Once you accept their friend request, they gain access to a lot of information about you, to be used for who knows what purpose.And once you've accepted the friend request, they get access to all your friends, so they can send these requests to all your friends, and the page will note that the requestee has a friend in common, increasing the chance the requestee will accept the request.
