Just a note, if you send me a Facebook friend request and the following applies:
a) We have no friends in common
b) I don’t interact with you regularly on other social media platforms
c) I go to check out your page and it’s all posts selling your book/game/what have you, I’m not accepting the request.
d) Or we do have friends in common and you just send me a request w/o some kind of hey, we have a lot of people in common I’d like to add you, or something I’ll likely ignore your request.
I will block you if you keep re-sending the request or try to circumvent my lack of response by contacting me on other social media. If you wish to know what I’m up to, conventions I’m appearing at, etc, then please follow my public figure page.
