You should now be able to see a list of the friend requests you sent but have gone unanswered. If they wanted to accept your request, they probably would have done so already.

2. See Private Messages You Never Received

Did you know that Facebook has a mail folder in your account? That folder is used for Spam and ever time we get a message from someone that is not on our contact list (depending on various factors) it could be a message we never received. To gain access to these click on the messages icon on the upper right-hand corner (same row as the friend requests) and click on see all. Once you are there click on Message Request and you should now see the messages you thought were gone, or you never received.

I can never get enough of tech in general, whether it's Android or web apps, but helping others solve their tech problems also brings great satisfaction. I carry a device wherever I go and I'm always connected. Life without Internet just sounds too scary to me. :-).
