WARNING: Facebook Has Gone Cuckoo!

About a month ago I hit the 5,000 friends plateau on Facebook, which means I can’t add or accept anymore requests for friends. Occasionally someone will drop out of my network for whatever reason.

When that occurs I accept some of the requests setting in my inbox… which could be 8 – 10 per day. But, mind you, I have over 70 waiting in the que. So over the last couple of hours I got this ‘brilliant’ idea…

“Why not click on the ‘send message’ link next to the person’s name and invite them to join my FB Fan Page to connect with me, since I’m maxed out with Friends?”

I was offering them the opportunity to network with me at my Facebook Fan Page at http://facebook.dj/smmnetwork

Made a lot of sense to me!

After I sent out about six of these ‘brilliant’ invitations I got the WARNING from FB that if I continued to send those message I would risk having my account shut down for spamming.

Needless to say, I was shocked! People are requesting to connect with me. Facebook is saying I can’t have anymore friends. I offer them an alternative. Facebook says, “I dare you to keep sending those ‘brilliant’ messages!”

Can someone help me out here? What’s wrong with this picture. I know I’ve been a little stressed out recently and maybe my gray matter is a little foggy and I can’t think straight.

What are your thoughts on FB’s response? Thoughts please. πŸ™‚

    my thought is that 5000 friends is a lot of friends! How do you know who’s who? Are you running for office soon? LOL. It’s obvious your really popular. Just put a big sign on your Face book page invited new friends to a different page or invoke your vacation note and tell them through that way. good luck with all those friends!
