How To Deactivate Friend Suggestions From Facebook?

2010-01-30 at 03:46 am hugege

I constantly receive into my facebook account useless friend suggestions and, thus would, like to remove this feature (I don’t talk about friend requests but only about friend suggestions). What can I do with the facebook settings in order to achieve this?

    You can block someone from appearing in Suggestions by clicking the “X” button at the top right of their entry. This will close the person’s entry and prevent them from appearing in this section again.
    Please note that the Suggestions section will not appear if you block all of the people Facebook suggests. You can, however, find this section by clicking the Friends drop-down menu and selecting “Find Friends.” Once you have more matches, this section will reappear on your homepage. Bye and regards!

    I am sure that there isn’t a way for you to do this yet. I have been looking through the settings on facebook and am not seeing anything like that.

    There is usually a link below the invite that allows you to block all inquires like this.

    I would like to delete all of the past suggestions; and now that the x is no longer available what can I do to clean up the file?

  5. facebook has become a terrorist network! thru intimidation, sellin your info and forced friend suggestions they are the ANTICHIST. They need 2 give the users of their site complete control of who is able to view their page and obtain their info via third party sells. I smell a class action lawsuit.

    you can delete friends suggestion by clicking on “x” until the time all friends have been removed from the suggestion box. When you have removed all the people by clicking on ‘x’, there would be a pop-up which would say you have removed this ad and the reason why you did so.. Hope this helps.. It did work for me, so I am sure it would work for you. Cheers

    YOU’RE TOTALLY RIGHT! MARK ZUCKERBERG IS A TERRORIST! THE FRIEND SUGGESTIONS ARE TERRORISM!

    We need to kill all of them. Just to be sure.

    First, you need to learn to spell, then…you need to read your own writing “their site”, ..not yours!! Why would they give some yahoo complete control over their product. Create your own multimillion/billion dollar social network then you can decide to let your users have complete control. Otherwise.. you’re just making noise! I’m just saying!
