Facebook Sending Friend Requests Automatically: With Facebook’s recent struggles with privacy breach, customers trust in the platform is going down and recent complains from users has been about Facebook sending out automatic friends request directly from user’s account.
Although I have not personally experienced this, but example is a frustrated user who complained that In the past 3 months, FB has been randomly sending friend requests to his son’s friends (Assumed friends of his friend on Facebook) without his permission.
