Orlando Gibbons wants to be my friend on Facebook?

Presumably not _the_ Orlando Gibbons:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orlando_Gibbons

since that would be somewhat spooky; there is one common friend so I think I kind of know where that comes from although I'm 100% sure I don't know this person (and very nearly as sure he wasn't born with that name, but that's his own business). There also seems to be a jazz player called that.

Maybe it's the Facebook page of some monkeys from Florida?

Oh, _those_ gibbons, of course. Not renaissance English musicians but monkeys on facebook. That makes sense :)

I do sometimes get random strangers asking to be my FB friend. After a torrent of racists, facists, looneys and spam from promotional site posing as a personal FB page I now filter them by messaging them and asking them personal questions like "Hi! Are you having a nice day? :)". That seems to scare most of them off for some reason :)

I get strangers' requests on FB all the time. Often, one or two common friends. Sometimes it is obvious that it is a ghost account or a spammer, sometimes not. People use those media in all sorts of ways and for some people it seems perfectly ok to add complete strangers who have nothing in common with them. Takes all sorts.
