    Hi everyone,
    As this is my first post on BHW (after years of reading), I hope that I'm in the good section.

    I have been working for a little while on a Facebook Bot for my personal use, and now thinking about making a product out of it.
    It's gonna be a long way as my vision of the best graphic user interface for a (100% customizable) bot is going to be hard to realize. But I will try and I will do it, and I can assure you that it's gonna be the best FB bot that you've ever seen.

    But before I start to think about that GUI, I would like to add as much options as possible to the bot, in order to be able to fit any needs.

    What My bot can do now:
    - Login
    - Save Friends
    - Post private messages / on group / on pages
    - Invite friend to like a page / join a group
    - Join (and search) pages / groups
    - Like news feed post / comments
    - Auto accept friend request or refuse (based on criteria)
    - Post messages on group when accepted
    - Post messages on User wall when accepted as friend (or when they accept me)
    - ... (as it's customizable (in a hard coding way), it can do a lot of stuff).

    Now I would like you guys to tell me what the perfect bot should be able to do ? (You can send me in private or public reply, up to you).

    Thanks,
    * Obviously if some of your ideas reveal to be essential or very interesting, you will benefit from sharing this idea when the product will be ready.

    Are you using API or browser?

    Great idea! You can add also:

    Proxy support.
    Unblock profile,

    First of all: Thanks for helping me with these ideas.
    - My bot does support proxy
    - For the Unblocking, I actually save the list of all friends, and when the account can be unlocked by Friend Recognition, I have to copy past the name proposed by FB (under the pic) and my bot show me the "profile picture" and some pictures corresponding to the list of name proposed, which makes it easy to unlock the account (it takes me 2mins to recognize the 5friends).

    Do you know if there is a better solution to do so ? (Maybe saving all the pictures of all the friends, and launch a photo comparing tool, but It's gonna consume a lot of resources (disk space)).

    As I mentioned, my bot is actually hard coded without any Human interface, but I will let everybody know as soon as it's gonna be ready (but you'll have to be patient, it's a big project)

    Email and phone unlock is a nice idea to be included. Also how fast is the bot compare to others is the market? I run a few bots 24/7 on my home PC with 8gm ram, a bot consuming too much is not a option for me... just as idea.
    Scrape users/groups by kewyords ?

    Yeah Email and Phone would be nice, I will think about how to make it possible !
    I don't know all the other bot, but compare to massplanner (which is using an Embedded Browser), my bot is faster as I use the API, I don't have much noise (as HTML, js, ...).
    Plus, they way my bot is coded (w/o GUI for now), it can easily be run on a cheap VPS (I got 100bots 24/7 on a 3$/month VPS) and it doesn't appear to consume anything.

    Hi JerryWoodburn,
    No, I am not using any browser (nor an embedded one), I am using cURL to communicate with the Facebook API and Graph API to performs nearly 99% of the requests.
    But, as not everything is doable through these APIs, I am also using some cURL requests to contact the Facebook regular website (For Example, to find all Friends with deactivated accounts).

    Thank you guys, lot of interesting ideas getting out of your sharing.
    Actually my bot already has almost all the functions needed to performs all these operations, so I'd be able to hard code and do all that things.
    But has the goal is to create a product that would help everyone, it seems that the hardest part of my project is to create the GUI.

    I am thinking about a website (for example), where you can build your on script of actions (by dragging/dropping elements), resulting in something like that:

    upload_2016-10-25_10-21-11.png

    But building that kinda interface going to be a real headache !
    It would be easier to just skip the drag/drop interface, creating only a scriptable zone, with a tutorial and examples of scripts.
    Still gonna be hard to parse/interpret the input script though.

    Any idea about it ? :D

    Whoah,thats the good approach! Thank you for an idea ;)
    Also,about the problem with userFriendly GUI,why not just run it in cmd,where you just send available actions ? (like press 1. for LOGIN ,2. for WHATEVER) Of course with description of what each action does,and with example of format.

    But if you would like to do it like "build your own script" it would be really difficult,it would have to contain a lot of these actions,and i cant imagine it doing only myself.

    Scraping is a must, possibly with advaced Open Graph Search input ("people who like X and work Y" for istance)
