I love to connect with people when using social media. One of my favourite ways to do this is to include a message when I send someone a friend request. It’s a great idea, but I realised there may be people that would love to do this but just don’t know how.
So here’s how you do it…
NOTE: Facebook removed this functionality some time ago. You can now have to send a message separately to the step to Add a Friend on Facebook
In Facebook, select the Add as Friend button for the person you wish to add
Facebook will load a window asking you to Send the Request. On the left of the Send Request button is a small note “Add a personal message…”
Click the text “Add a personal message…” .
A new box will load in the same window titled Message:
Add the message you wish to include with your Facebook friend request then click the blue Send request button.
Facebook will load a Request Sent box and your Friends request and message will be delivered to the person you wish to be friends with.
Try adding Messages to your Facebook requests and see if it helps connect with people. I’d love to hear how you go!
