Facebook to remove 5,000 friends limit

Most Facebook’s nearly 70 million users worldwide will never, ever hit the cap of 5,000 friends that Facebook currently imposes, but for those that do it can be a real pain (no, I’m not one of them).

To help those that are running into the cap Facebook will apparently soon be lifting this limit but no word yet on whether there will just be another, higher cap or if there will be no cap at all.

The reason for the cap in the first place is believed to be because of scaling problems, though that was never officially stated.
