It’s Time to Lift the 5,000 Friend Limit on Facebook
Somewhere inside of that insanely genius brain of Mark Zuckerberg was a notion to put a limit on the amount of Facebook friends a person can have.
If Twitter and Instagram can allow for an infinite amount of followers, Facebook should be able to follow suit with friends. With all the technology out there and the logistics to be able to code pretty much, well, anything, there must be a way to allow for more than the 5,000 limit.
Like most people, I receive at least a few friend requests a day. Some of them I know and others I don't. That's simply the nature of being a radio personality in a local area where everyone knows you.
The difficult part is not deciding who I accept, but more of who to delete.
I'm a nice guy without a shy bone in my body who welcomes everyone and anyone who is willing to say hello or send a wave my way. There are times where I wish I could filter that aspect of my personality, but it's a difficult task for me. There are worse characteristics to have.
My job is to inform the local community about local events and happenings.
Facebook is more of a tool for me than leisure, so if there's a message I'd like to get across and share with the SouthCoast, it's that it would be nice to be able to reach more than 5,000 people.
Now, it's possible to reach the millions, but that's only if the people you know share it with the people you don't. Basically, it's a gamble every time I post. Some articles and statuses reach the masses while others go stale.
Of course, I'm aware of the toxicity and stronghold that social media has on humanity, but again, this is my job and without it, I wouldn't be able to accomplish my daily tasks – although sometimes, my Facebook is used for personal things.
So listen Zuckerberg, I'm not asking for a lot. Perhaps just double it to 10,000 for now. It's not the ultimate goal, but it's most certainly a big step in the right direction. I'm aware that this request is a bit selfish, but I'm sure I'm not alone on this.
