    I recently joined over 2k groups with my main, real, active, 5+ year old account that has a few thousand friends, and I'm getting ready to post as much as possible. It's all relevant to the groups. I expect a few bans here and there for being slightly OT or too aggressive, but it's not spam.

    I've been reading up on limits, and info is very inconsistent. Also reading up on use of email to do the mass posting. Is this method still viable? If so, what happens if I get banned from a group, don't realize it, and try to post to it again via email? Also, how do I post FB video this way? After all, it's already on FB, Is there some way I can still link it?

    Also, what sort of numbers can I work with? Start at 50/day? Do I have to drip feed if doing email ? A bit bummed reading about these limits. I want at least a track a day in over 2000 groups. Am I basically forced to create a bunch of accounts? (and use proxies, etc?)

    Thx.

    Can't help with everything but will help with what I know - btw, you do know you'll piss off your friends completely because as you start posting on your groups all your friends will get updates of some/most of your posts ;)
    Ok, so here it goes :
    - 2k is a lot, i'd say you should be safe to post in ~ 500 groups per day if they are well chosen and they don't mind what you post. The problem is this, if you get banned from a couple and some people in those groups report your posts as spam, it doesn't matter that they are not, fb will penalize you for 1-2-4 weeks and you won't be able to post for that time, you might also need to verify your phone/id if you go over-board. The most important thing is to go through those groups see how the posts look like, how active they are and don't post in the groups that don't look permissive enough.
    - the fact that you say it's not spam is irrelevant, if people in those groups don't like it and you get reported fb will take action, there's no one to complain to
    - no idea about the emails
    - yes, start small especially to test that all groups are ok with you posting what you post, ideally do as you said, get several accounts, several proxies and split everything between them.

    you might be bummed that you cant' spam the shit out of Fb ( pardon me - do marketing :) ) but thy didn't really build the platform for this, rather for human interaction, you will need to constantly think of new ideas to push things to the limits to do what you need to do as they won't provide a safe way of doing it .

    It's risky to use one account.
    Try several accounts and proxies.
    You may use massplaner or ninjablaster type software to post in groups. It will save your time.

    Damn. I was afraid of that. I've got a ton tied up with this profile (using my real name) and the main page it supports. Maybe I should just do ALL group posting from other accounts. I'm relatively new to FB (acct has been largely inactive for 5+ years). I didn't realize friends got notices if I posted in groups. This is true if they have notices OFF for that group? I've got a bunch of friends in same industry, so in a LOT of the same groups.

    It's gonna take a while and a ton of work to rejoin all these from other accts. I don't have any fake accounts (on FB), so this brings up a fw questions. I've got 25 private US proxies already, and probably getting more, so having 1 per account shouldn't be a problem. Is it an issue if proxy is in NY, and account says from LA, or anything like that? I can set them up so each acct is tied to proxy in buzzbundle unless someone has better suggestion. I was planning on (eventually) creating other accounts anyway so I could do 5k friends in London, 5k in Miami, etc. Just figured it'd be easier to manage that way with the accounts keeping them categorized for me.

    Anyway, so I don't have to spend so much time trying to rejoin all these, can I just do some sort of invite from existing acct? If this is possible, is it a red flag for FB that ties my account to that one? Is it an issue if main acct is friends with them? If they are admins on my main page?

    And yes, I was planning on spamming the shit out of FB... just minding first that the groups are appropriate for the content.

    Ok, thx. I'd heard about using a mail client, but not those software names. Will look into.

    you don't need to re-join all those groups, you can just make friends with the new accounts then add them to all those groups, this way the new accounts don't raise red flags when joining too much, mass planner has a tool to do that.

    as for spamming the shit out of FB, you're 1-2 years late to the party, it's been getting harder and harder lately, you need to switch to good marketing instead of spamming if you want to keep those accounts alive for long.

    I know it's tougher now.

    Again, the groups are all relevant. (posting music in groups which allow posting music). So, it's not some sort of peril to my main acct to use it to add the other accounts to the groups? If they get banned, no chance of connection to main acct being an issue?

    Should they be friends with main acct or not? I was thinking about making them admins of main page and saying they work there. Thoughts?

    Looking at Ninjablaster, etc... but really unclear on one thing. Can any of these methods let me post a FB native video? That's most of what I'm doing. I'm assuming I could do YT vid or SoundCloud, and that it would detect the URL, then do the embed for me, but is this true with FB native?

    you could use massplanner and use the facebook share post function to share the video?

    will look into. Was just checking out ninjablaster.

    Did a few tests and yes, you can post link to status url to post FB native video. It does look slightly different than doing it by sharing from page only because link also appears along with video.
