n. On a social networking site, a person whose friend request you accept out of pity.
Consider paring down your Facebook friends to ensure that personalized search results are as relevant as possible. (No more pity friend accepts!)

two weeks later, i now have two friends on facebook (the other one is scott, who made me a pity friend).
