Why does Facebook block me for 30 days when I make friend requests?

Martin November 18, 2011

I’m getting tired of Facebook blocking me for thirty days when I send a friend request. I know this happens when you send requests to strangers, but I know this person! We even have friends in common, but Facebook always asks “Do you know this person?”, then it logs out my account and when I log in again I’m blocked for a month…

Is there any way to cancel this? A hacker trick or something? I’m so p***. I can’t wait that long. It’s so unfair…

    Half the people who recieve "friends requests" should be glad anybody cares enough about them to even send one. Is it really such an inconvience even if you don't know them?? Who freakin' cares, it's a SOCIAL NETWORKING SITE. Ever look up the definition of SOCIAL?? It means to be around or meet other people. I suppose you think these people with 3000+ 4000+ 5000+ friends actually know all of them?? Why are you getting blocked when you probably less than 500 friends?? (Unless of course your one of narcissistic women who have to put cleavage shots up daily just so all the losers on there tell them how great they look). Are you really worried someone's going to be "stalking" you from a freaking FB friends request?? I mean really?? Are you constantly looking out the window worried that some dewf off FB is going to care enough to actually stalk you?? If that's the case you need help. It doesn't say it's some sort of a Business Networking Site where it's clients only, If you can't handle someone sending you a "friends request" don't be on FB, pathetic babies.

      You must not do this next time.Facebook imposes limits on every feature that you access and if you cross it,it blocks you temporarily for sometime.So,wait for few days.

      May 26, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    Well obviously you've done something wrong. Just admit it, you've been friend request spamming people trying to rack up your friend count to look all popular and cool. It's your own fault, so stop whining about it and suck it up. Is it so hard to wait a month?

      Firstly,have some patience,it's required for having your account to get unblocked.If you keep commenting like this, you risk your account getting terminated.

    @ Kyle Stephens, I don't think so. A majority of the times that I tried to send friend requests before the block ended, Facebook wouldn't let me. However, a couple times, I managed to somehow sneak by and the friend requests went through during the block, but I somehow got VERY lucky by being able to do that. I wouldn't count on that happening very often.

    I got 7 days with out sending friend request

  26. Michael Gimson
    April 29, 2012 at 7:28 pm

    It doesn't start off as 30 days the first time. It starts off as 2 days the first time you get blocked, then it expands to 4 days the second time around that you get blocked, then 7 days the third time around, then 14 days the fourth time around, and then finally, it goes to 30 days the fifth time. A little over a year ago, I managed to get to the 30 day block within a course of about 5 or 6 months. When I got to the 30 day block on the fifth time being blocked, Facebook warned me that it was my final warning, and that if it continues, I would still get to keep my account, but I COULD lose the right to send any additional friend requests, but it's basically up to Facebook's discretion. After several months went by, I managed to get blocked AGAIN, but it started all over again on the 2-day block. So it looks like Facebook didn't follow through with their warning. Facebook also told me to email them and let them know if they've made a mistake and if so, explain how. I did just that. I emailed Facebook and told Facebook that I sent a friend request to someone I actually know, but hadn't seen in about 8 years since high school, and that person didn't remember me, and must have reported me. Facebook told me thank you for letting them know. I shall receive an email response shortly, but I never got one. There was also a time when I ACCIDENTALLY sent a friend to someone I don't know, someone with the same full name as a girl I know from high school with the last name Smith, a very common name. I'm in the U.S., but I sent a friend request to someone with the same full name in Canada. Surprisingly, she accepted my friend request. After I found out it was a different girl with the same full name, I defriended her. The best thing to do when sending someone you know a friend request is probably to send that person a message and tell him/her who you are, so in case he/she doesn't remember you, you can help refresh his/her memory. Of course, there's always the possibility that people don't accept messages from people who aren't friends with them, depending on how they have their accounts set up.

      is there a way to get rid of the block early?

      • Susendeep Dutta
        May 20, 2012 at 4:31 am

        You can prevent yourself from getting blocked is to have a good track record and don't use any Facebook feature too much as there's a limit imposed on it which Facebook doesn't specify.

