Facebook application developers can now send up to 5 emails per user per day

Several months ago, Facebook started telling the developer community it would probably deprecate its notification email feature, though it never gave a specific date as to when or how that was going happen. Then, a couple weeks ago, Facebook created a new mechanism for  apps to send email to users, notifications.sendEmail – though the new method included a 1 email/user/day limit. This week, Facebook announced that that limit has now been upped to 5 emails/user/day.
