I just joined a few days ago and the topic is true. John (not his real name) is my wife's nephew and got killed in a road accident 2 1/2 years ago.
I've therefore come to the conclusion that most folks wanting me to be their friend are simply a computer algorithm, that my feeling bad by not answering their plea would hurt their feelings and risk our friendship, is not founded on reality.
On another topic, one question that I have is: if I search for a person on Facebook does that person somehow learn that I did a search for him?
My son, who is a Facebook expert, of sorts, says no.
What say you?
