Facebook is currently the third most visited website in the world, and it is considered to be the most popular social networking platform, widely used as both the website and the mobile app.

Facebook is one of the few great sites to meet new people, to find and connect with people you already know and to stay in touch and communicate with family and friends. One of the reasons it became so popular is that it makes connecting with others quite simple. To connect with someone on Facebook, or to become friends with someone in other words, the only thing you need to do is to add him/her by sending a friend request. When that person sees your friendship request and, assuming that person knows you or wants to connect with you too, accepts it, you two become "friends" on Facebook.

TIP: Another great site to find people is Google as we demonstrated in our tutorial about how to find someone on Google.

Keeping track of your friends, your sent and received friend requests might be pretty straightforward if you are not using Facebook frequently and if you don't have many people in your friends list. However, if you are highly busy on Facebook, sending and receiving dozens of friend requests and communicating actively with lots of people on a daily basis, it might get a bit difficult to remember who you sent a friend request to. Let's say you searched for some people on Facebook by city or by email and sent them friend requests for personal or business related reasons. After a while, how will you know to whom you had sent friend requests to? Or let's say you have a rather long list of school friends that you want to add all on Facebook. How will you check which ones still haven't accepted your requests? This is where the "View Sent Friend Requests" page comes into your help.

Facebook has lots of features, options and shortcuts to help you customize and improve your overall experience and find what you are looking for on your account or on other profiles quickly, however sometimes it may get a little difficult to locate a page or the information you seek, especially if you are not much familiar with the Facebook interface. For that reason, we created this detailed guide to help you locate the sent friend requests on your Facebook account.

How to Check Sent Friend Requests on Your Facebook Account

Viewing your sent requests on Facebook takes just a couple of steps and we will go through them below.

STEP 1: Log in to your Facebook account: facebook.com

STEP 2: On the top navigation bar, to the right of your name and Home link, you will see the Find Friends link, click on it.

The Find Friends page will list your received friend requests at the top and a list of people you may know below that, in case you would like to connect with them. If you haven't received any friend requests, it will simply say "No New Friend Requests".

STEP 3: Below the Received Requests section title, you will see View Sent Requests link, click on it.

This will open the Friend Requests Sent page where you can see all the friend requests that you sent to other Facebook users so far.

This page displays only the people that haven't accepted your friend request yet. When people accept your request, which means they are your friend now, they will no longer appear on the Friend Requests Sent page, you will see them on your Friends list.

As it is also clear from the above image, seeing a Friend Request Sent button instead of an Add Friend button next to a profile ensures that you have sent a request to them, and they haven't accepted it yet.

This is how you view sent friend requests in Facebook, hopefully it will help you with tracking your sent requests.
