Are You a Facebook Whale?

I learned a new term tonight from Robert Scoble regarding Facebook:

People with thousands of friends are called “whales” by Facebook employees. Only a small percentage of their user base has more than 1,000 friends.

And how big can a whale get?

There is a limit to the number of friends you can have: 5,000. This is there because of technical limitations. After you reach 5,000 you have to remove someone before you can add someone else as a friend.

I’m pushing 200 so what does that make me? A dolphin? Tuna? Snook?
