    Useless thing the facebook. I quit it after i received so called friend requests from people I've no relation. Then i realised these people were contacts in phone book and whatsapp has access to contacts as well as facebook. Then facebook bots send you fake requests. This is not only invasion of privacy but serves no benefit to end user. Not to mention useless ads, "likes" you have to do on friends' posts etc
