No matter big or small, Facebook is a powerful tool for any business in this era.
Prospective clients/ existing clients/ employees can be added to the “Friend List” on Facebook.
Thereafter, people in your “Friend List” can follow your status updates, pictures, videos, and major life events.
Facebook allows anyone with a Facebook Account to send a “Friend Request.”
If you feel you are receiving a chunk of unwanted “Friend Requests” on Facebook, you can customize your Facebook account’s privacy settings.
Note that you can’t completely block the inflow of “Friend Requests.” However, you can tweak the settings to stop a major section of the Facebook user base from sending them.
