Actions From Last Week

  • Say hello to my 2000 friends [jlorenzo]

2000 tests accounts have been created. One facebook test account has been populated with 500+ friends. Encountering some issues to go further than 535 programmatically. Adding friends manually by the dashboard is doable though.

See for credential details.
