If you Uninstall your facebook app and then install it again, the “Friend Request” icon will be displayed again. It works for me!
How do I get my friend request icon back on Facebook?
Navigate to the menu > settings & privacy > settings > privacy settings > who can send you friend requests > everyone/friends of friends. Hence, if someone changed their privacy setting to “friends of friends”, the “Add Friend” button will not show unless you’re friends with one of the person’s friends on Facebook.
Where is the friends request icon?
At the top of any Facebook page, click the Friend Requests icon just to the right of the word “facebook”. The icon looks like the heads and shoulders of two little people (hover your cursor over the icons to see what each one is called). Above it, you’ll see a red icon indicating how many friend requests you have.
You may not be able to add someone as a friend if: They haven’t accepted your friend request yet. You may have already sent them a friend request. Check if the friend requests you’ve sent are still pending.
Why did my friend request icon disappear Facebook?
If you got a notification saying you received a friend request, but you don’t see it on your Facebook account: The person who sent the friend request may have deleted the request. You may have already denied the friend request.
If you’ve tried to add them and they’ve denied the request, Facebook can remove the option for you to be able to add them again by greying out the add friend button. They may have their settings that only people with mutual friends can add them, and if you have none then the button will appear greyed out.”
You already sent a friend request, and it’s either still pending or the recipient deleted it. Now the Add Friend button doesn’t show up, so you can’t send a new friend request. If your request was deleted, Facebook has blocked you from sending that person another friend request for one whole year.
What happens when someone sends you a friend request on Facebook?
When you receive a Facebook friend request from someone and you either ignore it or delete it, the person sending it automatically becomes a ‘follower’, meaning, they see when you post something new, a photograph, comments and updated bio provided those updates are posted publicly.
Does Facebook automatically make friend requests?
Yes, Facebook automatically send friend request to those who are new on FaceBook world even if you didn’t sent a friend request. but, you can actually remove or deactivate that ‘Automatic Send Friend Request’ by going to your facebook settings and change your Privacy into ‘Only me’.
Why does it just say message instead of add friend?
It means they may have modified their privacy settings and they may have it set so that you have to have mutual friends with them to add them. Or if you sent them a friend request already they have denied it and marked it as spam or that they don’t know you.
