    hey Guys, I got an account with multiple followers, but I'm noticing something extrange, everytime an user try to add me as friend, the followers instead of increase, decrease, I mean, based on the amount of likes and activity, I know nobody's ufollowing.

    Does anyone else experienced this?

    You are saying every time a user tries to add you, then they are called as friends and may be they follow on first and they will unfollow to you.
    If you are buying followers then that could be the big reason for unfollowing.

    If you are buying followers most of them are bots. Once those accounts are flagged they go away. I recommend you download one of the apps that allows you to see your analytics of followers, etc. then you can better asses the situation. Hope that helps.

    No everyone following me is real, whats happening is that everytime somebody adds me the followers number gets reduced, for instance if I have 5000 followers and 100 people follow me then the number show will be 4900

    Are you using multiple outlets to purchase your followers? Sometimes FB catches on so you might want to change up where you are getting them from.

    It sounds to me like a phenomenon that we're just noticing and that actually FB are getting quite brutal with regards to what they think are Fake accounts...real or otherwise.

    We're notice a discrepancy between what FB are telling us that we have as friends and what the utilities are telling us are "active" friends.

    For example we have two accounts with 4,890 and 4,959 friends respectively but they always seem to come up as only around the 3,400 level when it comes to being of any use for automation. We're now putting this down to the fact that somewhere along the way (and for perfectly understandable reasons Facebook aren't letting on) FB are now "taking out" some old accounts if they are no longer active for a certain amount of time or have profiles that to them look like fakes.

    Either way there is definitely something going on.

    mighjt be possible, in any case after "loosing" bout 40 friend the count started increasing once more... FB's becoming a pain in the ass by the day.. also if I add some bikini girl or so, seems like the script detects possible "nude" content and if i try to post it again I find that sometimes FB has banned the image (no signs of user reports)

    I think that FB has a tiered system that flags accounts according to how spammy they look or have the potential to be. I also think that this algorithm is constantly changing on its own and evolving based on previous and current data. If this is true, an account that has any data on the profile that may have been flagged in the past(by you or others) might be penalized accordingly in their tiered system(not always an outright ban but rate limit's and filtering). What I would recommend is to put all of the accounts on a cool down and start doing things as organically as possible for a week or so. Give the profiles some credibility by not advertising at all and only doing things that normal people would do on a normal fb profile(no mass advertising,mass adding friends,posting excessively etc). Also post some ORIGINAL content and pictures. Hopefully that will lift any sort of restriction or bias that FB is imposing on your accounts. IMO the best way to approach advertising with minimal risk on fb is to assume that they have a massive database and they store any and all information that anyone submits to potentially use it for anti-spam measures. Meaning url's,ip's,emails,pictures, and anything that FB is able to obtain will all be integrated and cross referenced accordingly to strengthen FB's anti spam system(proactive AND reactive).

    This is all theory but i've had to do this in the past with accounts that ive overused and abused but were not banned/warned and it helped out greatly.

    Those friends you accept were "only followers" before you accepted the request. Now when they are your friends they are automatically your followers and reduced from "only followers" list.
