Discover YOUR Facebook ‘rejection’ list: How to access the secret registry of everyone who has rejected your friend request
While many believe that one friend in real life is worth more than a dozen online, there is still competition for the largest list of acquaintances on the internet.
But whether your account is family-only or your friends have a list of hundreds, chances are you’ve sent a request to someone who they didn’t accept.
And now, thanks to a secret page, you can see all the people who have declined your invitation to connect, from the moment your account was created.
The so-called “rebuff” list has sparked a wave of panic among users of the social media giant, as it reveals all the people who have snubbed you and exactly how long they’ve been ignoring you.
Now there is no way to escape your shameful past, which can be revealed in just four simple steps.
The average number of Facebook friends is around 338 and there are an estimated 81 million fake profiles on the platform.
After opening your friend requests, you will be able to see the sent requests in the upper left corner
To access this feature from a desktop, first click on friends in the upper left corner of the screen.
It is usually displayed below your profile button, which displays your name and profile picture.
Once you have opened the friends tab, you need to click on the friend requests, which can be found at the top left of the screen.
The small writing once you’ve clicked shows that you were going to find the list of rejections intimidating.
If you click ‘View Sent Requests’, Facebook will display your dreaded list of sent requests.
You can scroll at your leisure and examine the names of all the people who have turned you down or never responded to your request.
If you can handle it, canceling a request will allow you to send a new invitation to the same person and bring their name back to the top of your friend requests.
But if you’ve been rejected once, chances are they won’t accept your application the second time either.
If you’re on a smartphone, the viewing process is slightly different.
Facebook allows people to send friend requests to people they know by clicking ‘add friend’, as shown on the left side of the screen
Here is the view sent requests link portal which will display all the people who have not accepted your friend request
You may want to cover your eyes when you see the list of people who have declined your friend request.
Go to your Facebook app and then to the menu at the bottom right of the screen.
Click on Friends and then on Requests in the upper right corner.
Once the page has opened, you will need to click on the three dots in the upper right corner, next to the search icon.
A tab will appear at the bottom of the screen and you will then need to tap View Sent Requests.
Once you’ve opened it, the page will tell you how many requests you’ve rejected and how long ago you sent them.
Fortunately, for both desktop and smartphone users, you can remove these ignored requests, which means you no longer have to suffer through brutal rejections.
And you’ll never have to tell anyone how many there were.
