    Hello guys, so I'm planning to work on a bot for facebook; things that it will have to contain: mass account creation, like pages, comment, mass friend invite and much more. how the register part going to look like is simple; I will build a name list that will contain over 50000 names, the program then will randomly picks a name but at the same time when it's used it will not being used again! also last name is going to be generated. I will split male and woman names, and add a function that you can pick if you want to have male or woman. for every single account there will be a email created to fit the account. all these information will be saved, this is to prevent duplicates. as it is going to be used by more users so we want to prevent that. I'm still not sure if it's better so use SQL instead of MYSQL... so what you guys think SQL or MYSQL? I'm also searching for some people that have experience with C#, for those that helping will receive a fair cut once it's operating. If you guys have some nice ideas for extra features or anything like that, please feel free to comment!

    You want to develop a complex facebook bot, and you need advice on the choice between ms sql and mysql?

    Seriously?

    You have no idea what's awaiting you my friend. Good luck with your project.

    it's not that I can't do it, the reason why I'm asking this is simple MySQL is limited as it is right now, also it's slower.. I'm just asking what would be better for this kind of project. I'm Experienced with Coding, it's not that hard to build a bot... all you need is time. I have developed many software in all kind of different language's, and besides I never asked for you criticizing me but sharing your ideas.. please leave this topic if that's the only thing you can say! it's pointless.

    You have to welcome criticism my friend. It's not a personal attack against you, I never said you can't do it, I said you underestimate the task ahead of you.

    Making a fb bot is easy enough, so many without experience do it using Ubot and all. Making a good bot that will not ban the users is a bit harder.

    The problem here is, you are new to this forum, haven't contributed anything and making a big announcement but asking a trivial technical question in the same post.

    If you want people to share ideas with you, you need to start doing so yourself on other threads first. Help other forum members, share your ideas with them, and you shall receive the same.

    As for the db question, it depends if your database is hosted on a server or installed on each client.

    If it's on clients, an embedded database is more appropriate.

    If it's on a server, for a setup of your size, it's a business decision rather than a technical one. MySQL isn't slow anymore, but you will need to configure it properly. But it's super cheap and hosted anywhere. You can even find free ones.

    MSSQL is more expensive to host, since it needs ms server plus you may need asp web service as well.

    Performance wise, you won't notice any difference at all. All depends how much you want to spend maintaining it each month.

    man,sql is the language, and mysql a database management system, you can't choose between them. you can use mysql as DMS, and SQL will be the language. good luck

    Completely Agree with Parlez...

    My 2 cents from of experience of coding fb bot.

    it's fun but it's tricky and you need lots of coding experience with design patterns. Database is NOT 'very important'.

    Here's my fb bot going to release for BHW people only. (Of course free)

    well, i would take all the bots from the market, mostly ffap and fbomber since both have demo and se if i can add somethink more to mine, maybe somethink to bypass the photo verifycation thing, or make it more cost efficient

    @Mission Ashwamedh, Nice interface for your bot man. Looks really clean and intuitive. The scheduling tab is spot on.

    @MysteryGuest, please check the Programming subforum. If you are really that good, we may need your expertise over there.

    And if you do a search, you will find many other members have the same thread as yours, planning to make a fb bot and asking for ideas and suggestions. A lot of contributions and interesting conversation in those threads, worth looking into.

    Do keep us posted on the progress of your bot.

    well add me on Skype instead "MysteryGuest18", to give you some info of what I did at the moment; I made the bot able to click and send keys downfall is that's it working with points. however I'm able to use the points of the form for example the left of the form and the top which is always a absolute value. Edit :This limit on my account wont be able to let you show you the source.. sorry for that

    MysteryGuest,

    Using Sendkeys for facebook is the wrong approach man. If you wait for the sendkey to finish processing after each keystorke, it will shoot up your cpu usage. And if you don't wait for it, you will not know when 1 keypress is finish and another is starting on the webform.

    Using points.. well that will vary depending on screen resolution and size of each client. Facebook will place buttons and forms according to the user's screen.

    There are ways to get the exact position of the buttons and forms in xulrunner, but not sure it can be done with IE (am assuming you are using IE).

    ...And don't forget facebook is launching its new interface.. and that will happen over months. So your bot will need to figure out which interface the client is using and work accordingly.

    Welcome to BlackHat botting my friend, it's a whole new world of excitement.

    Yes I'm using IE, I'm still thinking about how I can exactly get the right points. But I'm sure I will be able to pull that off! about the keystrokes it's running as multithreading and did some in-depth testing, there is indeed some memory leakage but it's minimum. I have run several test on different interval and so far so good!
    That's a good one! didn't think about that thanks for the head's up! and yes it's exciting I made a lot of stuff and recently I started doing this kind of things and I call it a challenge FINALY! hadn't this much fun in ages, just have to put my mind onto it and it will happen no matter how hard it is I will succeed! thanks for the support guys

    Do post a free bot for members here, even if it's in beta stage. You will get a lot of feedback from it, know where improvements are needed. A lot of good marketing people in here, they will also guide you which direction to take you bot.

    1 suggestion from me, move away from IE..it's really bad for blackhat stuff. Everyone is moving away from that, using either awesomium, or xulrunner or chromium etc. PM me if you need links on this.

    It's 2013, nothing screams "Newbie" more than a generic IE based bot.

    Those who are still using IE are capturing every single request and cleaning/modifying it up before it goes to the webserver.
