        • Hi,
          On my app the 3 dots don’t appear. Not on my phone nor on my desktop. Further more my pages don’t look exactly the same as the sample above. Tried to refresh the app but I have the latest available version. So what am I missing?

          • I’ve no idea why it’s not available for some users. But I found something through the app, that might be work for you.

            Go to your profile > Open up the activity log (look for 3 dots under your profile picture) > Connections > Sent friend requests.
