    Would it be at all dangerous to use a real phone number to verify your facebook account? Just to add people and thats it, it wouldnt be displayed.

    if you think that's too risky, then don't verify it using your real number. Instead, Use some other people's number for awhile :)

    its not risky, they just do this pva shit as another spammer precaution.

    so the account creator/friend requester bots get stopped.
