    Have you guys had pages deleted by tagging random people in your pictures on a fan page? I see a great increase in activity on my page when I tag friends on my other accounts.

    ive done something like that, first i was going to tag pictures, but then i found you can also just mention them, u know like u type @live1 ... my app mentionned 10 friends next to a picture like 'Hey, name1 name 2 name 3... name 10, i just found out when i'm going to ..., what about you? try it here -> link."

    Result: roadblock on account after 4-5h ...

    Dont know how it is with tagging , but dont use mention like that :D

    FB will block your account and disable your app if spam :)

    Yeah, I lost my fanpage in this manner few days back. I used to tag around 50 users who have around 5000 friends. The page got 8000 likes in 20 days and then it got banned by Facebook :(. Please don't use this method extensively or else Facebook will throw the axe.

    So, if I made many admins to my page and made one account to tag, technically i'd be ok because they'd only ban the account that was tagging people and not the page? Clarification would be really helpfull! Thanks!

    I might work once or maybe twice, but FaceBook would catch on and they'd eventually shut down the page. However you would avoid screwing up your personal account yes.
