    A little background: I've created a set of FB profiles, and begun friending through a bot (FBB). 2 of 10 accounts were deleted, so I slowed the rate of friending. Even still, I have received warnings from FB that there was a high reject count and further abuse would lead to a ban. My goal in all this is to invite eventual friends to Fan my Page. So let me ask you, of the following what is your approach to FB friending:

    A. Slow & Steady: friend a lower amount per day (by bot- on gathered ids, or do you use another method such as friending those who are recommended to you - friends of friends - to lower the reject count? or some other method to reduce reject percentage?)

    B. Pump & Dump : create a FB account. Add hundreds and invite as many to a page. Don't worrry about being banned, you can always create another account.

    C. Friending through emails/upload contact file: since it avoids some of FB's friending limits/suspicion

    D. Get others to Friend you: By posting to Mafia Wars groups, etc.

    I realize many of you do some combination- would like to hear what exactly your mix is and what you found works most effectively. FB does seem like its cracking down a little harder on mass friending.

    Slow and steady works the best for me. Once the account has been 'stabilized' then I start getting friends to friend me.

    Thanks milestone and rudeprincess .

    A question: in going the slow & steady route, do you come across FB warnings on adding too fast or high reject rate? What do you to prevent banning? Do you keep the friending under a certain level? Do you only friend certain people to avoid a high reject rate? Use proxy IP's?

    Just curious what measure you take to keep your FB accounts unbanned. Thanks again.

    i dont use PVA's for fast adding with emails, i just scrape the emails from groups, put them in, and hit send.. if it gets to be a big group, ill pay to get it PVA'd. that way, I loose nothing if it gets banned.

    Just dont add too many in 1 day, less than 50 usually, and you should be fine.. sending email ones dont usually get you banned, if you add mafia wars players, just write MW in the message thing and erveryone will accept.

    it seems to me that there is no one way to do with facebook
    i found that under 50 friends a day per account and a break of 15 sec. between is good
    but that is two little since it can take months you can monetize till it goes "viral" meaning reaches critical mass so what to do....panding on your nish it is better to try to comply with thire rules so you can keep some of your account open if not all i whould target groups and fan pages or friends of friend but the thing is they should have the same interest so you bring down the rejection rate also you will stay on your same subject when you montize at the same time to split your activity betwin many accounts is allways better.......and yes the invite from file to the email address is always better then the other invites.......

    I am working manually with the a/c and yes working with multiple a/c. I play some FB games so that FB recognize the a/c as real.
    Finally slow and steady wins the race...lol

    I create 100 accounts, with girl pictures, real info and shit like that.

    I then add people whom I think would accept a pretty hot girl, like old men. Also adding a msg helps the chance, for example "Saw you in friend suggest, you looked hot" it bound to get 100% success rate.

    The key is mention the "friend suggestion" - then when you have HIM as a friend, you can add all HIS friends. Why will they accept? Simply put because they see they have a mutual friend. :)

    Try that and see how it goes
