    I want to create a facebook bot that can make accounts and then use those accounts to post photos and I would like it to be all automated. Something like Jarvee or Facedominator (but less complicated), but I am not sure about what programming language to learn. I made this thread to take suggestions from anyone who can help me make a decision. I thank you in advance for your comments.

    If I am not mistaken, both Jarvee and Facedominator are coded in .NET. So, you could use VB or C#, they're both the same. Although I personally recommend C# due to its syntax.

    I find creating bots quite complicated. Instead I just copy human actions using headless browser like phantomjs. Then run it day in day out with proxies etc. So a basic understanding of html and JS is more than enough.

    Python is pretty good and for me it suits well.

    I wouldn´t suggest Java though.

    C# is suggestable, but not as good as Python is, in my opinion.

    For speed of development, go with python. There are also a plethora of free python bots on the net so it would be easy to hit the ground running. You could just modify some the those and have a bot in no time.

    No, I was talking about the thread and in case of bots I´m preferring to use Python.

    Yes, I know C is a kind of frame (if I can express it like that).

    Python if you're a newbie, otherwise Perl, C and Java (for me at least).

    I'm using puppeteer (nodejs - so javascript) for most projects these days (pof, facebook, instagram. pinterest)

    for serious highend projects I use c++ (ticket master and fashion bots)

    Phantom has not been maintained for over a year. you may want to look at puppeteer.

    basically doesnt matter, pretty much any language can do it. I run my own private bots and theyre in java, so far ive never had any limitations with it.

    If you want simple then check out Alexia Basic - a programming language specifically designed for automating web tasks. Very easy to learn and extremely useful.

    C# / Python for the win.

    However I use iMacros too for simple tasks I'm only going to need done once or twice.
