Am I the only one who woke up to this?

    Is it just me or is there a massive WAVE of new "Friend Suggestions" on Facebook?? I woke up and one of my accounts had 3 normal requests and then 30 "Friend Suggestion" requests. Not the stupid ones that say "do you know these people", I mean actual "Suggested Friend" requests that say other people recommended that I become these people's friends.

    Anyone else getting this?

    Well don't be sad, they aren't Friend Requests, they are the "this friend was suggested by ---------
    type things... so you end up requesting them anyway

    Yeah, I figured out what it was...and I feel really stupid now. I had suggested all of my friends to another one of my accounts like a WEEK AGO.. they just showed up as suggested friends to add TODAY! Here I thought someone had got onto my "real" profile and sent these requests out.... I'm an idiot nothing to see here, LOL. My mind had completely forgotten what i had done a week ago.. didn't expect THAT much lag time i the friend suggestions.

    For some reason, a lot of my accounts have been receiving more suggestions lately, I am not sure why though.

    I have an account with 3800 friends and it got 1670 friend suggestions... some of them are from my own fake accounts and I know for a fact that I didn't make any friend suggestions with those accounts.
