I have a Facebook business page. Recently, I attempted to take advantage of the "build audience" tool. It allows you to upload a .cvs, .txt, or .xml file of email addresses to send an invitation to "like" a Facebook page. I uploaded approximately 5,000 emails. The whole process went smoothly, no errors, I was able to preview the message and hit send without incident. As a control, myself and several other co-workers were included in the list to make sure the invitations went out; not one of us received an invitation. Further, we received no "likes" from the invitation, which leaves me to believe no one received it.
Any ideas on what may have gone wrong?
Should I try again?
I don't want to bombard people with invitations.
