    I have some Facebook accounts that have reached the 5,000 friend limit. Anyone who has achieved this amount of friends knows that the friend count will fluctuate up and down (sometimes even over 5,000 for a short period of time).

    However, what I cannot seem to figure out is when my friend count goes down to let's say 4,980--it will quickly jump back up to 5,000 and I have not sent out any friend requests on these accounts in months. I only manually accept certain friend requests that I receive. How is this happening? Does anyone have a clue?

    Thanks in advance!

    Maybe people deactivating their accounts, then reactivating them.

    I find the opposite. My 5k pages always lose 10-15 per day. I assume it's BH accounts getting disabled:)

    Exactly, and I do not know where these new ones are coming from, especially 20+ in a matter of seconds when I have not sent out friend requests on these accounts in months. Very strange.

    I think they are in que or something like that. I think facebook only can handle 200 request at the same time.

    So let say you ignore incoming page request from your friends, it keep popping up new ones after you ignore them so.

    Is just what i think! :)

    Thanks for your input! That could very well be the case!
