So does anybody ever get friend requests from chicks that just have a bunch of pictures of themselves in bikinis and lingerie? And like they seem super slutty, but add friends who are all like trashy dudes from Mexico or trashy American dudes who think having a fast car is impressive to women.

Like really, what's up with this shit? Is it REALLY 16-20 year old bitches who want attention (that seems a little unlikely) or is it some weird dude in his basement who is trying to sell you something (that seems way more likely)? Or what do you think? I believe they must have some endgame, but I can't figure out what that it.

For the record, I never except the request if there isn't a vague chance I might know them from some event or something.

I know at least some of you have gotten these friend requests and thought, "Yeah, you're hot, but who the **** are you? I doubt you're a real person." So yeah, anytheories? I can't help but be curious: how exactly are they selling shit? (and what are they selling.

I assume you're referring to the guys that add them, and yes that seems obvious. I mean, it's some attractive young girl offering "friendship." That's some great marketing, but what's the product. Are people capitalizing on this? And how?

I always thought they were just fake accounts? Unless there are actually these kinds of people out there. My faith in humanity just dropped further.

well you see, some girls grow up without a strong male rolemodel in their lives so they add you on facebook because they feel an emptiness deep inside, a hole that needs to be filled if you catch my drift

Yeah, Facebook messages like that are so weird.

Not like Tatjana, the beautiful Ukranian UGer who sent me a message pledging her undying love. I think we're engaged now.

Haven't had many on Facebook, but I do get occasional emails in my spambox from 'girls' in Russia. Usually saying how they are looking for love, and talking as if they've already found it with me even though I've never replied.

Always assumed they were spambots, but I did reply to one and she's been talking back - actually answering my email albeit with fairly generic stuff that's probably cut & pasted from other emails. She's also been sending some nice pictures that get more adventurous each time

Yeah, fake accounts would never happen on UG!

I think it's funny that girls I actually know put pictures up that make them look hot, but in real life they're not hot at all. They seem to think they're as hot as their profile pic

It's called "metrics" it's the same thing when you see the "Like if you can see the picture" or 'Comment to see what happens" crap. They are raising their likes and comments and/or friends. There are companies out there who will buy the profile after the numbers are brought up high enough, then when that company posts about things, it will pop up in your feed if you've got it set to "Most Popular". They don't have to pay facebook for ads, and their stuff shows up in your feed.

I had this happen once last semester. The girl wasn't super hot, but still pretty good looking. I thought, "who is this, and why did she add me?"

so then I asked two of my friends who actually accepted her friend request and they said they didn't know her, so I was like lolnope.

AHA! and there's the answer I was looking for (also the one above it). I knew there had to be some sort of profitable endgame there.

^that's it.

I'm pretty much ready for a mod to close this thread because it had sufficiently met all of my needs.

Unless anyone has seen any more ridiculous things like that.

Yeah they're just exploiting those people that feel that having 192832839 facebook friends makes you super popular and awesome and not a basement dweller.

Having accepted one of these people out of curiosity, they wasted no time in sharing hundreds of pics of "offers" and messaging me asking for sponsorship and shizzle like that. Needless to say they got reported, deleted and blocked pretty quickly haha!!

I got added by one of these accounts once. I found the brief message exchange that we had:

Me: Hey there, I don't think I know you, do I? Your Facebook looks kind of...fake.
Skank: Sorry, I guess I don't know you. What do you mean fake? LOL!

The account was banned / deleted the next day.
