I can’t send friend requests anymore. Can anyone tell me how people makes thousands of friends? It seems like I’ve been limited from making more.

      Read my other comments.
      If you are blocked for a certain time eg. 30 days, there is no way you can do this.

      Send less request, and sent requests less frequently.

      If you have so many canceled or pending requests, you will face this problem.
      Add only those who will accept your requests.

      Sometimes it blocks those innocent people who do not do these things, but you cant do anything about this.

    deleting pending requests using the old method does not work with new timeline view facebook layout...because in that layout, clicking on friends tab only show current friends

    From Facebook:

    "Please note that privacy settings may limit your ability to see the "Add as Friend" link for some users. Also, once you’ve sent a friend request to a particular user, you cannot send another. Be sure to only send friend requests to people you know personally. We may block you from sending friend requests if requests you’ve sent have gone unanswered or members reported your contact as unwelcome."

    Concerning how people get thousands of "friends", they are usually random adds or through games such as Farmville. This helps users share resources and what not. There are "mass adders" which go through Facebook ID's and add each one, another common way people get a plethora of friends.

        You're most likely on a timeout, Facebook will allow you to add again, just only with people you know.

        Don't send requests to those who will not accept your request,
        whether you know them or not.

        So not add strangers- is a general statement, by facebook.
        For example :

        Even if your brother rejects your request,
        facebook will consider it as you are spamming strangers.
        (it will ask the person whter you know them, but not everyone will attend it.)

        Facebook can't decide whether the person your are adding is stranger or known.
        only parameter they have is mutual friends.

        If you repeat the same thing after your adding friends option is enabled again,
        Pending and rejected requests will continue blocking you from adding people.
        so read my first sentence again.

          I moved to a new state so your saying we cant use facebook as a way to make friends in the new place a person moved to. because if im right. facebooks idea was to stay connected with friends but also be there to make new ones.

    it is not necessary that people with thousands of friends, sent thousands of requests, may be they just accepted thousands of requests.

    facebook also limits you from accepting requests.

    if your request gets rejected or reported, it's the time you should stop sending requests, at least for some days.

    cancel the pending requests, if you will be banned, facebook will automatically canel them.

    less pending requests and less sending requests and lower frequency of sending request may help you.
    else you can't do anything except waiting or accepting the limit of friends.

    1) Too many friend requests sent in a quick succession is against facebook rules
    2)you might have send too many friend requests and other person not responding

    try go to Account->Edit Friends->All connections and simply delete the pending requests.

      Account->Edit Friends->All connections

      none of these exists, if you check your facebook account.

        Did you send a lot of friend requests before it was blocked? I think you just have to wait. Sorry!
