    If scrapping Facebook IDs for ad purpose violates Facebook TOS, why does Facebook has the option of using Facebook IDs for custom audience?

    Because you can collect them in legitimate ways and advertise to your customers.

    I have the doubt on that. You could easily get 10K Facebook IDs in a second with API.

    You need them in second so its not legit.

    I've spoken in depth about this with Facebooks advertising department in Netherlands.
    The consensus is it does not break TOS if you log onto each users page to retrieve their ID.
    Well we all know that's not going to happen.

    If you upload a large size of IDs for custom audience, will it get you into trouble.? What is the largest number of UIs have you ever uploaded without getting into trouble?
