With the new Facebook layout (timeline, etc.) friend requests are made with one click (the old pop-up box doesn't show up anymore). I tried to send a friend request to someone I hadn't seen in a while with a personal message included but I didn't see an option to do so. Where did the option to send a message with a friend request go? Or is it just gone?
Facebook has removed that feature (Sending a message during a friend request). Instead, you can message that person just before or after you make the friend request. The Message button is located near the Add Friend button.
I know how to send a message without a message button it is simple - Put this in your URL bar
https://www.facebook.com/messages/[id or name] and you can send a message right away with friend request send or without.
