Connecting on Social Network Sites

I have reached the point where I'm receiving numerous friend requests on Facebook and connection requests on LinkedIn from people I don't recognise. I've decided to list as friends on Facebook and connections on LinkedIn only people I've:

If I've sent you a link to this page in response to such a request - usually with a "Have we met?" - it's because I don't immediately recognise you. Here are a few possibilities:

In order to keep my request queues clear, I'll generally delete/ignore requests from people I've not managed to identify after about a week. You're welcome to send another request later if you wish.

At the time of writing (May 2014) I have a large backlog of such requests in both systems, I'm sending "Have we met?" messages with links to this page to all of them with a view to clearing the lot out in about a week's time.
