>Facebook Games And Automation Tools (Cheats!) a MUST Read


>Subscribe to The BULLDOG Estate by Email

Today we would like to bring to light about some Automation tools out there that are being used to “Help” Facebook gamers with various tasks.
Hey, who doesn’t want a bit of help now and then aye?
Reports show that some of the more popular tools have been removed from Facebook, and for good reason!
I really don’t want to hear about how you’ve been banned, or your favorite bot has been removed.
We hear it quite a bit, and the excuses are ALWAYS the same. So spare the pitty party for your cheating friends.
These tools include, but are not limited to…
  • Automated Friend Adding
  • Automated Gift Recieving/Sending
  • Automated Clicks Through Game Mechanics (Missions/Fights/Looting/Farming etc…)
  • Glitching (acquiring desired results by methods not attainable through normal means of gameplay)
These are otherwise known as “Bots“, and bots ARE CHEATS!
These Apps may seem harmless enough, but they give a user an edge above others that do NOT use them. This places an imbalance of gameplay in the favor of the bot user.
The game companys, and even Facebook itself have noted in their TOS & FAQ that these are against the TOS (Terms Of Service).
Colton had this to say…
” You’re using these because you’re disabled? Boo frickin who. It’s called laziness, not disability. Think that’s wrong of me to say ? Read the full article and then see if you feel you can verbally spar with me in comments. “
Zynga’s TOS reads as follows…
I Chose to Highlight these sections, because they are the most common among users who don’t actually program these cheats… Just use them.
Section 1.9. License Limitations
CHEATING AND HACKING – You agree that you will not, under any circumstances:
d. Use cheats, exploits, automation software, bots, hacks, mods or any unauthorized third-party software designed to modify or interfere with the Service, any Zynga Game or any Zynga game experience;
e. Use the Service in order to design or assist in the design of cheats, automation software, bots, hacks, mods or any other unauthorized third-party software designed to modify or interfere with the Service, any Zynga game or any Zynga game experience;
And also…
I chose to highlight this one, because when using these “Automation Tools (Cheats)”, you are in fact causing additional stress on the servers by sending multiple requests at an abnormally high rate.
UNAUTHORIZED USE OR CONNECTION TO THE SERVICE – You agree that you will not, under any circumstances:
t. Make any automated use of the system, or take any action that imposes or may impose (in our sole discretion) an unreasonable or disproportionately large load on our infrastructure;
I used Zynga’s TOS only as an example here, because it is the most widely use game system on Facebooks network.
You will note however that in almost ANY game you play online. Other companies usually follows these same guidelines, and this does NOT limit the rules to only Zynga based apps!
Facebook is also against any use of these “tools“.
Facebooks TOS reads as follows though the FAQ…
I was warned for using automation while using an application not built by Facebook.
Using automation to collect content or other information from Facebook members is not permitted. If you are using special bookmarks or programs to perform actions in applications not built by Facebook, then you may unknowingly be using automation. Further use of these tools can result in your account being permanently disabled.
I was warned for engaging in behavior that may be considered annoying or abusive.
Facebook has security systems to stop abusive actions.
The systems automatically identify the following types of behavior:
Feature overuse: There are limits to restrict the rate at which you can use features on the site. Overusing features is not allowed because it may make other people feel annoyed or unsafe.
Unwanted contact: Our systems detect when friend requests you send to others are being ignored at a high rate and volume. Using Facebook to contact many people you don’t know is not allowed because it may make them feel threatened, harassed, or unsafe.
Once you close your warning, you must significantly slow down this behavior. Further misuse of site features may result in a temporary block, or your account being permanently disabled from Facebook.
What types of behavior does Facebook’s automated security system identify as abusive?
The systems automatically identify the following types of behavior:
Feature overuse: There are limits to restrict the rate at which you can use features on the site. Overusing features is not allowed because it may make other people feel annoyed or unsafe.
Unwanted contact: Our systems detect when friend requests you send to others are being ignored at a high rate and volume. Using Facebook to contact many people you don’t know is not allowed because it may make them feel threatened, harassed, or unsafe.
These rules are set in place for a reason… Fair Play!
Not only does this type of cheating effect the game play, but you are indeed placing yourself, and your friends at risk.
How?
Well you are essentially opening the flood gates for these “Cheat Developers” to be able to take whatever information they want…
Lists of Email Contacts, Phone #’s, and possibly Passwords as well if you need to “Log In” through their tools to make them work.
This exposes yourself and everyone around you to let them spam through you, or even steal information.
These are NOT legitimate companies that you really want to do business, or share personal information with.
If these people are willing to make Cheats; what else are they willing to do? Do they do it out of the kindness of their own heart?
9 times out of 10, this is an unlikely case. They want to make money too. Be it through Ad revenue or even worse!
There are Scams running rampant that hook people into thinking that a Glitch in the Game is going to give them Free Credits, hack someones profile, or other things.
The most predominate ones right now are the Copy and Paste Javascript Code to your Browser URL.
This is something you NEVER want to do!
It executes script from outside of Facebook to preform functions within Facebook.
These scripts very to some degree, but the end result is usually the same.
Within about 30 seconds it’ll run wild through your account creating events, inviting all your friends, make posts to yours and your friends walls tagging them in the process, send messages to anyone who is online through chat. all linking back to to the scammers website. In the end you’re then directed to either a Survey Scam, Enter a Cell # Scam, or forced to download & install a virus.
In the end, you’re left with nothing or a fraudulent $10.00/month texting charge to your cellular bill… Or worse!
The whole point to this is this.
If you’re willing to cheat, you better accept the fact that you get what you deserve!
If you’ve been banned from a game… Goodbye! Nobody wants to play with you anyway.
If you know a cheater… Warn them, and remove them from your friends list if they do not head that warning.
Because you don’t want to receive penalties from their misconduct!
Colton also quotes…
“I’m quite disabled and somehow manage without cheats. Play properly, or not at all. And if you meant “mentally” then I will tell you the same thing I tell my daughter with special needs. “I don’t want to hear: ‘It’s Hard!’ or ‘I Can’t !’ or excuses. You do things the proper way or not at all. If you want it bad enough, you will find a way. Is it harder for her to play a game or do anything for herself ? Of course, but how will you ever accomplish anything in life and truly feel like a real person if everything is handed to you. “
In the greater scheme of things…
Yes, it’s just a game, but everyone should play by the same rules. You are NOT above reproach to anyone else, so don’t be so naive as to think otherwise!
Legitimate channels ARE out there for you to take advantage of for the simple tasks.
If you need more friends for a game… Join a Add Me Group for the games you play. There are plenty out there!
If you want to collect bonuses that are posted to your friends walls through the news feed. Use the filter system available to you provided through Facebook itself.
You can click on the Game Requests on the left hand side, scroll down and filter by specific game to show news feeds by selection of the game intended. Right click on the item, and open in a new tab, and work on down the list this way.
Cheers,
o0MeTaL0o, & Colton
