What's the friend request limit on facebook?

Does anyone know the limit to the number of friend requests you can submit on facebook?

I've stummbled across things like my old school and college and started adding people from classes, etc, then been told to "slow down or I'll hit a block".....then been blocked!

This has happened on two occasions and I don't want to lose my account.

Although I'll admit I was a bit over-zealous when I found everyone, does anyone know what these limits are set at so I can stay within them?

It will also block you and ask you to remove your friend requests if two people have answered that they don't know you outside of Facebook.. I don't know what sets off that question, whether it's a certain number of friends in common or what. But it's extremely annoying to get blocked. After all, a person can refuse the request, unfriend someone or block someone if they don't want to be bothered.. or they can set their preferences to not allow the friend option.

I lost count how many friend requests I send but I got blocked from sending friend requests twice. How do I contact facebook to tell them about this issue, it's really annoying because I know everyone I send friend requests to. Please help!

They started this annoyance thing, where you can only request like 3 a day..I too was blocked a few weeks ago, for trying to request three friends! It made me upset because in my opinion, it isn't considered "annoying" to ask like 50 different people a day. Now if you were asking one person 50 times a day, then I can understand, but different people...now that is plain stupid. But that is why you were blocked cause you requested a bunch at once. This is something new, cause I too sent out tons of requests when I found my schools.

I know that I add about 50 per day. I try not to go too high per day, or they suspend your ability to request a new friend for a day or two.

I just looked it up and apparently you can have up to 1500 friends on a friend list and can have the same friend on more than one list.  I'm not sure if that means you can have more friends in total but at least you know now you can have as many as 1500 Smile

i have some freinds who have thousands on their freinds list one of them is nearing 5000. i think their is just a limit on how many you can do at one time. my suggestion is to do about 10 every hour. i have just been blocked for 4 days its a pain in the butt.

I had been blocked for seven days and now i know the cause. What happens to be is a bug on facebook which keeps record of every moment your on facebook. the block happens to those persons who keep on adding friends without stopping continuously or send message to all friends at a time. Now the working:- how does facebook know about this, right? The bug which i mentioned earlier records your activities and if you keep on adding friends at a very fast rate, the bug automatically logs you out and gives a warning surely because there is a program in the bug which makes it think that you r illegally adding friends with the help of a BOT.
And ultimately if you continue to do this and get the facebook warning consequetively you'll get banned at the last time(i think facebook gives 4 warning b4 you get banned and i'm on the 3rd one).
So my advice would be to keep it low 4 a while after you start adding friends and keep a difference of 3 seconds per request and keep it to 50 per day and one more thing leave an hour of gap after 20 requests. So dat's all folks. And I'm trying to create a facebook program which will let you add as many friends you like to add and you'll also not get caught on doing so.

Re: What's the friend request limit on facebook?

I don't know actually, but i'd suggest getting in touch with facebook if its not in the terms and conditions or on the help pages. That way you can be sure- it could be because you added loads of people in a short space of time, but again i'm not sure if that makes a difference.

 

Hope you get it sorted out

I've done as many as 55 in day without any warning. However my invites were sporadic. 10 here...10 more an hour later.5 more 1/2 hour later. If you try to do them all at once you'll get a warning.
