Hidden Facebook feature to see who's rejected your friend requests

Hey are you enjoying your Wednesday? Working your hump day? Feeling pretty fine and fresh?

Well, I'm here to change all that, and make you feel insecure and rejected. 

Buzzfeed discovered this week a hidden feature on Facebook which allows you to see who has left your friend requests hanging. 

To access it, you simply click on the friend icon at the top of your Facebook page (the spot where you accept all those new requests), then select 'Find Friends'.

A page will load with all the people currently waiting to become your friend. At the top, there's a tiny "View Sent Requests" button - click that, and you'll see what requests you've sent that haven't been approved.

If someone deletes your friend request rather than just ignoring it, they won't appear in the list

An added bit of sneaky knowledge: if you leave someone "pending", they get subscribed to your updates. That means anything you post with the privacy level "Public", they see in their feed. This also means they probably THINK you accepted them.

Do this at your own risk - it might be an unexpected blow to your ego to see who hasn't accepted your request.
