Step: Type the name of the Facebook account you want to check in the search box and hit enter. Look at the gray button next to the Facebook handles. Pending or declined requests have an indication labeled as a sent request. All denied requests have a +1 Add Friend label next to them.
You can also see all your accepted friend requests list on Facebook. Here are the steps to get it done fast: Locate the ‘friends’ tab at the top of your Facebook account and click on it. All your accepted friend requests will appear chronologically on your friends list.
With that being said, it is important to note that all Facebook friend requests have a lifespan of up to 14 days while they automatically disappear without a trace. You or your prospective friend should have accepted it before the lapse of that time span.
Q. How many times can you send a friend request?
The new Facebook policy doesn’t have a clause on the maximum number of friend requests you can send per day. The practical limitation is up to 1000 friend requests. Meaning you can send up to a thousand friend requests on Facebook. Similarly, your account can only have up to 5,000 confirmed friend requests at a time.
Q. Why can’t I find sent Facebook friend requests on the mobile app or web browser?
You can fail to see your friend requests if the recipient has already accepted your request. It could also be due to a violation of Facebook policy violation. You may want to double-check to confirm that all your activities on the platform are in compliance with their User Agreement and Terms and Conditions of use of the social platform. Lastly, the other reason why you can’t seem to find your Facebook friend requests is probably that they have been automatically removed from the platform after the 14 day viability period.
