    Hey.

    Been some time since I last mass subscribed and befriended people on YT. Trying to remember what happened when one befriended too many, the friend function stopped functioning if I recall correctly. So now I am asking a question to you YT gurus.

    How many people can I befriend in a day?
    How many people can I subscribe to?
    Also, as long as I stay within these limits every day, can my account still get cancelled for befriending too many?
    And... any use in befriending and purging, like a Twitter model. I mean, befriend people, then unfriend them after X amount of days unless they have befriended you back?

    Very grateful for any help with this.

    EDIT: Very late epiphany here. The channels have changed a lot since I last dabbled with YT. There are no friends/contacts anymore. Only subscribers.

    You can add 10 channels as contacts every 15min, but I recommend pushing that to 20min to stay on the safe side if you are using a well established channel. As for mass subscribing TO channels, I believe it is 30 per hour to stay under the radar. I have not done mass subbing myself, but thats what I've read.

    And the idea of friending then unfriending is counter productive, they either accept or decline your contact request.

    Only use I can see is if they close their account its a waste of a contact space

    Thx cevman1. So about 720 per 24 hours then. Anybody else concur with these figures?
