The Facebook friends feature is arguably the best feature on the Facebook platform from its inception to date. Come to think of it what would Facebook be or rather how Facebook would be like if there are no friends on the platform? I mean, just before today I have never thought of the possibility and until now I never the importance of Facebook friends.
Facebook as a social media platform can be used for basically two things. It can either be used for professional or for private use. For professional use in the sense that it can be used for business purposes. While for private use is where it is used mainly for socializing.

More Information on Facebook Friends
There are some helpful facts you need to know about this feature of the Facebook platform. I will be shelling them out to you in a few. Facebook has a friends limit. What I mean by the above is that there is a limit to the number of friends that you can have on the Facebook platform. The limit is 5000.
This means that once your number of friends on the Facebook platform gets to 5000, you cannot accept or send friend requests. But Facebook lets people follow you or sent you messages, with you being able to also return the favor even after your limit has been reached.
