    Hi Guys;

    I'm new on here and have a quick question. I've been trying to build a facebook profile for marketing purposes. I managed 250 friends organically but now I need to step it up a bit, so I've opted for facebook blaster pro.

    I scraped about 5K IDs but when I started to send out requests (25 at a time) FB blocked any outgoing requests for 3 days.

    It also prevents me from adding a lot of people.

    Is there a way to 'Validate' your account to prevent this?

    Thanks in advance.

    I've started a new profile and have began to add people who i've asked to accept the requests.

    I'm thinking that the first month or so is a probationary period of sorts, and any large amount of outbound requests will have your account flagged.

    Having the first 50 requests accepted will probably put you in the clear though.

    Does anyone have any feedback on the above?

    I think facebook has recently increased their security measures bigtime, and believe they have tightened up on their friend request limit. Im currently using FFAP to automate friEnds request. Most of my accounts have around 300friends on them each where i have been sending on avg 20 friends request/day wihout fail. But the pass 3 days or so, ive been getting a few warnings and friemd request blocks.
    So i dont think its to do with clearing the initial probation period, its just a matter of fact that facebook has become smarter in preventing suspicious accont activity.

    They have REALLY tightened up their security. My record so far is a 14 day block. Probably some POS reported my profile.

    Jan, if your just looking for an account for marketing purposes, you might just want to buy one already filled with people. You can even get targeted ones if you need.

    They were pretty cheap last time I saw them.

    I am located in a very small nation (not gonna be specific as I am sure FB monitor this forum ;) ) - So I doubt there are ready profiles available.

    I am not after spamming people with links - but simply having a base of say 10 profiles with 5000 friends each to help develop pages for the Brands I handle.

    I am taking it really slowly - adding 5 friends each day off each account, uploading pics, posting comments and other organic activity. I have a friend that has a very well established personal account. She adds about 25 random ppl a day no problem. So I am certain that account age is a factor in the algorithm.

    No, you should buy friends filled accounts.
