I have more than 600 friends in facebook. I know most of them. I've known them in places I have traveled and also had the chance to spend time with them. I dont like adding people I dont know but I have added a few people because they are my "friends" in some applications I use in facebook.

I tried to do a friend request to a celebrity . . . and I got that same Facebook message. That person had just a tad over 5000. Now, I would think for the average person, they would never get to that point, unless they are adding anyone from left to right. I have close to 200 now - and all these people are folks that I personally know. I'm still far from 5000 and I doubt I'll get there.

i have around 200+ friends..and i'm not really the adding type..i prefer to approve friend notifications that to send one..actually i have another account for the people i've been meeting online and i have over 500+ friends there and i've also encountered adding one person and receive the same message..that person has 2,000 friends so maybe that's why..

Hi friend.;-) I have 300+ FB friends. Some of them I am truly acquainted and are my true friends. Others are just virtual friends,and as my network. I tried to add some really known personalities and they got like a thousand more friends. Some have a dual page because the first one they created has already reached the limit for accepting friends. I guess when the number of friends reached to almost 2000 then it is possible to add the owner of that page.

I have about four hundred face book friends. I think the limit is something big, like five thousand.
