What´s happening forum? Today I want to show you how you can dramatically increase your approval rate concerning your friend-requests. As this would be my very first contribution on this forum, please don´t flame. PART 1 (the-manuall-method, wastes time, uneffective) I just want to show you my results, after applying this method (I´ve added within 3 days exactly 200 people for testing-porpouses!): 205 people became my friends in the final result 6 people asked my "do I know u?", so have a good answer prepared for that, or just ignore it --> I gave them an answer, and later on all of those 6 approved my request. 3 people seemed to have ignored the request (ignore/spam/idon´t know this person). 8 people have added my as a friend during this experiment (since they seemed to have discovered me on people you could know!) or likewise ---> 98,5 % So I don´t want to bother you with additional facts, I waited some weeks (6 to be certain), without logging into the account, nor adding additional people, so if you do it wise this method should be approved as a save method, as my account wasn´t banned. Let´s start: What happens when you massively & randomly add people on facebook? They click on "Ignore" or even worse they report you as a "spammer"/"I don´t know this person". Sooner or later Facebook becomes aware that you could be a spammer and banns your account. What can be done to avoid this? --> Find "desperate-friend-seekers!", that will definetly accept your request even if they don´t know you, but are real persons (no ewhores, and similar!). Where can we find those foks? --> Twitter. Open up an account or log into your own. Type into the "SearchBox" something similar like: "Add me facebook", be creative to maximizie the quality of your results and get targeted search results. Now have a look at the results, open the links in another tap/copy & paste the addresses and make the initial friend-request on facebook. Some lady´s don´t seem to know how to make a link that works properly in their shout out´s, so please guys, be some real gentleman, copy and paste the full link and open it manually ;-))) Some kiddies even shout out their e-mails (if stupid enought! -- > copy & paste!). Well, that´s pretty much it (on part one!). Hint: start thinking "out-of the-box", you can also use that for myspace (since I do not focus on MS I haven´t tested that, yet!) and even other purposes. Part One is a very time-consumptive, but good method to gain some followers that will 100% accept your request, so it´s effective to stay a little bit under the radar and increase your approval-rates to save your account! PART 2: (the automated method) As our time is limited and as we are BHW-Members, no little internet-kiddys as seen in other forum what are we going to do? We automate the whole process. Therefore I informed myself about scripts that would allow us to do so (scraping, etc.). Unluckily those scripts would violate Twitter ToS, and you should really know what you are doing with those scripts, when applying them. Otherwise you shouldn´t apply them, just as I do. I´ll do it manuall, without scripts. Luckily I´m not very interested in getting tons of friends on facebook. I think this method has got high potential, since all those you are sending an friend-request would be SEEKING for people to add them. They aren´t just on a e-mail list you hit into your Script/Friend Adder on Facebook, by hoping that some of them will accept the friend-request. That´s it. That was my method, my contribution. I hope you liked it, and I also hope it let´s your accounts go WAY under the radar and the most important: helping you to avoid bannings. Rembember that the request-limits will still apply! I also wanted to recommend you facebookDOTcom/pages and then all those ADD-ME fanpages, for this method (it would be even easier to automate this!!), but since there are so many eWhores (male and female, both!) this site would not be usefull if you are seeking to gain potential fans/customers. So just consider this site, if you need some folks that will approve your friend-request, but could spam you in advance. Note: if you also make a friend request to those twitter-folks that wrote their facebook link into an "@twitteruserA" message, your approval rate in % will fall, no doubt. Once this method gets a little bit saturated everyones % will fall, so use with thought! ;-) Have a nice day everybody!
