First of all, how many groups are there on Facebook? Facebook may know the exact number, but according to rough Google estimates there are from 600 million to up to 1 billion groups on Facebook.
If you want to join a large number of Facebook groups, that is fine, but you will have to do it fairly slowly on a day by day basis. If you try to join too many groups at once, you may get a message from Facebook that you are restricted from joining groups on Facebook.
Usually, this restriction lasts for one week, but if you are a habitual abuser of adding too many groups too quickly there may be more severe penalties in store for you.
I am wondering how many of you have every faced this situation on Facebook.
I am taking a survey about joining Facebook groups with 3 questions.
1) On average, how many groups do you join per day on Facebook? __________
2) Do you join a fairly consistent number of groups per day? __________
3) If you have ever been suspended for joining too many groups, do you know how many groups you had tried to join in the last 24 hours when the suspension occurred? __________
Please post your answers as comments below, and I will tabulate the responses and report back the results.
