Flickr madness 1 Feb 2007
We can hardly believe this is true but...
When Thomas Hawk tried to add a contact (called "The Searcher") on Flickr, he received the following message from the Flickr team
"Add The Searcher as a contact?
"Slow down there buddy...
"You have reached the limit for the number of contacts a user can have. To add another contact, you must first get your total number of contacts under 3,000. Right now you have 5,082 contacts."
...That's right - not only is Flickr limiting the number of contacts its users can add, it's also telling its most active users (typically the early-adopters that helped push the company into the mainstream and ultimately towards its multi-million dollar acquisition by Yahoo!) to delete them. Isn't Flickr supposed to be a social networking site?
As you can imagine, Flickr users are extremely upset.
