    Someone recently said on another thread around 18-30 or something is safe.

    Don't send too many because its not worth it. Just send a few and you will end up keeping the accounts for much longer.

    Try sending lumps of friend requests with about 10 seconds delay ( if you are using a program ).
    So, send some Requests between 10.15-10.25, from 10.30 to 10.40 send some more requests.

    The important thing is to vary it up.

    However for a close-to-definite answer, you should be able to send up to 80 seperate messages before being banned/warning.

    Sending this many is too risky.

    Facebook is banning for smallest things now.

    You shouldn't send marketing messages through facebook at all. It is a complete waste of time, as it isn't the method of choice for facebook's TOS and it isn't the way to do it anyway.

    You have to think of facebook as any other blog or forum you post on. It isn't about giving messages that people read even less than email. It is about posting on your offers on your own wall so that your followers/fans can see the post for themselves.

    Post it up there once every 4 hours or so, to keep it fresh in there minds, along with all of your other posts. You have to work the social side of it, because if they only think you are trying to sell them something, they will ditch you in an instant. Interact for 20 minutes a day in some of the games or posting, etc...

    If you become a part ofthe active community and put in the time, like you do on any given forum, blog or other community project, you will make your fans respect you and take interest in what you are doing.

    To spam these people with marketing and sales messages will eventually get you banned instantly, not just for sending a few at a time but any at all, as it is unsolicited sales content and against their rules.

    PRevent yourself from being put at risk and use your wall as a bulletin board for your business and let the user follow you as a fan, friend and member of your facebook friends list, not as your next victim in a spam scam. It ruins your reputation for business as well as makes the regulations tighter and tighter when people don't work within the means of the options given.

    Blackhat is about finding methods and tactics to bend the rules and use TOS against themselves with their own loopholes, not to break them. People simply don't get that breaking the rules only makes the owning powers that be make it that much hard for them to simply bend later.

    Food for thought.

    aftershock2020 thanks for your long answer,but i know lots of pepole that just create lots of accounts and spam other users and make lots of money
    and this way it faster then build trust profile and get friends or fans.

    I agree that your way will be for longer time but you need to put lots of time into building your trust, and i think your profit will be higher if you buy 100's accounts and spam with them instead of spending time in finding fans or friends.


    thanks

    No problem, to each their own. Just offering an alternative p.o.v. and method to spamming, as it is very limited.

    Also, I will have to disagree with you on your claim to have better profits with the spamming method...faster profits, absolutely, but not better.

    Think about it like this, ( as it may be of interest to someone looking for just an alternative method )...

    Your investment for spamming facebook:

    # the never-ending need for creating new accounts, usernames, passwords, email accounts and ips due to short-lived cycles.

    # creating multiple fan/follower lists by adding random people to your list constantly, as they will ignore/block/report you, leaving you forever working your butt off to get more people into the list.

    # finding the offers to spam to these people, managing the ids, spamming schedules, adding new people and avoiding getting banned/caught...only to keep repeating and building the same endless loop overand over again.


    You results:

    # countless dead FB accounts, emails, ips, ids and lost/burned potential customers.

    # the wonderful world of repeating the cycle 100's of times per week without anything to show for your efforts.

    # MAYBE a $100+ per day, at best, for probably 5-10 hours of work per day to run a spam campaign.


    - Compared to -


    My investment:

    $ 1 safe, secure and respected id per site project only, which FB allows.

    $ 15 -20 minutes/day screwing around in games and posting a friendly offer on my wall to those who are interested or know someone who is, in the service/product I am promoting. This time frame allows me time to get into my network, check my game standings, respond to what needs it and post two ads twice a week, recommending my stuff.


    My results:

    $ a steady and residual income of $1,200 - $1,500/gross daily profits.

    $ a 10k+ member list of stable clients that extend strictly from my fan following on my network of sites. My lists are growing an average of 20+ members per day, across the board.

    $ members request to be added to my list because of my game ranks, my willingness to help in sharing items through those events and am respective of their being on my friends list. I gain people through trusted associations of those already on my list. I don't have to search for anyone.


    Now, with that said...

    You stated " i think your profit will be higher if you buy 100's accounts and spam with them instead of spending time in finding fans or friends "

    I don't have that overhead investment, cost nor trouble with having to contact them, sort them, etc. People come to me, I add them to my list and they see the ads I post on my wall only.

    It's that simple. Eitherway, no matterwhat method someone may choose to use, I say ' be sure and do what you are most comfortable with doing '.

    Best of luck with it.

    Great advice FB are going to get ever more sophisticated. Bending the rules is the way to go, while supporting some core content or offer that is valuable to the user. Too many people are still going for the quick spam.

    Thanks for saying so.

    I help where/when I can and always try to stick above board on my methods, as I don't want to waste time for anyone with methods that cause more work than R.O.I. balance.

    Note: Please use thanks button, guys. It is what it is there for and keeps the threads clean of ' thank you ' posts.

    Keep breaks, otherwise you might be permament banned sooner. Do not send any abusive messages, becouse if someone reports you, you might get banned for that too =)

    Maxium number of messages what i suggest to send in 1 hour is 10 messages. Or get alot of accounts with differend IP:s and friends and you can send 10 message from 1 account in hour, if you have 10 accounts, you can send 100 messages in 1 hour =)

    Cheers!

    There are no need for fan pages, nor emails, nor spamming ads on other people's walls, etc.

    There isn't anyone to email or post to other than your own wall if you do it correctly and not try to force-feed someone into using your product or service. It is easy and simple, however, it does take a time investment of a few minutes per day during the work week and the interest in your potential clients being strong enough to actually make sincere friendships.

    Don't force it, just go on there and try to hang out, play a couple of games, build a list of ' friends ' and then, ask them if they ever need it if they will use you.

    It isn't a marketing method, it is the byproduct of hanging out on the network as a member first. The funny thing is that if you don't sincerely use it, you will never be able to successfully sell through it on any substancial level.

    I really enjoyed reading this . I came to this site while researching and trying to understand how many emails I could send to my friends on Facebook to like my page. My purpose is not to spam but want to build the "like" number. After ready your notes you got me thinking. I used to work in the email marketing business and it was lucrative (for my boss ) but it was exactly as you describe it. Shotgun approach. They emailed as much as possible, what ever list they had, and burned their IPs but they made money... Lots of it. I'm wondering what ads you selected or from whiqch advertiser you get them ? Because very few want to advertise on Facebook. Making 1k a day is extremely lucrative and actually better thanemail marketing at this point... This post is old but if you can answer that would be great.
