“This Friend Request Can’t Be Sent”-another irritating feature by Facebook and how to deal with it!!

Most of the people are on Facebook to make new friends, and I am one of them who loves to send request to random people on facebook.com. But this thing isn’t gonna possible anymore cuz of a new feature to prevent the misuse of Facebook. Obviously this is a good feature specially for those who gets hundreds of useless friend requests every week. But trust me, this feature won’t let you to get connected even with even those whom you know personally. Check out the few reasons why Facebook won’t allow you to send friend request.

No Mutual Friends: If you are trying to send a request to a person who doesn’t have any friend in common with you, then that could be an impossible thing from now on Facebook. As in that case Facebook assumes that you are randomly adding that person.

Send too many Friend Requests? Yes, if you send many friend requests to everyone who’s profile seems interesting ;) then Facebook won’t let you send a request to new profiles even if you know them. You will get the same error message asking that, “Do you know this user personally?”

Too many rejected Friend Requests: Again you cannot send more friend requests if there are many users who declined your friend request.

ERROR MESSAGE:

This Friend Request Can’t Be Sent

This Request Can’t Be Sent
Do you know this user personally? To prevent misuse of Facebook, this request can’t be sent. To learn more, please visit the Help Center. If you believe you’re seeing this message in error, you can report the problem.

POSSIBLE SOLUTION:

If you are getting such type of messages even if you are sending request to the right person i.e whom you know personally then you have to report an error to Facebook. Click on ‘report the problem’ on the popup screen (see the image above). Select option ‘Yes’ and give appropriate reason in comments. They will review your request and you have to wait until your request gets reviewed. :(

UPDATES:

  1. Even you can’t send request to those people, who are appearing in your friend suggestions. What’s the use of suggestions then? :P  [updated-August 16th 2010]

RECOMMENDED FOR YOU: Avoid getting blocked from adding people on Facebook.

        • http://www.musicnlifestyle.com Sauravjit

          That’s because you must have sent too many friend requests from your main account.

  • http://www.thewebtricks.com/ jaganmangat

    i got stuck in this thing one time and only solution for this thing i got was just wait for some weeks and after that you will be allowed to send friend requests again.

    • http://www.musicnlifestyle.com Sauravjit

      Have you reported a problem to facebook or it simply allowed you to send the request? :)

      • http://www.thewebtricks.com/ jaganmangat

        no i didn’t.Just waited and after sometime they allowed.Another key feature i want to tell you is,just go to your edit friends and delete all friends with pending friend requests,this too can help get you out of this prob after a while.[by this way if you say that you will lose your friends whom u requested,for that just bookmark their profiles and after allowed to send requests,again request them accordingly one by one]

    and why some account don’t hv this problem …

    • http://www.musicnlifestyle.com Sauravjit

      Only those account are facing this problem which used to send random friend requests a lot. We’ll publish a working solution as soon as possible.

      • http://www.israelpcdoctor.com Beau

        please do let me know when some kind of hack or work-around is developed for this issue. i’ve been blocked and don’t know for how long (it’s already more than the 2 days they said it would be), and i’ve only sent friend requests to people who i either know personally or with whom i have a substantial number of mutual friends. this is not fair at all.

  • Prophecy 12

    I believe the easiest solution for you would be to send the person a message and ask them to send you a request back. If they really know you it will multiply the odds of completion/ good luck @ try retroshoot at facebook.com

    • http://www.musicnlifestyle.com Sauravjit

      That’s the problem, we don’t send requests to known people :P

    • Muzammil

      dude that doenst work either, even if you have many messages exchanged to that person, you still wont be able to add .. grr .. fb sucks big time .. i dont know who suggested this thing to them ..

  • ali’zrock

    its a big problem that request can’t send plz solve it

  • Johnnyusvols

    So wouldn’t the easiest thing be, if everyone would just go to another site like good old friendster. If their security settings gets annoying, that would be the best solution. Same with youtube. This constant blocking of vids can get so annoying. People, i just say, “there is competition on the market, so don’t stick to one site like glue”. Let us all show them that they are not the only one in the net..

      This is to reduce the number of Fake profiles on fb and trust me this features seriously works!!

  • Ben Smith

    I ‘reported the problem’ over a week ago, and absolutely no response! Insulting enough that Facebook accuses me of spamming, but the fact that they aren’t even responding to this is ridiculous! If they don’t fix this, then in two years time Facebook will be even lower than Friendster is today!

Please try again/This request can’t be sent at this time.” I have noticed that i also can’t get online since then. They tell me”Unable to retrieve logout id.” Can u help me?

    • Himadri Dimri

      Did you see any change in your profile? Like being hacked or something? If that is not the case just wait for some time it will get okay on its own. Report it also.

  • Raysa

    Hy, guys!
    so, I was reading your posts&comments around here.
    First of all, if you receive the message “Do you know this user personally? ….” click the okay button and then click again the “add as friend” button. a new message will appear ‘If you send a request to a stranger, it will be considered spam and your friend request will be blocked temporarily. Please only send this request if you know this user.” click “I know …”. But as it was said previously, you will have to clean up your friend request list.

