A landmark again. 1500 friends and counting.
Despite no major breaks since 1250, the last batch of 250 has taken the longest time to form. It took 76 days.
Just how fast have new friend requests dropped in recent times? 500 was reached on October 16, followed by 1000 on December 16, and 1500 on May 16 (it seems that the 16th is a good day for these things). The slowdown is painfully obvious.
