Hi All,

I got about 100 Friend Requests, should I accept them or not at a time or should I accept as part like accepting daily of about 5 or 10 requests per day.

is that make sense to avoid blocked temporarily?

and I previously blocked temporarily while I am posting a link in Facebook Group (actually I am the admin of the group)

At the time of blocked I made a perfect authentication and added security authentications.

Please help I accept those about 100 requests I need to send them a message stating that "this page belongs to us like this page".

If message them I mean 100 messages to 100 users that makes again my profile temporarily blocked?

waiting for replies..........

!00 friend requests in a day is a lot to sort through. Do you add every request to your Friends? Do you ever check to see who these people are before you add them? I would be very concerned abut my privacy settings if I were to receive so many requests. Of course, if you already have a large number of Friends added, you may be getting their friends requesting you to add them also.

You can send messages to anyone you want to on FaceBook. There is no guarantee they will all see your message. I don't know a reason FaceBook would block you for responding to Friend Requests. If they can send you 100 requests a day, why would they not allow you to send each one a message. If you are sending out lots of "advertising" messages to people who sent you a Friend Request, they may very well file complaints and you may have a problem.

Read the guidelines FaceBook gives you and use that to decide what you want to do.

Do you expect to have 100 new friends each day? I get about 1/3rd that daily and glance through/ignore them... why? My FB is a personal page and I doubt that many folks are really "friends". (also look at who their friends are, too). Nine times out of 10 these are "friend linkers" hoping to up their numbers and as such I have other things to do.

However, if you are in FB to market/ecommerce, then everyone is your friend. You do NOT have to send a message to each, all you have to do is CONFIRM.

Thanks for the Reply, well you know my profile runs not on Real Name and its my website name just started with that a few months ago and again has the Facebook page on that same name.

Previously my Facebook page was blocked and created another page on the name of my website and so what happened here is the people on Facebook sending friend requests to the profile name (which is on my website name)

so then onwards am accepting friends requests and sending them that like our page @ (so here diverting them to my page)

so recently my profile got blocked and it's now unblocked got many friends requests if I accept them and send them a message will I get blocked?

Friend Requests can only come to your own profile, because Facebook Pages can't have "Friends", only "Followers". You can easily talk up your FaceBook Page in your Profile and if anyone wants to go there they can go. If you send a duplicate message automatically to everyone who Friends you, you might have a problem, especially if the same message is being sent to everyone and telling them to go and Like or Follow your FB Page.

You need to keep up with the changes FaceBook is making. They used to show people who liked a FB Page all the updates for that FB Page, if they had liked or followed the page. Now they don't show your FB Page updates to very many people unless you pay to promote and they don't like you to tell people to "Like" or "Follow" your page. If you pay to promote your FB Page, you are not limited to people who liked the page. That is why I suggested that you go and read their guidelines, to see the right way to do things and the wrong way. Your content needs to be the motivator or you will be seen less and need to pay more to be seen.

Will you be blocked? If enough people complain, yes.

In short: they do not like you making money off of your "friends", unless they, too, are making money off of your "friends". :) But as a clarifying point, do you have a page linked to your personal acct. for your business or is your profile your business name?
