Facebook Error Upon Sending Friend’s Request

 I chatted with my high school classmate using my Facebook account. He told me to add all my high school batch mates to a group that he created. The group consists of about 200 persons. I was almost done sending names of 50 persons when suddenly an error message appeared: “This request can’t be sent.” Even if had sent a friend request to another person out of the group, the error still appeared. Can you help me fix it? Thanks.

FaceBook Error Upon Requesting Friend Request


Dear Nardwoxu,

This is quite a common problem for most of us using Facebook. The main reason is that it happens only when you start sending requests to many people who might have ignored you and have reported you as spam. As per Facebook privacy policy, they expect from their users to send requests only to those persons who are also willing to accept their request and should not ping them without their willingness.

This blockage will even restrict you to send request to those persons you even know. You should report to Facebook authorities that this has been done unintentionally and you will be careful in the future. They will keep you under observation for a certain period of time. They will allow you to send a request again to other users.

Hope, it will help you in your concern.

Here are few reasons why your request is not pushing through:

1. When you have sent more than one friend request to a Facebook user, you will not be able to send another one.
2. This could be a problem with Privacy settings set on Facebook that restricted your capacity of adding users.To change this setting, please refer to the image below:
3. If you don't have mutual friends with the user that you are adding, your requests for friends have gone unanswered for a long time, or some members reported your contact as unwelcome, then you will be prevented from adding friends. You will soon be given the chance to add friends but once they did, only add friends that you personally know, or else they will apply further limits on your account.
