Facebook requests from ppl you don't know

I know I'm not popular, so why do attractive girls from all over the world want to be my friend? Why do guys who have 5 friends and load a bunch of extreme sports photos and have been on Facebook for 2 days want to be my friend?

These are hackers or social engineers, duh, but what gets me is the VOLUME of requests I get, probably 3-4 a week. Is that everyone's experience, or are they targeting me for some reason?

That's what it is on Instagram for me. You follow one or two swimsuit pages, and they come out of the woodwork. Also, if you manage another account that is cool, like @mcbuckeyebash Right??
