Add friends on Facebook (Send friend request to other members)

After Facebook sign up, you can add new friends to your profile: either people you already know, who are Facebook members, or people you come across on Facebook and have similar interests. In this tutorial, we will show you how to request a friendship and add a friend, or "send a friend suggestion" as many call it; the next tutorial explains how to "unrequest" a friendship (cancel a sent friend request). You will also learn what happens when you try to add a friend when we go over accepting or rejecting friend requests.
