    ah.. okay.. I thought you were asking for the max. number of friends you can add within a day!

    and yeah Jeight is right, you can have max. 5000 for any account. Just have a look at other profiles.. there are a lot with exactly 5000.

    No way in hell can you have unlimited friends. It's not like MySpace. You are supposed to use it to connect with people you already know so when you think about it, they're being more than generous. I mean, who really knows 5,000+ people?

    Alright i have a facebook question

    How come on some accounts i start and wait 24 hours for i will add like 50 friends then get disabled but i can add 95 on an account at 2-3 second speed on my account with 820 friends. It make no sense.

    Then on other account i with 500 friends i will add 30-40 then get a warning

    Facebook is nuts they are way to advanced anymore.

    The max amount of friends you can have on a Facebook account it almost all cases is 5,000.

    Now the amount you can add per day is about 50 (spaced out). Some people say they do more but i use that as a good guide line for not getting accounts banned.

    I've seen some with 5001 too, I figured it was possibly a glitch, like if you accept 2 friends in quick succession before facebook has time to recognize the limit being reached and locking future requests or acceptances.

    I don't think it's related to the number of ignores at all, in contrast the claim earlier in the thread.

    So is there any chance that accounts with 5k friends get disabled soon.

    The limit is 5,000 for personal accounts. If you want to build up more, you need to start a Facebook Fan Page, which allows for unlimited friends/ fans.

    but friends have much, much more privileges than fans

    getting 5k fans to a page is a walk in the park compared to 5K friends

    5K is like putting all your eggs in one basket. it's better to have 100's of accounts with fewer friends than risk tripping facebook's filters with friend-loaded accounts. if you post a spammy status update the odds of losing your account is greater if 40 of your friends report you versus an account with only 500 friends where you may get only 4 reports.
