Easy questions. I searched around in the forums but couldn't find a comprehensive answer

I manually invite people to be friends on Facebook. Some of them accept, others decline. Usual stuff.

3 questions for you:

a) But should I delete the pending invites, from time to time?
b) Will having hundreds of them look suspicious to Facebook?
c) How can I make sure I don't re-invite these people?

a) yes. at some point you'll get a notification from Facebook saying you won't be able to send any more requests until you delete the pending ones. i generally give it 2 ou 3 weeks, a month tops if i'm busy. i then block those profiles so i know not to send another request to the same person and risk my profile being reported for spamming.

b) one of my accounts had about 900 pending invites. the account was blocked and i was asked to identify my friends to unblock it. of course i have no way of knowing if that happened due to the number of pending invites or because there were too many people saying that they didn't know that person.

c) please refer to a) :)

i grow 5k friend profiles that way. it's very time consuming but it's a great way to get highly targeted friends and likes.

Thanks so much, that's exactly what I was looking for
