    We've probably all seen a lot of threads whining 'bout facebook being "dead", "cracking down", etc.
    Particularly about getting your groups and accounts deleted, so I decided to give it a try.

    My quest: Getting banned on FB as soon as possible.
    The rules: No bots, just manually scraped mails.

    And I tried all the things people claim that would get you banned.
    Sending duplicate invites, requests, messages, inviting to lots of groups with nothing but spam....and of course, using multiple unverified accounts with completely fake data.

    Yes, the account was limited (and unlimited again), but so far, nothing else happened. It seems to be just a numbers game, if you don't use an bots, you can be quite sure to stay under the radar.


    Conclusion: If you get banned, you really deserved it. Stop mourning, don't be so f-ing greedy next time, and you won't be banned.

    Concerning the bans: That's what I thought, you can either use automation, and you will get a certain amount of bans, depending on what you're doing. On the other hand, everything manually will take time, but is a raher safe way to go....



    Yeah, I know they're currently all complaining about FBML, but I don't really care about that either. You can still do pretty much stuff on facebook without that damn buttons, and fancy applications,....hell, you can even monetize pages with nothing but plain text, if you're writing something they want to read...

    Err, whatever, you're right, Facebook is dead. And so is adsense. And google.;)

    IDK i have been using FB bots to do my adding work for me as well and i have only gotten one account band. I think for the most part the people who get banned all the time are trying to add 200 or 300 friends in a single sitting with no time delay between friend reqs. I couldn't agree more that people wine about this topic way too much. Here is an idea get a brain and do things the right way and you wont have a problem. :)

    Yeah thats what I have been doing, I replied to one and said that I click on a FB suggested link.

    So do you think I could let another 3995 list rip of email invites, can I do this once a day or is that too much?

    Well, that what I thought.

    Don't be so f*ckin greedy, and facebook won't harm your business.

    Well, I invite 1000 all the time, heck, last night I fell asleep and did 1250, woke up with the warning, oops, I doubt my account will be banned, only had 3 of over 70 banned and they were because the friends knew it was fake and were obsessive about outing it as a fake. I will keep you posted if it is banned.
