In just a few days, if you really have the intention, you can make friends with hundreds of people who have never even met you, and you can do all of this just by sitting in front of a cellphone or computer screen.

Is it necessary to remove the Add Friend button?


Many positive stories have happened because of Facebook, such as the story that tells how someone can find a family member who has disappeared for a long time. There are not a few news about people who have found their life partner through Facebook. For example, like Schuler Benson and Celeste Zendler, who started their love story because their Facebook accounts somehow suddenly switched, as reported by the Business Insider website.


On the other hand, criminal acts originating from Facebook are no less numerous. Sexual abuse by youths against underage girls, mass rapes, murders, fraud with the lure of credit business investment which was bustling on Facebook because the perpetrator was a beautiful young woman, and kidnapping. Juvenile delinquency cases also add to the series of problems that occur via Facebook, such as the case of a high school student in Bantul with the initials FR who ran away from home in January 2014.


One way to minimize the possibility of the above cases is to remove the Add Friend button on Facebook. Why is that? Because almost all of these cases were carried out by known perpetrators online. By eliminating the button, automatically your friends on Facebook are people who already know you before so it is unlikely that cases like the one above will happen to you.


Closing


You need to be careful in choosing friends because there are some friends who will actually get you into various problems, especially if you get friends from cyberspace whose real identities you don't know for sure.


In BukitTinggi, West Sumatra, there was once a case of serial killings where the perpetrators pretended to be women in their fake accounts. That's why you should really think twice before accepting a friend request.


Removing the Add Friend button on Facebook is an effective step to reduce the number of friend requests on the social network, which will automatically reduce the risk of bad things happening as a result of accepting friendships from people you don't know.
