It's really none of facebooks business whether someone knows someone else or not. Who others know is their own private business. Asking people if they know someone or not is an invasion of privacy. It needs to stop....

If someone does not want to friend someone else on facebook all they have to do is delete the request... There is no need to block anyone for sending a Friend Request.

To:
Facebook
Stop blocking people for sending friend requests.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I have to say that the facebook ban on sending friend requests is completely ridiculous. All people have to do is click "delete". Why punish someone for trying to find new friends? Its gotten out of hand. Facebook needs to stop this.

      Facebook cannot be called "social media" if it does not allow for the making of new friends.

      It is totally an invasion of privacy and reasonableness that Facebook encourages everyone to use Facebook and then has stupid, ridiculous rules it imposes.
