Do not over join facebook groups.. i went crazy and added 30 groups within 20 minute time frame and they suspended my account. So now, they require some verification over the phone to access my account. So, if u dont trust facebook with your # then don't over jion =)

      You Need to build your groups slowly, especially if it is a new account. FB see's new accounts joining many groups as suspicious.

      I would suggest join 10 a day initially for 2 or 3 days then increase that to 20 a day. Make sure you are also putting some content on your timeline over these days as well.

      Also when you start posting to the groups you need to build this slowly as well to fly under the FB banning radar.

      Good Luck

    Well..... Joining a Facebook group every 40 seconds is definitely not normal human behavior

      Good way to break it down! And, when you look at this situation from Facebook's point of view (considering how they are likely using automated spam detection methods), it should easily take more than a minute for a person to find a new group; visit their page and decide if it's the right group to join.

      The problem is when you join a new group (or ask to join), Facebook suggests related groups so it's just as easy to keep clicking that join button and over do it in a short time.

    I must have gotten lucky, or other circumstances. I went on a join blitz and I think to my benefit, they were not all approved right away. The majority of the acceptances came over the period of a week. So while I had asked to join about 75 groups, the actual joining was spread out... so not really my doing, just happened that way due to page admin.

    Some people in other groups have started adding me in some open groups and I'm getting annoyed with this. How to stop this auto-adding without my permission? Is there any setting or I have to quit the group by unjoin manually?

    10 a day should be plenty. If you're trying to contact FB Group admins, you don't want to send out a bunch of messages anyway, as that will look spammy too.

    On the whole, you get what you pay for.

    AMEN. I've been in FB jail for quite a few times in my IM career. You think I'd've learned my lessons... but some days you get a new idea of groups you want to join or old friends you want to add and BAM. Banned. It sucked! And I'm not even a FB junkie like so many people I know. I still felt so outside the loop.

    I suggest you to do it slowly because there's no purpose of joining too many groups soon after creation of new Facebook profile. It shows you are planning for spammy kind of stuff. So be careful with your moves on facebook.

    Why even join so many groups?
    If it's for the purpose of promoting a website, search and only join those that are active. It's a tip I picked up recently

    Hello,

    Thanks for the information but, joining 30 groups in 20 minutes is too fast. Not only in FB but other sites of social media will do the same.

    Haha, thanks for the notice . Yeah, you have to easy with these stuff. Too bad they didn't gave you a warning or something. When you send messages with link in them, there is a restriction, about 50 in 24h or something like that. And they warn you, to go easy on it.

    Thanks again, for the heads up.

    First, we need to think that we shouldn't over join groups especially if it is not necessary. There are a lot of precautionary measures to be safe online, that's one, and another is to not give any very personal detail of us especially numbers.

    We are the key to our own safety. Always Check the RULES first before any action.

    Twitter is more strict for automated spam attacks. You can recover Facebook account after verification but Twitter don't allow if any suspect.
