I recently joined facebook and so far I really enjoy it. I have reconnected with old friends that I have not seen is several years. Although a newbie to facebook, I do enjoy catching up with old friends and I can even catch up with my kids, while I', out on the road.
you can accept a friend request and have their access to your personal info as limited. I do have some facebook friends where I don't want them to know my personal information that is available to my friends, so they are set to limited

I must admit to being a bit of a facebook addict. My main addiction - Hatchlings! Followed closely by Bubbletown and the Bejewelled Blitz game.
As for friends - I've caught up with a lot of people I know and had lost contact with. Funnily enough, I was friended by a girl who was a student at my old high school, and was doing some mentoring of her. Imagine my surprise (and hers) when she mentioned something about her mum (also an old girl) and discovered that her mum was one of my best friends at school!!
Now, daughter knows far more about her mum's school days than she probably should........
Jase - I only want actual friends to be attached to me So to me there's no reason to approve someone who I'm not friends with. What would be the benefit be, if I don't know them? To have a higher friend count? I'm not sure I see the advantage to saying yes. I'd be flooded with "news" about someone I don't know.
So really for me, either someone is an actual friend and I connect to them, or they aren't. My concern is what they see if I choose NOT to connect to them.
Lisa, I dont' think you should worry about it, if they dont know you then are well within your rights to refuse. Why worry what they think I'm sure you won't be the first or the last to refuse someone..
