Friending on Facebook helps you stay connected with people you care about. Adding a friend means you may see each other’s activity in News Feed, Stories and Photos.

When you want to add a friend on Facebook, keep in mind:

If you'd like to see updates from people you find interesting but don't know personally, like a journalist or celebrity, try following them instead. If you're getting unwanted or inappropriate friend requests, you can report the account.
