How to see friend requests rejected on Facebook: In recent days you have read my guide on how to sign up to Facebook and so you too, like many other users in the world, have proceeded to create your account on the famous social network. The first thing you did, after completing your profile, was to send a friend request to people you know. However, if you are here now and you are reading this article of mine, it seems clear to me that, with the passing of the days, you have realized that not all the people you tried to get in touch with have accepted and you would like to understand. if your request is still pending or if it has been denied.

Of course yes, that was exactly what I intended to do today with this guide of mine. If you dedicate a few minutes of your precious time to me, I can in fact explain to you, in a simple but at the same time detailed way, how to see rejected friend requests on Facebook. The procedure, I anticipate it right away, is very simple to carry out even by those who, a bit like you, do not yet consider themselves a great expert in terms of social networking and the Internet in general.

See refused friend requests

Whether you are in the habit of using Facebook from a computer or from a smartphone and / or tablet, it makes no difference … seeing the friend requests that have been rejected on the famous social network is always feasible. To understand how, read the instructions on what to do below.

From computer

Do you use the famous social network mostly from your computer (therefore from the website of the same) and would you like to understand how to see the friend requests rejected on Facebook? Then first connect to facebook.com and to log in to your account by filling in the appropriate fields at the top right and then pressing the button Log in.

Now, go to the diary of the person to whom you had forwarded your friend request by typing their name in the search bar at the top and then selecting the relevant suggestion from those you see appear and then check the wording on the button with thelittle man attached to the cover image that you previously used to send the friendship which, in fact, varies depending on whether the request is being forwarded and / or not yet accepted or rejected

If the item is present on the button in question Request sent then the person in question has not yet accepted your friend request. If, on the other hand, the button shows the writing add to friends your friend request has almost certainly been rejected.

In addition to, as I have just indicated, you can make sure that a given friend request has been rejected or not by going by exclusion. Let me explain: clicking on the button two men which is at the top of the Facebook home, on the blue bar, by pressing on the wording Show all which is at the bottom of the menu that has opened and by clicking, on the page that is shown to you, on the link View requests sent you can view the complete list of friend requests that you have sent and that have not yet been accepted.

Therefore, if in the list of users in question you do not find the name of the people you are interested in and if they, of course, have not already accepted your friendship on the social network, the request has obviously been refused.

From Android

If you are using an Android smartphone or tablet, you can see the friend requests sniffed out on Facebook by first planning to download (if you have not already done so) theofficial app of the social network on your device, to start it and to access your account by filling in the login screen with the required data. Then type, in the search field at the top, the name of the contact person and select the relevant suggestion from those that appear.

Now that you see the profile of the person you are looking for, if the button with thelittle man that is under the profile image of the user in question appears to be blue and if you find the wording below Cancel request, your friendship inquiry has not yet been accepted. If, on the other hand, the button is white and below there is the writing add to friends your request has almost certainly been denied.

As for the possibility of viewing the friend requests sent by proceeding by exclusion, as seen in the previous step on Facebook from a computer, unfortunately this is not currently feasible using the social network app for Android. If you want, however, you can remedy by accessing the service via web browser (through the app you usually use to surf the web from mobile), requesting the display in desktop mode and then implementing the above steps, absolutely nothing changes except the fact that “clicks” must be replaced by “taps”.

If you do not know how to request the display of a given website in desktop mode, I inform you that all you have to do is press the button Menu (usually the one with the three dots) and select the appropriate item from there. For example, on Chrome you have to plug on the button with i three dots vertically at the top right and then you have to choose Desktop site from the menu that opens.

Then select the relevant suggestion from those you see appearing.

Once the diary of the person you are looking for is displayed, if the button with thelittle man that you find under the profile image of the user in question appears to be blue and if the entry is present under the latter Cancel, your friendship inquiry has not yet been accepted, while if the button is white and under it there is the writing add to friends it seems clear to me that your request has been refused.

Also in the case of iOS, as well as as I have just indicated, you can identify the friend requests rejected by proceeding by exclusion. To do this, step on the button with the three lines horizontally that you find at the bottom right of the app screen, presses on the item Friends and select the button Send which is at the top right of the next screen.
