    Has FB gone OTT with friend adding this week?

    When creating new accounts i could send around 150 friend request on the first day no problem. I can't send more than 10-20 now, even manually without getting a warning?

    Friend requests are to people from the same school/year

    Surely if someone created a new account they'd want to add more than 10 of their friends?

    No you are correct. Usually my first blast I can add 80-150 without issue. They're tightening, but probably won't maintain it.

    Well, of course. They don't want to go the way of MySpace... but there is a delicate line that these companies need to walk, and that's maximizing the difficulty of spamming Facebook while minimizing the impact of spam countermeasures on legitimate usability.

    Once they start effecting the user's experience their efforts are counterproductive and thus they'll return to more sensible measures. Getting a warning after adding 10 friends to a new account is hardly sensible. And I assure you that a new Facebook user getting a warning after trying to add 25 high school & college buddies is going to be turned off by getting a warning for no apparent reason.

    And what about groups? Can they take some measures if I send many invitations and PMs with the link to it?
