Well first off Facebook is one of the leading social networks out there that does not make it easy to go spam everyone into being your friend. They actually try to make it so that it can be used to actually engage in meaningful contact.

The first thing you want to do as in any social atmosphere is to be honest. The purpose of being on Facebook is to tell people about yourself so don’t just say “I’m not giving anyone any information about me”, unless of course you just want to have a private network of friends that already know everything about you. I’m not saying you can’t do that, but if you are reading this because you want to make new friends on Facebook then you probably should include as much truthful info as possible.

Now Facebook does have some cool features that will help you also to get in touch with past friends. You can include the school (s) you went to and or companies you worked for and they will show you people who also have that in their profile.

If you have changed your name at all in your life (most commonly if you got married and changed you last name) you may want to list your past names (maiden name) in your full name i.e. Jane Doe Smith. This way when old classmates look for you it will make it easier for them to determine if that was really you.

So what if you want to make new friends that are not in your networks? That’s easy too, get involved in groups. You can also add some game apps and find people there. Usually the apps have a forum that people go and talk about the game.

My advice to you is, whatever you do BE CAREFUL. As with anything online people are not always who they say they are. Even if you have been talking to this person for years online always be cautious with giving out more information that Facebook requests, there’s a reason why they don’t ask everything. It doesn’t matter if you are 13 or 60 there are always predators out there looking to hurt someone.
