    Yea you have to load them up in outlook and then use the import from outlook feature. Just uploading from csv is buggy and dont work most of the time.

    Do you know if there is a limit to this?
    I mean, if I had say 100 K people on my Outlook address book, would Facebook safely add people or would this raise some flags?

    If you invited in moderation it would be ok, inviting the 100k at once would get your account deleted.

    the /invite.php page got one of my account banned.

    I don't get it.

    I understand that 100K, 10K or even 1K may raise a flag, but it is perfectly understandable if a normal person has hundreds of people on his address book.

    If I were working at facebook, I would be more suspicious if someone came and invited people in batches.

    And I don't think they would think we would think they would think that.
