FACEBOOK DOES NOT WANT YOU TO LIKE TOO MANY CAR DEALERS!
So here's a question for all you Facebook Freaks out there; have you ever hit Facebook's "Like" limit? Most of us know that there is a 5,000 Friend "Cap" on that sort of connection, but did you know that the cap now applies to a combination of Page "Likes" and user profile "Friends"? That's right, check out the message in the screen capture below: (click on it to view full sized)
So now, if I want to like a dealer's Facebook Page I either have to blow out a friend or unlike another dealer's page... What do you think about this Facebook "Rule"?
WE KNOW THIS IS A NEW RULE BECAUSE WHEN I REMOVED A DOZEN FRIENDS AND PAGES, I WAS STILL UNABLE TO "LIKE" COULTER CADILLAC WHICH PROVES THAT I WAS ALLOWED TO EXCEED THE 5,000 TOTAL IN THE FIRST PLACE!
I think one of the reasons why Facebook is doing this is because there are a lot of places out there where businesses can buy "likes." By adding the number of pages liked to the 5000 total it, in effect, limits these foreign "like services." Of course they can always register more Facebook profiles but this is just another way to make it more difficult. I've read a few places that Facebook is trying to crackdown on these sorts of services, and of course why wouldn't they?
