|I'm in agreement with you, and admitting the trust issues would raise flags with me too. At the end of the day it's YOUR facebook page, it's upto you who you have on it. I'm with others, in thar i only have folks on it i've met and know|

|I will add someone to facebook if I've had a few conversations with them and they don't seem creepy. It gives me a chance to find out a bit about them too. Nothing bad has came of adding a guy off here on facebook. There was one guy who gave me a bit of a creepy vibe so I didn't add him and actually ended up cutting off communication, but any other guy who's asked, I've added and not had a problem. It's a good way to see if the person is fake or misrepresenting themself in some way. I'll add people I met one night at parties to facebook, if they seem sane, so why not people off POF? I don't have my address or phone number on there, although I'm not opposed to giving my cell number to people on here either (haven't had any problems yet, besides one guy who wouldn't stop texting me, but I told him it was 'over' even though we hadn't met and he buzzed off lol).|

|This depends entirely on how much info you reveal on FB.|
I reveal very little on FB, and I don't really like FB.
I can see both sides. The guy wants to know you better and he's right that FB can reveal a lot.
But if the lady is not ready to reveal more, then say no to FB.

|I love facebook in that I find out more about who iam talking about..lot more PICS and find out what kind of friends he has....I do not tell to much private info on my page, I usually put little sayings on there and remarks...I never give out anything else..Also I can remove anyone that I have befriended and block them..|

|Facebook is for real friends, family and co-workers...I don't friend people just to see how many people I can friend on there...|

|I wouldn't immediately friend you on facebook after a few messages, or a first date, you're still a stranger at that point, not a friend. I reserve FB mainly for friends from school, & relatives. Why would I give access to my private info to a stranger?|

|I normally don't add people in the dating arena to my fb but this 1 guy added me & I accepted because I thought he was special plus we were planngin on getting to know each other over the next few months before I moved to where he lives for grad school. |
Anyway, I saw all kinds of stuff on his fb that was of concern & when I mentioned it - he stopped talking to me. Yet, he has not defriended me. What is up with people?

|Uh huh, those people who need all your personal info and life details, they really seem to always end up being the creeps you wouldn't want to be with or know anything about you, they give me the heeby jeebys|

|I'm lucky if I go on Facebook 3 or 4 times a year. Anyone who is truly a friend on that site already has the necessary contact info beyond there.|
I'm not one of those people in a contest trying to see how many people I can have on my friends list. I hold friendship in a high value, so it takes more than just a request to get me to 'add' them. I would not add a total stranger.

|I talked to a gentleman on here who directed me to his Facebook so I could get a better idea of who he was.|
His Facebook page was almost empty, his dog's had all the interesting stuff. Yes, he had a Facebook page for his dog and spoke and responded to people as the dog.
"Woof, woof, good morning everyone".
I told him I was not interested in seeing someone whose alter ego was a dog. He said he only talked as his dog would if she could. That everyone loved her and enjoyed chatting with her.
You can learn a lot by viewing someone's Facebook.

|Five-marie, looks like he saved you some time figuring out he operates! |
In general, for many couples, facebook can be a HUGE problem. One has to realize it is better to not air your dirty laundry for all your friends to see. I currently see this with my brother and his fiance. They both joined facebook, my brother being new to this whole online thing. I warned him..... drama will happen. And it is. On a weekly basis.
Granted my ex and I met on facebook, we had a mutual friend. We remained 'friends' as we dated. The only issue that came up was one particular women who got over flirting and I did ask him about it and he claimed she was drunk and they were just great friends. She lived out of state anyways. I also was curious as to wy he would leave his relationship status at single. Turns out there WAS a reason, its called cheating.
So I feel mixed emotions about facebook. Depends on the people involved.

|It's a red flag to be asked. You never share info with a stranger you met through online dating till after you know them personally.|

|I've had people send friend requests after a first meeting and I've excepted all of them. A couple ended up deleting me because things didn't work out, but the other 4 or 5 I'm still friends with and we've never really had any romantic interest in each other. I'm starting to think once I become friends with someone on FB, it means we will never see each other naked. It has definitely cemented the "friend zone". The ones that deleted me I actually had an interest in so that was probably a good thing. But back to op, I definitely don't do that anymore. I'd rather get to know someone the old fashion way.|

|I personally will not add anybody that I meet on here until after we meet in person. I used to add before we met, but not anymore.|

|His point of view is weak, but interesting. If you don't want to friend someone I don't blame you. If he has a problem with that then move along.|

|I have friended a few guys from on here. It was after a bit of email exchanges. One I have not gone out with, but, I dont think his head's really in the game to date, judging from also being a single parent and working alot. He doesnt post much.|
It is entirely up to you, on whether or not you want to add them. I personally think its just a means of being nosey and trying to get a better insight to ones life. I dont go and add random people to my pages that I first meet. If they have an issue with that. on to the next. No love lost there. Not like I invested much in the convo to begin with, and there will be another that will come around soon.
Alot of people use facebook for different reasons. Some to stay in touch with out of state family...reconnect with past high school/grade school friends, and dating, whether it be thru other social networking sites, or mutual friend of friends networking, or if you go out and meet someone in real life and then add.
Who you add, and how much you choose to share is up to you. If someone gets their feelings hurt because of not adding, thats their issue. Not yours.

|Facebook fits each person's needs differently. For me, the only people on my facebook page are family members and life-long friends. I'd only consider adding a woman to my Facebook page if we've reached a point in our relationship where she knows my family.|
My primary use for Facebook is to keep an eye on what my son is up to. I want to ensure that he does not make poor choices in the type of information he posts there. After all, we as parents to have the responsibility to keep our children as safe as possible - across all fronts. =)

|It's only Facebook! I agree with him, its a really good indicator to find out who you're talking to, it has a lot more information/photos than this but nothing that could put you in danger. I've always accepted loads of people since i was like 14 on myspace, its no big deal!|
Posted: 3/11/2012 8:39:39 PM
|then again, my dad is exactly the same, won't add anyone he doesn't know or hasn't met and won't even send any adds out so i suppose it depends on the person, though i think its no big deal at all!|

|"It's a red flag to be asked. You never share info with a stranger you met through online dating"|
How about we say never share info with a stranger period

|I use to add girls on here when they would ask for my last night but I don't anymore. One time I accepted a girl from here and I updated my status to something like "day with the family, hiking and then dinner." and she comments " how come I wasn't invited" and later "I see how it is" I hadn't even met her yet!!! Eventually I will if we've met and gone on a few dates and there's something there. After that point, they may start thinking you have something to hide!|
