    I just started my first Facebook account yesterday and sent out the friend requests that it recommended for me. Now I can't send out any more, even to people I know.

    When I looked into it, I got this message:

    "Facebook is a place where people connect and share with friends, family, classmates, coworkers, and other people that they know personally. When you try to connect with strangers on Facebook, it undermines Facebook's mission and can make other Facebook members uncomfortable.

    If you have been prevented you from adding friends on Facebook, it is likely because many recent friend requests sent from your account have gone unanswered. This may be because you?ve asked strangers to be friends or because you?ve engaged in other behavior that Facebook users have reported as unwelcome. When you are allowed to use this feature again, only send friend requests to people that you already know to avoid having additional limits placed on your account."


    What is the deal here? Can anyone help me with this?

    I just registered. All I did was add the contacts that they suggested when I registered. I've been using Facebook one day and I already hate it!

    FB just did a massive overhaul to their friend adding process. With all due respect, this is not the best time to jump head first into the FB game. If you are determined, I would advise you to read the FB section of this forum, take notes, and perform manual trial and error until you find something that works for YOU and THEN scale it up.

    However, as of right now, you might want to just sit back and let the smoke clear, because this is not the last of their changes (unfortunately).

    Take Money Man's advice.
    I made the same mistake, entering the battle 1 week ago.
    I lost 500 accounts , 100 private proxies ..etc..
    Facebook right now is changing a lot, even my personal account has this limit 'cannot be sent..do you know this user personally?'..

    Cheers
