Hey Black hatters, So recently, I have been noticing a lot of threads that go like: "Help! My Facebook account is locked" or "NEWBIE here! How to create Facebook Accounts?" and "How to make Money with Facebook??" etc etc As such, I've decided to write a 4 part guide on some of the ins and outs of Facebook. Listed below are the parts: [Part 1] - Intro to Facebook and good practices guide. [Part 2] - How to farm HIGH QUALITY Facebook accounts + tips on how to make your setup stronger. [Part 3] - How to get past ID verification and/or proof of Identity + why you should do so. [Part 4] - Wrapping up and how to profit off Facebook Now, i'm no expert on Facebook, i still have much to learn but the stuff i'm gonna write is based on a couple years of experience working with Facebook accounts and will help you guys clear many of your misconceptions or similar questions that have been and will be spammed many times. It can also be an opportunity to know some more stuff which you never thought off. Firstly, Facebook is one of if not the largest social networking sites in the world, with over 1 billion users. And thats good for us internet marketers! There are tons of opportunities to be made, be it via paid advertising or spamming. Facebook can be monetized in many ways which I will touch on in part 4 of the guide. Many a times, i see people jumping at the opportunity of monetizing Facebook and giving up too easily due to roadblocks and setback from Facebook such as identity verification, suspensions or bans. Honestly, these can very well be avoided or minimized if you take some necessary precautions. Facebook being a billion dollar company will definitely have the capability of knowing whether you are a fake account. They have little bots and codes also known as spiders/crawlers that scour through all the profiles, looking for anything suspicious and sometimes regular normal users get caught in the war between Facebook and Black hatters. Things you can do: For the most part this is the most important rule: * Act like a regular person, emphasis on the "regular". Don't go around adding 10, 20 or 30 friends a day, no normal person does that, it triggers flags on your account and the trust factor on your account decreases. Best is to add a max of 5 friends daily. Put some natural activity on your account, things like liking some posts, posting stuff on your timeline, and sharing stuff, do everything in moderation. And PLEASE, reframe from using photos of hot chicks as the profile photo, its just too fake, and if there is something called reverse image search on Google, what makes you think Facebook doesnt do the same * Do not go proxy hopping, or worse, using the same IP address that a previously banned account was on, thats just plain obvious. * When creating ads, do not put crazy budgets on the first few days, all ad accounts start off typically with a $25 threshold, which means you can spend $25 on your account before your credit card is billed, this does not mean you can only spend $25 per day, it just means how much you can Spend before being billed, however, take this threshold seriously, try to limit your spend per day according to that threshold, and increase your daily ad budget by max 50% each day. This makes your account more stealthy and reduces the chances of triggering reviews. * Do NOT re-use credit cards which have been used on other Facebook Accounts, it is against Facebooks TOS to have multiple accounts and re-using credit cards is just a dead give away. On the topic of credit cards, always make sure you have enough funds in your bank account, do not let the transaction from Facebook decline or your account can be flagged, also, manual payments, if available in your country, have seemed to be safer as Facebook does not need to worry about stolen credit cards, or fraud, they also feel "safer" knowing you have already paid for your ads, so thats a +1 in strength for your account. **Note though, if your ad account gets suspended with money still unspent, you will NOT be refunded, Facebook keeps the cash.(I know, crooks aren't they) so try adding funds in small blocks instead of huge chunks, it saves your money in the even your account gets blocked, do this especially if you are running a fake account or black hat ads. * One more point before i end this part, a lot of people seem to think that buying off aged accounts do the trick, and you can use them fresh off the boat, Facebook is constantly evolving and they are also smart enough to know that there are people selling aged accounts in the masses, one thing though, these accounts are nearly empty, yes they could be profiled but its very basic, stuff like sex, profile and cover picture and country is filled, these accounts are good if you let them sit on the same IP while putting activity on the account for at least a month. Typically a week is enough if you want to use it for group spamming etc. Doing this prevents your account from being banned too quickly. If you can do this, those aged accounts you get off marketplace are gonna be worth your spend. Practicing these few tips and you no longer need to be posting "why is my account always getting banned" when it can be prevented with just 5-10 minutes on your account every day. Well thats it for part 1, thanks to those that read this far, i'll post part 2 sometime tomorrow at the same time unless said so, part 2 will be in depth on high quality account creation.
