    What happens in that case? Facebook doesn't add the new ones? For instance if I sent 6000 friend requests using the email adresses method (mass add) I am going to get the first 5000 friends that accept me? Is there any risk of having the account closed?

    I will be pleased if you can share your experiences and/or thoughts because I sent 21000 invitations by error and I don't want to start a group with this profile to find in the end that it has been closed...

    When you have 5000 friends, any person who tries to accept an invite will get a message of "This person has reached the friend limit."

    You can have your FB account closed for being too spammy, meaning if you constantly invite people to (obvious) spam groups or if you send out 6000 events in a day.

    In my experience, it's best to have two types of FB accounts: Ones that are the sole creators of groups/events, and ones that have 5000 friends that invite people to those groups/events.

    Ahh ok. But if I have, say 5000 friends and I invite all of them -Actually I am searching for a script to invite all my friends to a group- to a group will that be considered spammy? In my personal account I have around 330 friends and I have invited all of them manually to different groups and I haven't had any issues...
