    Okay, it's been a while since I've messed with Facebook, but here's what I bet it is.

    Each Facebook username has their own Username ID which can be harvested by different programs. So, say Facebooks last registered username got the User ID 29098903489008 then the one after him got 29098903489009. So, what this guy did, which is pretty clever, was created a program that ran through the USER IDs sending out friend requests to thousands of people a minute, most likely from thousands of accounts. This would be very successful too, since most users would be more inclined to accept a random friend, given that they don't have any friends yet.

    That's a very good point! However, Facebook user IDs are not consecutive numbers. Even if you know the ID of the last registered user, you can't know the ID of the next one that will register in 0,001 seconds. Also, I don't think that newly registered IDs are necessarily bigger numbers.

    What you can do, however, is harvest the Facebook graph, which is open to everyone (you don't need an account to do that and I'm pretty sure that they don't have IP limitations on the requests, because I myself have sent millions a day and didn't get banned.

    But even then you won't be able to distinguish new accounts from old ones, unless you make repetitive requests to possible future IDs that at some point become existent.

    So my guess would be that whoever's doing this has found a way to get the IDs of new accounts and is certainly not guessing them.
