I can only view/scrape first 400 friends off a profile? Is this a new limitation?

    I use FFAP and can only scrape first 400 friends off a person with over 2000 friends.

    1. Go to any profile with alot of friends and right click "see all" and open in new tab or window.

    Does it say "John Smith" has 400 friends or the actual amount of friends?

    I only see numbers like 400, 399, 398.

    I had a friend try it from a different part of the word with the same account and he could see the correct number of friends but i can only see the first 400.

    This leads me to believe this is IP based.

    Does anyone else experience this? If you do what is your county, if you are using a proxy, where is your proxy from?

    I think you can set the number in URL directly... and move above 400.
    Also it moves above 400 if you click the arrows.

    No it does not work for me.

    When i click the see all button beside friends on the profile it takes me to this url

    http://www.facebook.com/friends/?id=XXXXXXXX

    For every friend it will only show the first 400 friends. It shows them at 50 a page and you cannot go past page 8 nor can you alter the URL for a number past 400 with success.

    This is the URL FFAP uses to scrape friends. so when i use FFAP it only scrapes first 400.

    can anyone else confirm this happens to them too?

    Running into this too. Not a problem prior to this week. Wonder if they implemented this with the new photo tag roadblock?
