    Buying 100's or 1000's of facebook likes, twitter friends on fiverr ??

    Anyone had their twitter account/facebook page banned for doing this and how many do you think is a safe number to buy?

    (I'm only doing this to look like more of an authority in my niche rather than expecting any actual traffic from these fans)

    i was offering 2k twitter friends on fiverr, I have done about 20 orders and out of those 20, think 2 got banned - in both cases the user was able to get the account reinstated.

    To be honest though, Im going to stop the gig, I think its too much.

    I would probably say 1000 followers is the max, and if your after targeted would say 500 at the very most.

    I would also look around here, I know there some people providing the services, probably higher quality here.

    I've done a few hundred on fiverr it's been fine. As to how many your should have, look at your competitors. If they have thousands and thousands then you probably should too. If they only have a few dozen then it would be weird if you had 20k. It really depends how popular your niche is and how socially connected they tend to be about the topic.

    Of course you *can* get banned but I really wouldn't worry about it.

    Thanks. This is a 10% ban rate approx so. I'll say away from getting anything in the 1000's so. Maybe 100-300 would be safer for both facebook fans and twitter followers. I'd like to air on the side of caution.

    Depends on method As well, if they ask for password, assume they are using follow unfollow - that's what I do. I think safe is sticking at say 250 follows per day, so even if they have a good follow back ratio- say 50% then they can prob do 125 followers per day - so bare that in mind when looking at gigs and time scales.

    Also, think there is someone here who sells followers without requiring password - I'd say that is alot safer, but it is more expensive.

    Thanks for this tip. I'm going to follow people and then unfollow them ...maybe this is how some people get such high follow rates.
