A Complicated Affair!

Hi there, Facebook.

I think we need to have a little chat.

I’ve only added about 40 new users YESTERDAY – and only tried to add ONE new user a few minutes ago – to find out that you have blocked me from adding people to my group AGAIN.

Look, I think this is getting a little ridiculous, don’t you? I mean, I’m a writer – how am I supposed to grow my fan group if I can’t add people on my friends list to my group?

Sure, I can accept their friend adds, but how am I supposed to find them later on when I need to add them to my group – assuming that you let me do so? I accept about 150 to 200 friend adds per day… how long do you expect me to wait before adding them to my fan group? A week? A month? A year?

Funny enough, you didn’t seem to care when I added 2 or 3 hundred people a day last month. Now all of a sudden, things are moving “too fast”? Are we in a relationship I didn’t know about?  😛

How “fast” is “too fast”? What do you use to determine the speed a group “should” grow? Should I add one user every year perhaps? One per month? Is there an algorithm that determines an hourly rate of adding people to groups? Anyway, what’s the worst that could happen? Perhaps your servers need an upgrade if your wheels start vibrating loose when Christina Engela adds another 60-odd new members to her group?

Again, why have a feature if you are going whine about people actually USING it?  😉

Grow up!
