Sending friend requests to people you don't know

by 12 comments
Hi, Warriors,

I did as one of the WSO told me, sending friend request to people who don't know me and there is a warning told me this, Sending friend requests to people you don't know can cause my account blocked, only send to friends, colleagues, or people you know. How can I address this problem? I suppose the most serious punishment would be you can't send friend requests to people anymore, or facebook account got blocked, I don't want the last one.

    What's the point of sending friend requests to random people? They won't add you anyways. And if you're doing it for the purposes of promoting a product, most users will see it as spam and may block/report you.

      No, I think in most cases, they will add you, imagine yourself on the facebook receiving one friend request, wouldn't you be pleased? In face, the requests I sent out 2 in 10 people would add me. I would not directly promote any product to them, I can get them on my list and do the rest in coming days.

    I would not be pleased receiving a friend request from someone I don't know. In fact, I've got about six sitting in my request box right now.

    Facebook is really personal. What you're doing seems a little intrusive, but to each his own.

      While I agree with what you are saying, I must refer you to Stupid Forum Tricks and ask you to read #7.

      You and I are not the market.

      Anyways, to the OP: you have that warning because you have sent too many friend requests to accounts that are in no way linked to yours (mutual friends, same area/school/work, etc.). That stigma stays for awhile, so proceed with caution.

      I think there are better ways than Facebook to pick up targeted leads; but that's not what this is about.

      I don't deny there are people who are not pleased with these requests, but there are always some.

    If you want to continue what you are doing then do it slowly. Facebook knows how a real spammer move. They are usually in a hurry with adding friends and are constantly posting promotions and links.

    Try to work on your account with days/week intervals.

    Good luck!
