    Does anyone know the current daily limits for adding friends? I've noticed that manually, they timeout if you add too many at one time. What about a good benchmark for time to delay between sending requests?

    The following are limits imposed by YouTubeâ„¢ (not Tube Toolbox)
    Friend Requests:
    ~660 per day
    ~28 per hour

    From my testing you can do like 15 per 10 minutes.

    I havent added friends in over a month, but when i run i generally do a 10 min delay between every 8-10 requests. Make sure youre requesting people that would actually be interested in the material on the channel...

    if expanding the channel is your goal.

    The most i'v done is around 500-600 per day over a months time. Never saw any type of ban hammer.

    With the limits posted from tubetoolbox, it breaks down like this:

    (Rounding to 600 requests/day to stay under the radar a bit)

    1 request every 2m:24s.
    5 requests every 12 minutes = 25 per hour
    25 per hour x 24 hours/day = 600 requests per day

    Thanks for the quick answers everyone and yes, if you have any personal experience with adding friends, please share!
