It is weird... usually, if it's someone I used to know quite well then I'll leave them a wall post or something asking how they are, but if I didn't much like them to begin with then I'll just leave it and maybe comment on their status sometime if I can think of something relevant.
However, with someone you barely know it's all a bit uncharted territory... I suppose with Alisa's cousin you can feel confident about messaging, since you're actually technically family now, but what of strangers you meet at parties (or indeed weddings)? And if you send a message and get no reply, does that mean that you've been too forward, or have they just not read it? Or did they perhaps read it at an inconvenient moment and didn't have time to reply. The thing is, the fact that they have either accepted the friend request, or even initiated it to begin with, you know that you're not a complete lunatic who they want to avoid, but then why no reply?

you can tell I've given this a lot of thought - actually it seems to be the story of my life to be trying to be friendly to strangers over Facebook and to get nothing in return Sad Mebbes I'm too forward.

youre not that friendly with us on facebook!

Write a rude message on their wall.

Or not.

I sparodically message the people facebook thinks I might know if I know them pretending I don't remember who they are and asking if they're that person who shared an experience best kept private (normally sexual in nature and quite perverse) with me and then ask them why facebook knows we did all the kinky nazi dungeon sex.

When is it socially acceptable to message someone..??
My rule of thumb is that it's okay to message someone when you have something to say to them.

I'd rather be here than facebook. I hate it until i get a message and then i love it. I answer messages and send them when i have something to say. My favourite is status and her graffiti.

Well from the viewpoint of society it's never acceptable to message people on Facebook. Anubis is right. Sex perverts live on the internet stay away Lars.

Also I take umbrage at the concept that Zsu is capable of friendliness.

I'm only on Facebook most of the time to talk shit with people in a holding pen.

I always see girls from my school on facebook that I'm not necessarily friends with, but they don't particularly annoy me either, I'm never sure if I should add them or not because I don't want to seem creepy.

Wait until you've left school, it's reasonable to add everyone whether you liked them or not once you've left. It's what everyone does.

and then of course there are those who simply go down their email list and send invitations to everyone.
And once you have added them as "friend" what do you get except a lot of drivel with really important stuff like: "Mary is watching the paint dry" or "Susan has joined the "I am a fan of broccolli group""  or "Let's get 5000 signatures to prevent the sun from rising on Dec. 22."
Any of you can message me anytime you want, and I never invite anyone to be a friend but MAY accept an invitation if extended. 
But don't take it personal if I don't join a 'group' because sometimes I just don't feel like extending my profile info that far afield when it gives little warnings that "this group is not part of Facebook" etc.
