How is it acceptable to contact someone I don’t yet know on Facebook?
Well this all rather depends the reasons that you want to get in touch with someone. If its just because they are ‘hot’ and you fancy some harmless flirting interchange, Facebook is not the ideal place for this. People (like you) value their privacy and no my dear this is not MySpace.
However, if you share some genuiene commonality, and are for example members of the same ‘save the world from destruction‘ group, then a friendly wall post, or message could be just the right kind of opener.
Aside from social networking with known others, Facbook is also great at putting like minded people in the same space at the same time! An opporutnity not to be missed!
So within group postings someone usually shares a comment about the groups latest issue, or wall post, discussion topic, or picture to ease the tension. In this situation if another group member contacts you first, Facebook solidarity obliges you to respond in kind.
That’s if they are not a complete freak…Tweet
