So I recently logged back onto facebook after not touching it sense i made it in 2011. And I started getting bombarded by friend requests from people I know but don't really count as friends. I have seen articles from 2012 complaining about their facebook account sending out friend request without their knowledge. Is this still a problem in 2014

As someone who doesn't use FB I wouldn't really be able to say, but perhaps if you haven't used it in 2 years they have just built up naturally?

I get very, very few friend requests, despite having many "friends of friends", so I don't think so.

A lots of people import their email contact to facebook without realising it.

So, if you ever sended an email to someone on hotmail or gmail, most likely, facebook will import their contact and send you a friend request.

 

Since you havent been on facebook for the last 2 years, you have 2years of people importing their contacts (and adding your email at the same time)

When you did came back, facebook just send you all thoses request one shot insted of one by one over the past 2years.

 

Theses days, I'm pretty much just receiving friends request from people I work with

I am pretty sure it doesn't,your case is just the result of two years of accumulated people who knows you remembering your existence and trying to add you to their circle.

Won't be your email, it'll be their email address adding you if you have emailed them etc.
