Don’t Say I Didn’t Warn You

Facebook is kicking users off the site for… using the site?

For many, Facebook has become an indispensable tool for managing their social lives. But all the friending, messaging and poking on the online social network has created a hazard: using it too much.

Elizabeth Coe found out after she sent 100 friends and professional acquaintances a link to her company’s Web site. She got booted.

In an e-mail a few days after she sent the link, Facebook said her account had been disabled for “persistent misuse of the site.”

Sounds like the social networking giant is struggling with growing pains. They need to be careful to avoid alienating their users like Friendster and Myspace did. I’ll be following this as it develops.
