I have been experimenting with Facebook for about a month now. I started with a 22 million user opt-in email list with name, address, phone, email and in many cases age and sex. I sorted by state (all emails are US based). I picked a random state and geo-targeted a city. Uploaded 4 test files of 2500. Didn't get banned, but only found 5657 users to friend request. Wanting to up my odds I wrote a quick C# app to cycle through the list of emails and "ask" facebook if the emails were connected to an account. Ran my first state through and found 54% of the emails did have a facebook accounts. Started another Fresh FB account and loaded 4 more files of 2500 and this time I sent just over 8k friend invites. The number was so odd that it stood out because each file supposedly had approx 500 there were not accounts. I think I am running into a cap of sorts. I am all about testing and finding the limits and I feel like I am headed in the right general direction. From the 8 accounts I have populated I am averaging about 8% at best acceptance after the first week. Not at all what I was hoping for. I was hoping for 20% plus. Currently profiles are not individuals and I have made a point not to put too much of anything on them short of a profile pic. The one I have made a little more effor to make a few comments have performed better and gotten more people to friend request me. Also I have noticed that if my them if female based it does much better any of the others I have tested. Anybody with more experience willing to point me in the right direction to start my next testing? Or am I just being too greedy and hoping for too high a conversion rate?
