I am currently working on a project that requires some facebook accounts to post automated stuff. Adding friends, joing groups, tagging, those stuff. I tried manually doing it on my phone, and I managed to grow 5 accounts with 3k friends each. It was kinda painful and boring. Let me give some backgrounds on what I have done. It's kinda long because I love to write so bear with me. First I have tried to use an image of some chick that I found online. And it's driving me nuts, because a lot of people are adding her (Indians/Bangladesh/Americans) and they kinda horny. It bugs me. Some are even calling while I am busy doing my stuff. And also using other profile pics, makes my ethical standard go haywire. Its kinda hard to my conscience. So I switched in using my wife profile pic. It's crazy again. I really can't stand these horny guys. So In the end, I end up using my own pic. And this generate a little problem. Since my persona is a guy, then it's imperative that I will be adding girls. This slows me down because I only add beautiful girls and selecting some is taking some time. Every now and then I got some messages from some chicks, and this is giving my urge to 'you know what I mean'. To avoid this problem, I decided to automate so I don't have to interact with anybody and avoid unnecessary 'cheating' problem. Checking on Massplanner, i really cannot stand the price. I have some funds but I don't think it's worth it, while I can make a duplicate of it. It might not be an exact duplicate but it would be a viable workaround. And also, since I am developing it myself, I can put some safety measures to avoid getting banned. Why I am sharing this? I like to document things what I were doing and also to encourage me further to do this until completion. And also I would like to get insights on how not to get banned. At the end of this journey, I will share the executable. Here are the things I would like to accomplish > Auto login > Auto logout > Accept Incoming friend Request > Add Friend, 200 request per day until 3k friends each. > Switch User > Join Group 20 each day. I think max group you can join is around 1600 > Post to Group (10 every 15 minutes) > Post to own wall > Post to friends wall > Tag a friend > Random Action (Like and share of friends post, message a friend, checking others news fee), these stuffs will not get you banned. More random action, more chance not to get banned. > Run this through VM > It should handle 10 account per VM > It runs on a browser not using API to avoid getting banned. What I have accomplish so far > Auto Login > Auto Logout > Accept Incoming Friend Request > Add Friend (still doing the code, but I was able to navigate already and find target friends) Man Hours: 2 hours per day. maximum 1 month development. Target: > FB incoming traffic to my site reaches 100k per day. Estimated time of completion: 1 year. Even this fails, in the end I still have a working bot. And I believe it can be adopted to any platform. Update: Every week. I got day job so it's kinda hard. I will post video tommorow.
