What Happens if you Cancel Sent Friend Requests on Facebook:

If you cancel your sent friend request on your Facebook, all of the things are not affected even the users cannot get notices in some cases:

1. About Getting Notification

If you are looking for the answer to the cancellation of the sent friend requests or your friend list, you need to know that the person would not get a notification if you cancel the sent request or delete him from the friend list.

2. Following the Person

If you don’t know what happens when you send a friend request, you are already following that person automatically. This is the default setup of Facebook that enables one to follow the profile you add as a friend even after the person did not accept your request.

3. Messages Location

When you are on the waiting list for someone’s friend request your sent messages will be on their message requests as well. That means if you send a message to a person who is not on your friend list will appear in the request section under the messages section instead of appearing on the chat.
