I have three questions. Why Facebook doesn't deliver my messages to people which are not my Facebook friends? I made my new account and even then some people didn't get it. Facebook became very unpleasant.
Do anyone know if is possible to send a lot friend requests without beeing blocked? 
When Facebook block you when you add new friends? I know that block you when some number of them reject your friend request. But I don't know how much.
Thank you.

I don't think this is a networking topic but...  (well, social networking, but "networking" on here generally refers to technical stuff like home networks and such)

Some people have settings that wont allow you to message them.  And if
you're not friends with someone, you message can still go to them but it
will go to a folder labled "other".  People do not get notifications
from facebook telling them when they have messages in their "other"


2.  I don't know the numbers, but I'm sure a
few things factor in.  1, how many is a lot?  2, also depends on how
many people DENY your requests.  If many people delete your requests,
then facebook knows you're just randomly adding people for the sake of
adding people, and they don't like that.


3.  Again,
I don't have any idea what the number is.  My dad gets put in facebook
jail once in a while because he likes to add a lot of people just to be

Have a look here:



Basically, there is no seemingly written rule about what will get you blocked with regards to too many friend requests, just that it can happen.
