Q:

Who has the most friends on Facebook?

A:

As of 2014, William Scott Goldberg holds the current record for most friends on Facebook, at 6,223. Other accounts, such as Michael Hibbert's, reached 8,942 in 2012; however, the account was removed from record listings. The record for most friends on Facebook is constantly changing.

Facebook allows users to friend up to 5,000 different users. In rare occasions, a single profile goes over this amount. Usually, profiles that have over 5,000 friends already had the number before the new limits were set. While these numbers are high, the Facebook feeds are only designed to display messages from 150 different users at a time.
