If you are connected with the person in question on other social networking sites if you are friends with them there.

It may be that you have sent a request to the wrong person or your friend may not be using his or her real name.

The suspension of your ability to send requests will be lifted after a few days.

We recommend using your real name when registering and to check the identity of the person before sending a request when possible.

Don’t forget to send your friend a message beforehand.
