You may have forgotten their names, but Facebook hasn’t, thanks to a little-known feature that keeps track of all the friend requests you’ve sent over the years.
This gives you the ability to see who snubbed you, ask them why they blanked you, or even delete the request entirely so that they never darken your digital doorstep again.

You can easily take a look at this list on the Facebook mobile app on via desktop.
How to view sent friend requests on Facebook
If you’re on your smartphone, all you have to do is open the Facebook app then tap the Menu icon (made up of three lines).
Then, tap the icon below that says ‘Friends’.
It will show your Friend Requests from other people as well as ‘People You May Know’.
Hit ‘See All’ in the top-right of the screen and then the three dots in the corner, which will let you ‘View sent requests’.
To do the same thing on desktop, just click this link on your PC and click View Sent Requests in the top left of the screen.
This isn’t the only nifty feature that Facebook hides from its users.
Every Facebook account has a separate inbox that filters messages, a bit like a spam folder.
To see it, all you have to do is launch the Messenger app on your smartphone, then open ‘Settings’ and head to Message Requests.
From here, you’ll be able to see the messages that Facebook thought you didn’t want to see, which could include messages from friends in the ‘You May Know’ folder.
There’s also a spam option. Beware though: some of the filtered messages could be scams or phishing texts, so just make sure you know who you’re talking to before you share any personal info or click any links.
