When two people would like to add each other as friends, but don't want to be the ones who make the friend invitation. This puts them in a game
of Facebook Chicken, where
they wait until
the first person gives in to making the first add invitation.
A: "Check out the pictures
of Jenny in the 80s party, it's hilarious!"
B: "Uhh, I have to view it through John, right?"
A: "Yea, your his friend, right?"
B: "Eh, we are still
playing Facebook Chicken."
A: "Serious? We've known him for 2 years!"
B: "Yea, but then
he'll think I want to be his friend."
A: "But you do!"
B: "I know, but I want him to be the first
to ask me, it's complicated ok!"