    But, as I saw, there is another problem:
    “Sorry, this user already has too many friend requests.”- and this is not a temporary problem.I can’t add a person, even we have mutual friends and same interests. The good part at some of this private profiles is that, if you have commomn friends/mutual friends, you can see some parts of the profile( the wall, pictures gallery, info).

    My question is: do anybody know how to add the person(not a friend) when you receive thie message?
    ‘Sorry, this user already has too many friend requests.”
    Thx!

    • Himadri Dimri

      Well in such case ask that person to send you friend request. If he is your friend then I am sure he will do it. ;) Else just wait for some days and try again! Facebook is trying to be secure in such a way!

      • Jeremy

        You can’t send someone who is not on your friends list a message… Yes if the person is close enough to you that you can call them on the phone or whatever that could work but that’s stupid… many people add casual acquaintances and friends of friends on fb…

    Heres What I’ve been Doing & Heres what You all can Start doing as well.

    After been Blocked for 4 Days I toke matters in my own hand & limited my Friend Request down to 10 or 17 , I notice If you go over 20 Facebook will Block you from sending Requests .

    Heres What you do :

    Othough Many of us May Hate to loose Our Friends after we’ve spent days trying to Add them.

    1. Add only 10 or 17 Friends Do not go over 20 Request

    2. put A time limit to 2-3 Weeks If That Person has been on their Page & changed pictures Yet Your Request is still Pending , Its A Sign that maybe they don’t want you on their Page Delete Your Request to them . ( AFTER ALL IF THEY HAVE TIME TO CHANGE THEIR PROFILE PICTURES THEN THERE SHOULDN’T BE ANY REASON WHY? YOUR REQUEST SHOULD STILL BE PENDING ) unless they are just been Asses Or lazy Other wise They should Add you .

    3. You can Delete those pending Friends Thats been in your Inbox list For over A Week & wait a few Weeks & Request them after 2 Weeks .

    4. Do not try to add 50 + Friends Or else You’ll Get Blocked .

    5. Try to Request 1 or 2 at A time & wait 2 weeks to add 1 or 2 Friends .

    But heres something that I”m noticing too I’ve Requested 2 People who’s had only about 200 Friends Yet Facebook Wouldn’t Allow My Request to Go through This also Could be the Way that User Has their Facebook Profile settings as well .

    I have sent friend requests that still show pending, yet their posts show up in my Newsfeed. They are not showing up in my Friends list either. Is this a privacy setting on their end or should I cancel and re-send the friend request?

  • diana totino

    I’ve been trying to add my nephew to my FB account since last year, but every time I click on his “Add Friend” or “Send Message” FB tells me I need to open an account?!?! I already have one!!! I reopened a 2nd account and used a different email address, it permitted me to send him a friend request, but who knows if he got it? – Why is this happening??? Its rare that I send anyone a friend request.

  • Devang

    now when my ban gets completed, will I be able to send friend requests?
    I have deleted all pending requests

      Don’t try to add all your friends in a single day, add them periodically or tell them to add you.

    That “This Request Can Not Be Sent” crap is the only thing ‘both’ my accounts have been stuck with for just about 2 weeks now! I can’t add anybody, can’t do anything and it doesn’t even tell me when I’ll be able to in the near future. I really hope they fix this!

  • Monika

    Whenever I open my account it says ‘For security reasons your account is temporarily locked
    Unfortunately, your computer appears to be infected with a virus.
    Don’t worry. We’ll help you find and remove any infected files right away.” And then it says “How you might have been infected
    Often, users who are infected with malware are tricked into running a malicious program, which infects their machine with malware. Remember, you should never run programs from sources that you don’t trust.” ANd then “McAfee Scan And Repair
    We’re pleased to offer McAfee Scan and Repair to you at no charge. If any infected files are found, McAfee Scan and Repair can remove them for you automatically. If you prefer, you can also remove them yourself.

    By clicking this button, you are agreeing to the McAfee Scan and Repair terms of service.” And when i download that thing it doesn’t work and i scanned my pc with other antivirus software and it doesn’t have any virus in it. But then also my account is not unlocked yet. Please help… please…… :'( :'( :'(

  • shahzaib

    my friend reqquest have not send plz do somthing

  • dweeb

    whats the point in it being called a social networking site when we cant do any social networking? Ive had enough of facebook, even started a new profile myself, only got up to adding 6 friends before i got the two day block and my 6 friend requests were cancelled too. so stupid for them to turn around and tell me that i dont know the people ive added. Its like going to a party and mark zuckenborg is at the door telling people that they can only talk to people they know and you cant make any new friends (which i think is the reason why he started facebook in the first place because he had no friends, locked away in his bedroom). so useless and pathetic!! the only reason they’ve invented this feature is so more profiles get made so they can go to the news conferences and announce “oh we had 300,000 new users this month”…..absolutley pathetic!! Goodbye facebook

    Hi, I am getting an error message on Facebook. I am not able to add anyone to my contacts. When I try to add a person there is a pop up that says “This request can’t be sent”. I would really appreciate if someone can help me out with this situation.
