Thought I'd throw this out to the floor.

An old friend of mine popped up in my 'People you may know' section on Facebook. So, naturally, I sent a 'Friend request' to them.

Only, ten minutes later when I googled their name.....I couldn't find their account.

So either I'm going crazy, or their account is basically invisible. And if it's invisible, why did it pop up in my 'People you may know' section?

Any ideas guys? Obviously bringing this to the Lounge is unwise, but I'm hoping amid the abuse someone might be able to answer the question. ;)

You could have that person blocked from viewing them. Go to your Settings, and check your Filters. If your Filters are Active, check to see if Block Unknown is checked. You will have to uncheck this to see this person. I don't have a Facebook account so I really have no ***'ng idea.

They blocked you, or you blocked them.

sounds like when you sent a friend request...that your old friend then opted to block you instead
