Everyone is using Facebook these days and the number of users having multiple accounts is also on the rise along with fake profiles so everyone of us wants to connect with our friends and family and keep sending Friend requests to people who we know or people who we want to connect to.
So the number of Friend Requests sent from our profile keep piling up and facebook keeps a tab on these numbers and penalizes your profile if many of your friend requests are rejected by the users or if you add a lot of people in a short duration of time without being accepted.
So keep in mind that you need to keep checking the number of accounts which have not accepted your friend requests or pending Sent friend requests and delete or cancel these requests regularly.