    • Susendeep Dutta

      Do not send many request in a single day as Facebook has imposed limit on how much you can use a feature.You've been blocked temporarily and will be able to send request after sometime depending on Facebook.

    Please everyone, stop whining about how you've been blocked for asking to be friends with many people you don't know. If anyone does that to me on Facebook, I block them, AND flag them for spamming. This has happened to many of you by the sounds of it. It's your own fault. I'm closing this comment thread because the topic is officially resolved.

    • Jay.0
      February 3, 2012 at 1:06 am

      Yes, it will be the same thing.
      Doesn't matter, friends you add were suggested to you or not,

      Add only those who will not reject or keep your request pending.

      Funny thing is:
      Facebook : here are some people you may know.
      (add one of them.)
      Facebook: Do you know this person ?

      Cancel pending requests, and stop trying to send requests for  some time.

      Follow this instructions to not get blocked in the future.

      Once you are unblocked, add only those who will accept your request,
      Do not add known on unknown persons who may not accept your request.
      Be patient and less frequent.
      Do not forget to cancel pending requests if you do not get any response.

    • Jay
      November 20, 2011 at 12:03 am

      no you have to wait to add strangers,
      if they are mutual friend, you can talk to them offline or mutual friends can suggest you to others to add you, and inform about your friend request block.

      even if you send a message and ask to add to someone who is not your friend, it is possible that they will never notice your message, as your message will go to to others section if you have sent message to the person for the first time.

      • Gogood8
        December 29, 2011 at 5:40 am

        if I send message to strangers without friend request, is it possible that FB block me from sending more message?

        • Jay
          December 29, 2011 at 6:06 am

          Yes, they will block your messages just like requests.

          But it depends on the amount of the sent messages and the frequency, I dont know about the exact amount, but I know it happens.

          It may not be as strict as the request limits.

          but still do not send a message to every profile you see !

          Recently there was a problem with new settings:
          when you send a message to a non-friend it will go to others section, instead of inbox.
          so the person will not notice the message,

          but I think facebook changed it,
          because it showed me an alert when a mutual friend sent me a message. it reached my inbox.

          December 29, 2011 at 8:47 am

          thanks Jay, I see now that if too many requests sent have gone unanswered or reported as unwelome(unknown), then the sender willl be blocked. If someone send 100 request in a short time and all be accepted, then no problem.FB does have a very smart way to judge, haha

        • Jay
          December 29, 2011 at 9:16 am

          yes, frequency and number of usages are the parameters.
          Send requests less frequently,
          even if they are accepted,

          Make sure you have less than 5 requests pending when you add someone.
          Cancel rest of the requests by yourself, to be on a safe side.

          Anyone is free to add.

          But the page will be more active than the profile.

      What would be the point of a 30-day punishment if you could just cancel it? Please, think logically about these things. 

  39. James Bruce
    November 19, 2011 at 8:28 am

    You should probably just stop spamming friend requests to people, regardless of whether you actually know them or not. For it to have got to the point that facebook feels the need to block you… well, you must have pissed off a lot of users, I guess.  

  40. Jay
    November 18, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    As you know when you send too many request to strangers and most of your ewquests are not accepted, your sending request option is blocked, bow it does not matter , the person you want to send request is known or unknown.
    it is because of what you did in the past.
    it is because of the sent and pending requests.Once you see the message , "do you know this person?"
    you should stop sending requests for some days and wait till your pending request are accepted, or cancel pending requests.
    if you continue trying to add friends after you see the message without waiting for the previous pending request to be cleared or canceled, canceling or accept, you will be logged out and blocked.

    for now, All you can do is asking the person to send you request.
    and this will be easy as you know the person.
    if you can't contact without facebook, and if you can't wait for 30 days,
    create a new account , and when the request is accepted from the new account, suggest your friend to add your old account, or ask then in message or chat to do so.

    be calm after 30 days to avoid one more month.

        December 11, 2011 at 6:01 pm

        Yes, you will be able to add people again.
        Once you are unblocked,
        Add only those who will accept your request, whether you know them or not.
        Then you will have no pending or rejected requests, and no such problems hopefully :)
