It hurts when someone deletes your friend request on Facebook. But unfortunately, this social media king doesn’t let you know the name of that person who is not ready to accept your request for virtual friendship on Facebook. Well, there is a way to see rejected friend requests on Facebook. Take a quick tour of this guide and you will be able to know if your Facebook friend request is ignored or rejected.

When someone denies your Facebook friend request, you can send another; but in case there is no action taken on your friend request, you can’t send another request to the same person. This tutorial tells you how you can see ignored friend requests on your Facebook account.
