We’ve gotten some reports of some friend requests being blocked. How this happens:
Friend 1 sends follow request to Friend 2 who’s account is set to private.
Friend 2 does not see or respond to request.
Friend 2’s “follow button” is grayed out to Friend 1.
Friend 2 no longer has original notification from Friend 1, and is perpetually grayed out to Friend 1.
This is currently being investigated and if there are any breakthroughs I will update this post. Thank you for your patience with us!
