Your Facebook has HIDDEN ‘reject folder’ filled with people who ignored you

FACEBOOK has a hidden "rejection folder" filled with people who have ignored you.

This tucked-away page is tricky to find, but it's definitely eye-opening once you've got it.

We've all sent Facebook friend requests from time to time.

But you probably forget about them a few days after you've sent – especially if they're ignored.

Facebook has a page that reveals all of the friend requests you've sent that haven't been answered.

Maybe the person just doesn't use Facebook much.

But it's also possible that they've brutally rejected you – for reasons only they may know.

Thankfully you can view and cancel your long-shunned friend requests to reclaim some dignity.

Or you can let it linger, as a nagging reminder to your new "frenemy" that you're still open to friendship.

How to find Facebook sent friend requests

There are two main ways to find your friends on Facebook.

The first is on mobile – so that's your smartphone app.

Open up Facebook and then tap on the Menu, which looks like three lines stacked on top of each other.

You'll see a list of options – choose Friends.

From there you'll be able to see your pending friend requests – which are ones you haven't answered yet – as well as Suggested Friends.

Now tap See All in the top-right, which will show all of your pending friend requests.

Then in the top-right, just to the left of the Search icon, are three dots.

Tap those and you'll get a pop-up that says View Sent Requests.

This will show all of the friend requests that you've sent but that haven't been answered.

The second way to do it is on desktop – that's your laptop, desktop PC or Mac.

Then navigate to facebook.com/friends/requests.

That will show your pending friend requests.

But if you click View Sent Requests in the top left, you'll be taken to all the requests you've sent – but that have been ignored.
