WARNING! YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO UNSEE THIS!
When you get down to it, Facebook is just the human experience mapped out on a linear feed. It takes all the non-tangible aspects of life and arranges them in the form of icons and windows for you to peruse at your leisure. You don't need to leave your couch to hear people's thoughts, experience an event across the country or laugh at a pug riding a unicycle.
That being said, just like actual life, Facebook life has its downsides. For instance, everyone pretty much learned at the exact same time all uncles really like Donald Trump.
But, that's on them. It's their decision to pick whom to like, and that doesn't affect us directly.
What does affect us directly is having our friend requests ignored, and while we used to never really know if a request got ignored, someone figured out a totally legit way to get this information, and it absolutely, 100 percent, beyond sucks.
All you need to do is go to your friend tab on the top right of your Facebook page, click “See All” at the bottom and then the “View Sent Requests” tab.
That's it. That's your window into seeing who flat out doesn't think you're important enough to be friends with on Facebook.
I want to emphasize again YOU DO NOT NEED THIS INFORMATION IN YOUR LIFE!
I just found out my cousin's husband ignored my friend request, and all I've been thinking about since is the exciting and loud ways I'm planning on bringing it up on Thanksgiving.
Here are some of the people who ignored my fellow Elite Daily staff:
Darren Criss and John Green. -- Anna Straight up, Asher Roth. -- Taylor My teacher from high school told us when we graduated, she would be friends with us on Facebook. She STILL has yet to approve my friend request. -- Tina Just randos from my high school. -- Katie
Please, don't do this. What's that? You already did? Oh. Well, good luck not feeling miserable for the rest of the week.
