Farming a Facebook Account: A Step-by-Step Guide

A farmed account is the key to a successful campaign and ensures the longevity of your advertising account. In the eyes of Facebook's algorithms, such a profile is indistinguishable from that of a regular user.

The algorithms are already aware that accounts with unusual and excessively active behavior are potential violators. For example, if a person has just registered and immediately started running ads, it is a guaranteed ban. Experienced arbitrageurs recommend warming up the profile for at least 1 month before launching any campaigns.

Preparation for Farming

To farm an account, you will need:

  • Quality proxies. For Facebook, mobile or residential proxies are suitable. The location should match the offer's geo.
  • A virtual machine. This is necessary to create unique hard drive components, graphics cards, and run different operating systems as applications.
  • An anti-detection browser. This allows you to work with multiple accounts and hide digital fingerprints. Undetectable Browser is perfect for these purposes.
  • A photo for the account. You can generate one using the neural network "This person does not exist" or a similar tool.

How to Farm a Facebook Account

Let's go through the step-by-step algorithm:

1. Register or buy an account. If you create the account yourself, you will need to reset the smartphone settings and use different SIM cards. You can also create an account on a PC using an anti-detection browser. Prior to this, you will need to obtain cookies by visiting websites with Facebook Pixel installed.

2. Fill in the profile information, upload a photo, and add 2-5 friends. You can also subscribe to 2-3 groups for acquaintances and make a post stating that you want to meet new people. For Facebook, it is preferable for the person to accept more friend requests than they send.

3. Log out of the account for a day. Facebook considers it unnatural behavior if a user immediately starts joining many groups and inviting many friends after registration. After a day, you can log in again and join 5 more groups.

4. Behave like a regular user for the next week. You can scroll through the feed, join groups, like photos and posts, watch videos, comment, invite friends, play games, and register on other websites and services through Facebook.

If you need to farm another account during this period, you will need to reset the settings on the device again, clear the cache of Facebook and other apps that interacted with Facebook.

All farming actions should be logical and well thought out. For example, it is better to subscribe to groups with a similar theme that matches the interests specified in the profiles. Before adding someone as a friend, it is advisable to spend some time on their profile and like their posts. It is important to observe limits: no more than 25 likes per day, no more than 5 reposts.

5. Create a Fan Page. This can be done on the 7th day. On each account, Fan Pages should be created using different methods to prevent the algorithms from detecting that the same person is behind them.

6. Create a Business Manager in the second week of farming.

7. Continue social activity. You can click on Facebook ads in the feed and make posts on the Fan Page.

8. Link a card. It is preferable to do this on the 10th-14th day or later. The card can be virtual but should have a trusted BIN and not be on Facebook's blacklist.

9. Start advertising for reach, likes, or video views. Set a duration of 2 days with a budget of $1-2 per day. This will prepare the account for scaling.

10. Publish a creative on the Fan Page that will be used in the campaign. The post with the creative should also be promoted for some time to see if it passes moderation. If everything goes well, the creative can be uploaded to Ads Manager and the campaign can be launched.


Farming an account saves time and money for arbitrageurs and allows for efficient campaign launches. However, it is not a magic solution that will permanently protect you from bans. Algorithms are constantly being updated, and Facebook may flag certain actions as suspicious. If you repeat the same actions, even when using an anti-detection browser, Facebook will eventually block the entire chain of accounts.
