    How do they do it?

    I've seen it all over facebook.

    Some guy in his boxers makes an account with some girls picture, adds 4 friends, makes an event that drives traffic to a CPA offer, and for some reason the event also sends out like 500,000 event invites all over facebook

    How is this done??

    EXAMPLE
    HTML:
    http://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=113861658656936

    They Probably Pay For It By Using A Facebook Ad, But That's Just A Guess.

    Maybe it went viral? He could of used an ad with a big budget. Some kind of powerful software? There are a few possibilities...

    They can be inviting people to the event in many different ways. Below are a few examples.

    1) They own a huge fan page and they create an event for it
    2) They own a huge group and they create an event for it
    3) They are inviting friends from multiple accounts to the same event

    Interesting, I would agree that it has to be one of the 3 that the above poster said.

    REALLY you don't wanna be doing any of this shit, the way guys are doing it is using hacked ( phished ) facebook accounts. I am not saying the above methods don't work. BUT when you see 1K + confirms a second on IPad email submit, it's using hacked accounts
