I just tried to add a new Friend on Facebook and a message popped up that I thought at first was some kind of Facebook developer practical joke: “Sorry, this user already has too many friends.” Well, how nice for them.
On Facebook, 5,000 friends appears to be the upper limit. I guess it makes sense. Dunbar’s number puts it at only 150, maybe 230, tops. And even for those of us who use Facebook for business networking as well as keeping tabs on old friends, 5,000 should be more than enough.
