Facebook: Friend Request “Ignore Button” Changing

For those of you out there who have a Facebook account, reports in have indicated that the way in which we choose to accept a friend request will be changing in the next few days. Up until now, if a friend contacts you to be added to your friends list, you have the option of choosing to confirm or ignore it with a push of a button.

According to Jennifer Van Grove at Mashable, the “Ignore” button will now be replaced with a “Not now” option. If you decide that you would rather bypass your friends request, by clicking on the “Not Now” button will put the request into a “Hidden Requests” box. The person who has contacted you will be none the wiser with your decision to put their request on hold. On the flipside to this, if you decide to confirm the person, then this will be staying the same.

Facebook have also said that there is no time limit on how long you leave the person waiting for a response. If at any point you choose to completely delete their request, then you will be given the opportunity to say whether you know that person, and if you do not, then it will stop that person contacting you again.

Added to this latest change, in recent weeks Facebook have changed their “Like” button. What do you think about the new “Not Now” option? Did you prefer the “Ignore Button”? Give us your thoughts. To check out more on this log onto Mashable
