No sooner do I discover the new personals ad on Facebook that I start getting flagged for sending too many messages. It starts with a warning that you are about to exceed your quota for sending messages, that you have to slow down. This message shows up every time you send a message. Then I am shut out: I can use Facebook, can receive and read messages, but cannot send them.
Now, how many messages can you send until you get blocked? I didn't send a lot, despite the Personals app. I counted them, and despite the fact it's hard to figure out from the FB message box, it's about 50 in 5 days.
Would you think that 10 messages a day is such an egregious abuse that you should get flagged because of it? Would you think that if you send a message every hour, that still doesn't count as "slowing down"?
