Update: No More 'Friends' for Leonsis

Ted Leonsis (Kevin Clark/The Washington Post)

You can't make friends with Ted Leonsis anymore -- at least not on Facebook. The Caps owner last week added his 5,001st "friend," seemingly breaching the social network's longstanding 5K limit. By Friday, anyone trying to connect with Leonsis got an automated rejection: "He has too many friends." Facebook reps confirmed that the limit still stands. Why? "Facebook is based on real-world connections," spokeswoman Malorie Lucich wrote us, "and users are encouraged to include real friends." (Couldn't bear to ask Leonsis how many of his friends are "real.")
