Not to stomp on your parade but by posting this here, anyone in public can friend you. I hope you know what you're doing but asking for random people to friend you is cause for trouble especially since you're still a minor (someone under 18 years old) and posting your full name on a public forum is highly discouraged.

Facebook should only consist of people you personally know and not random strangers who you don't know.

I agree wit what the previous user.It is dangerous to do what u r doing.The first thing u should do is to get to know people on wrongplanet and after a while maybe talk about adding each other on Facebook but make sure their photo is actually them not fake.
Catfish tv show has made me even more cautious then I was before.

Be careful on social media sites.The less u say to people u don't know the better.Take a while to get to know them. :)

Hope that helps :)

I've PM'd the OP an advisory, indicating the potential risks.

Agree with the above. I suggest posting in the 'Getting to know each other' forum or in the 'Friendship boards' under 'Social skills and making friends' forum, and without the personal details. Then you can PM people and get to know them that way.

Dude, there are weirdos on any forum. Don't post your name like that.

This. You also got to think of people not registered here that view the forums. You're underage, that puts you in a very vulnerable position. There are people out there who will take advantage of your desire to make friends and be liked.

Try these forums and make friends gradually with the people there:

Be very careful, the internet is not a safe place for minors. Please inform your parents or let them know.

I'll agree with the others, it's best you don't do that ever again. Try doing what the others mentioned instead.

This was about the worst forum to post this.
