facebook friend requests over the years – and now you can see who blanked you.
It’s easy to find a list of your pending friend requests, sent out to would-be pals who didn’t give you the time of day.
And now you can take back control of your social life, by cancelling those unrequited friend requests.
How to see sent Facebook friend requests
If you’ve sent friend requests and they’ve been accepted, that person will be in your friends list.
But Facebook also keeps track of all the friend requests you’ve sent out that have yet to OK’d.
It’s possible your would-be pal hasn’t seen your request, but it’s also likely that simply ignored it too.
You can check your sent friend requests on both the mobile and desktop versions of Facebook[/caption]
The easiest way is to use the following link, which should take you directly to your sent Facebook friend requests:
If that doesn’t work, you can navigate to the page directly.
On the desktop page (i.e. on your laptop, PC or Mac), click the Friend Requests icon at the top of the page.
A drop-down menu will appear with People You May Know suggestions.
Click the View All button near the bottom of the list.
Then at the top of the page, you should see a link to View Sent Requests – just below the title of the page.
Click that and you’ll see a list of all the people you’ve sent friend requests to that still haven’t been accepted.

On mobile (e.g. your iPhone app), go to the Friends tab on your Facebook app – it looks like two people standing next to each other.
Then tap the plus-sign icon in the top right corner.
There’ll be a bar of tabs along the top of your screen.
The furthest one on the right will be called Outgoing – tap it.
There you’ll see all of your sent friend requests on Facebook.
Now you can start questioning how you managed to annoy the people on this list so much they didn’t even want to be your virtual friend.
And if you’ve got any five-year-old requests, it might be time to cancel them…
