Facebook Has Limitations

our page, but is a security measure that was put into place by the billion-dollar company.  We had people inundate our profile with “friend requests” over the weekend.  Many of those people sent us suggestions to “Add Friends.”  In the process of adding friends, which we diligently attended to, we encountered the message, “Sorry, you’ve exceeded the limit for adding friends.”  We may or may not be able to send out friend requests in the future.  That is a question we have yet to find a definitive answer to. The ability to add friends is available to any Facebook user, but, as it turns out, the company has placed the security measure in place to keep people from “spamming” and recognizes the amount of requests send in a given period of time.  When you exceed their pre-determined ratio (requests-time), your account is prevented from being able to send friend requests. We appreciate the security measures put into place by Facebook and realize that they were put into effect to protect all of us from unwanted invasions by people with less than good intentioins.  We can still accept friend requests that are sent to us, but can no longer request people to be join our list of friends.  If you’d like to become friends with VicksburgDailyNews.com on our Facebook page.  Send us a request… we’ll gladly accept.  Just head to www.facebook.com/VicksburgDailyNews and add us to your friends list.  By the way… that link with take you straight to our “wall” not our info page.
