A question about Facebook? [More:]So, I know the in-thing now-a-days is this, but for the life of me how do you find the pages of those people who you've decided to be friends with. I'm sorry if the question's not clear, but if one of you can spare me the time and answer me I'd be grateful.

I have this friend who made me a friend two weeks ago, and I did the same two or three days ago, but whenever I open the mail that was sent to me confirming my self as her friend and click on her name there--I'm just sent back to my own profile and I don't know what I'm doing wrong...

It's sort of a test. If you fail, you're not allowed to have friends. Then once you figure it out they make you swear an oath never to reveal the secret.

I usually just search for their first name in the search box in the top right.

If you can tell me how "Helpppppp!!!" is pronounced, I will reveal to you all the secrets of Facebook.

If you go to the Friends menu tab at the very top, there should be a menu item called "Recently Added". If you click there, you should see her.

I use the search box a lot, too.

Search box. The names of people you're already friends with will start coming up below the box when you start typing their names.

Also, if the person has removed their Facebook page, you will be directed back to your own page. They may no longer have an account.

Speaking of F******K, I was just playing wordtwist on it and was given the letters SHDJIA to form into words. I got JIHAD, and HAJ, but it wouldn't accept HAJI, which, in my (western) head was how I spelled "hajiboy." Thus I missed HADJI and HADJIS. I need to pay closer attention to these kind of details in the future.

HAJI should probably be an alternate in the dictionary but another common spelling is HAJJI.

hadjiboy, I'm not sure what happened there but they may have de-friended you, changed their privacy settings, or even put you on their block list. Try using the "Find Friends" feature to see if their public profile is visible to you.
