    I have an account (college / university niche) where id say 80% of people i add will accept.

    the downfall is that i have had to do the dumbass photo verification bullshit (i passed all them with flying colors) and didnt have to do it again.

    ever since that, i beem extra cautious (i dont even add people anymore, but still get requests since its a college niche and people WANT to be part of the community i create.

    anyways, new school year .... THOUSANDS of new students coming to school, i CANNOT risk getting banned, but i need these people on my account.

    Hence i considered the poke, anybody have experience with facebook poking? anybody get banned from poking excessively?

    What methods do people use now to mass add and avoid a ban?\


    If i add 15 people in an hour ,.... and all 15 accept within the day .... is it safe to keep on adding people that same day

    any tips welcomed...


    oh how i miss the days where you can go on and add 3000 people in a day until ur hand almost falls off.

    You can run into issues if you only go around poking and adding all day. You should only be sending a max amount of pokes per day if they are not returned. You will run into way more issues if users report you for various reasons.

    Mass adding is really bad with new accounts. Even double with no/little content.

    For instance I got banned for adding too many people (people that asked to be added!) in a day. they said I had been reported and so forth. Got 3 warnings over the course of 3ish months, and then they wiped the account with no way to recover. I posted updates and sent msgs and such too.

    It will get you suspended first unless its changed from a few years ago, I've been suspended for poking too many people too fast.
