    Why do so many of you wanna DO that? Psychologists believe you can only maintain real relationships with about 150 people. Are you all psycho or something? Focus more on the quality of your friendships and less on the quantity of 'friends'.

      Log in to your account and then click on Friends tab present on left side.Then click on See All Friends.It'll load a list of all 5000 friends.Then hover over the Friends button on the friend you like to unfriend.Then a option will load and click on unfriend which will unfriend that person.Go on till you get completed.This is the fastest way to remove friends.

    Easy, migrate your personal page into a fan page:

      If you see people with more than 5000 friends then it is not a bug. Most people think that there is a bug in Facebook by which you can have more than 5000 friends.
      Actually the number of friends includes your actual friends plus people who are waiting to become your friends. So if you see 5128 friends then it is possible that the person have 5000 friends and 128 people have requested to be friend but awaiting his approval.

    if you really need your facebook friends count increase over 5K then there is a simple answer is that you should contact FB support center they may help you.

    When I reached 5,000 friends, I created a business page. With those people just hit the Like button instead of sending a friend request, and it's unlimited how many "friends" you can have ... but for some reason my original Facebook account just jumped to 5,278 friends, and there are still hudreds of friend requests just sitting there waiting for approval. I don't know what to do.

    Why on earth would you need 5000 so called friends in the first place. Have you got a bet on who can get the most friends. How would you ever communicate with them all, can't see the point myself, but good luck.

    Facebook should not categorize all in the Superset "Friends" and then subset them into "Close Friends" and "Acquaintance" . Rather when you add someone, you should get the option of "Friends" (close friends), an "Acquaintance" (someone you know, mostly office colleague) and a "Relative". Then the clear and true picture will show. At one point of time, I had more than 650 people as friends in Facebook account, so one day did a reality check, and today have reduced that list to around 50, with around 20 friends, 20 acquaintances and 10 relatives. Get realistic, count your fingers that how many friends you really have and purge that list. Believe me, again you would start controlling your Facebook account, rather than it controlling you.

    You can create a group, or page, or whatever facebook calls it now. That way you can post statuses and send messages to everyone, without a limit in the amount of friends. If you have over 5000 friends, then you are kinda famous, so go for it.

    Create a second account for another 5000 friends and dual post identical status updates to both accounts? Your second account will not "see" updates from your first 5000 friends, but at least all of your friends on both accounts will see all of your updates?

    I'm not sure I could see any need for having over 5000 friends, but hey to each his or her own...

      Lots of people create both fanpages and "friend" profiles in order to network. It's a way of getting both sides, since not everyone likes to "like" pages.

    nopes, am afraid, its not possible
    same as Mike said, its not worth having that huge number of online friends. better have some true friends that u can meet and talk with, that will be better. online buddies fake the true definition of friendship

    Facebook has a limit of 5000 friends. If you see someone with more it simply is a bug in the system.

    Frankly, I don't even see the point of having or being in need for more than 5000 friends.

    1 month = 720 hours, 43200 minutes
    6 hours sleep per day = 10800 minutes per month
    32400 / 5000 = 6,48 minutes per Friend per month

    I have more interaction with people working at the supermarket or the mailman and I haven't even included reoccurring schedules like eating, working/school, taking a shower or whatever in this calculation...

      People use multiple methods of networking, even through Facebook. Besides ads, they also like to create a page to be "friended." Not everyone searches for fanpages, and some people think it's more personal.
