A client recently hired me to create a social networking site, and had an issue with friend approval.
Client: “I like Facebook, but I don’t like having to approve friends.”
Me: “What do you mean?”
Client: “It takes too long for someone to approve me. I want on my site for all friend requests to be automatically approved.”
Me: “What if the user doesn’t know or want the individual to be their friend?”
Client: “Who doesn’t like having lots of friends?”
