    Hey BlackHatWorld-Community,

    i recently created an Application which is used to invite app_users friends to an event.
    It's asking some permissions, generates an long life access_token and stores it into my DB.
    But when i invite the app_users friends to an event, the app is getting banned after about 1000 - 5000 invites automatic with the message:

    Hi,

    Facebook's automated systems recently restricted your personal account from creating new applications. We are writing on behalf of the Facebook Platform team to let you know that any applications that were under your sole control as a developer have been disabled as a precautionary measure, which include: xx (ID #xx)

    If your account is disabled, please note that the Platform team cannot re-enable your account. To find out more about your disabled account, please visit this page of our Facebook Help Center.

    Thank you,
    The Facebook Platform Team


    One App which i bound to a Website is still working. Are the limites different from Canvas Apps and Page Tab Apps?
    Does anyone know the limits for event invites or an workaround for this? Why does Facebook implement this Method via Graph API when its not allowed to use this?
    My biggest problem is that i can't figure out the reason why my app is getting banned. I got an correct privacy policy and placed checkboxes for the GTC. I would appreceate it if anyone know a way to fix this problem. Maybe i have to send a request dialog for event invites?

    I have no idea...

    How many invites are you sending out to friends?
    I'm thinking maybe 5-10 invites / user might stay under the radar.
    Otherwise, there is nothing you can do.

    all you can do is spin apps, make tons of apps with the same canvas url and spin them. :) if you need assistance, PM

    Thanks Grey Hat,
    i thought about the same, but i found out that there is no way to automaticly create an App. Facebook removed that feature. Any workaround there? -> PM Me

    -Racket i got my own algorythmn for inviting, the automatic system ban is not depending on the amount of invited per request (as i found out). I think it depends on the failures that comes up when someone blocked you from inviting to an event + other reasons like app reports etc... -> and doing a batch request is probably the fastest way but not App-savest way, tried it so many times.

    Anyone else? I 'm open for advice, thanks!

    if fb sees an app made < 1 hour ago start to make hundreds of requests to the api it will get blocked because it automatically assumes its spam
    just an example but invites do matter

    that one is easy. Got it already...

    You just have to send a simple APP-Request dialog and then redirect to your url in the php file the App-Canvas belongs to.

    Surely it has to be less than 49 invites per person or it will trigger the app? I posted one of these apps a while back and it had the same problem.
