      Facebook provides platform for sharing your thoughts, memories, and pictures with friends and family. Unfortunately, spammers are hard at work trying to take advantage of all that information, sending messages and friend requests to people they want to market to or scam. Even worse, creepy people might befriend you based on looks alone.

      To avoid receiving messages or friend requests from people you don’t know, you just need to tweak a few of the privacy settings on Facebook. Doing so will save people who get a lot of these requests some hassle, and will ensure that you don’t inadvertently accept friend requests from strangers.

      RE: How  to stop strangers from contacting you on Facebook

      Step 1: Log in to Facebook and tap on the menu arrow in the top right-hand corner, then choose Privacy Settings.

      Step 2: Click on the Edit Settings link next to How You Connect.

      RE: How  to stop strangers from contacting you on Facebook

      Step 3: Adjust the drop-down boxes to reflect the privacy level you desire.

      Tip: You’ll want to pay special attention that none of the drop-downs say “Everyone,” keeping spammers and strangers at bay.

      Now you will no longer receive friend requests or messages from people you don’t know. If you change your mind later and want to make yourself easier to reach on Facebook, you can always adjust the settings to allow everyone to contact you.

      This is for App Users as requested by Aniket above:

       

      Step #1. Launch Facebook app.

      Step #2. Tap on More from the bottom right corner.

      RE: How  to stop strangers from contacting you on Facebook

      Step #3. Scroll down and tap on Privacy Shortcuts under Settings.

      RE: How  to stop strangers from contacting you on Facebook

      Step #4. Tap on “Who can contact me?”

      RE: How  to stop strangers from contacting you on Facebook

      Step #5. Tap on “Who can send me friend requests?”

      RE: How  to stop strangers from contacting you on Facebook

      Step #6. Now, you will have two options –

      • Everyone: To allow everyone to send you friend request (By default Everyone is enabled.)
      • Friends of Friends: To allow only friends of friends to send you request.

      Step #7. Tap on Friends of Friends.

      RE: How  to stop strangers from contacting you on Facebook

      That’s it! From now onwards, strangers won’t be able to send you friend request. At any time, if you wish to allow everyone to send you friend request, you can follow all the above mentioned steps and then select Everyone in the end.

      Facebook is a very useful app as it boasts of tons of user-friendly features such as, creating events, creating groups etc. If you are fond of reading the posts of your friends or any one you like, you can save Facebook posts to read later as well.

       

      I hope this helps you in solving your problem.
