Unlike HubPages, where it’s encouraged to follow other members, Facebook views this negatively. There are times I see an interesting post from a like-minded individual on a friend’s wall and I want to send them a friend request. However, I won’t do it because they have the option of telling Facebook they don’t know me. This can actually result in having your account suspended. I enjoy following other Hubbers and am glad I don’t have to worry that I’ll be seen as a stalker. When I see a comment I like or agree with I usually follow the Hubber right away.

Angela, it would be just for the person sending the friend request. I don't get very many requests. I did awhile back, so it goes in spurts. As Christin S said, it's sometimes spammers doing this.
Many people don't know that when they receive a friend request, opt not to accept it and click "I don't know this person" as the reason, it could cause someone to have their account suspended. This has happened to well-intentioned non-spammers.
