    no shit. this is a limit facebook has. you should of made a fan page also and interlinked them. cos with fan pages you can still use status updates to update the members..

    [FONT=&quot]Just checked a group that has 393,833 fans and the way they message people is they do an update so it shows up as all the members having an update instead of a message.
    :)
    You should be able to update with a link to a website or CPA offer or something....

    you mean an update as just a "wall post"?

    you might be thinking of fan pages not groups????

    Hi, You can change one word in your title group and each member will receive a notification. I try it with one of my group, and as a member I receive a notification and an email from facebook : "the group name ... has changed in ...".
    I don't know if all the members receive an email. It will depend on your privacy settings ...

    As far as I know, the limit for messaging is 5000 at anyone time, thats why groups tend to not be as valuable when more than 5000 people are in them, still worth big money tho.

    You should have locked the new member join when you hit 5000 members. You can still throw them out bro.
