Welcome to SocialBFF Support
Answers to Frequently Asked Questions from fellow Social BFF.
Why isn't Social BFF showing the Professional Edition features after I upgraded?

Once you have purchased Social BFF Pro from the Google Webstore you need to make sure that:
• Social BFF is installed (by clicking 'add to Chrome' on download.social-bff.com)
• You are logged into Chrome with the Google account you used to purchase the item . Click here for details how to login to Chrome.
If you are logged in with the correct account, try and click the 'reload' button at the bottom of the Social BFF options panel. If the upgrade was successful you will see a red Social BFF icon () in the Chrome toolbar.
Why are profiles not being captured?

Please check if you are running out of disk space on your computer. Social BFF stores the profiles locally, and for this the browser needs to allocate space on your harddisk.
Social BFF start snoozing after a few visits, why? And what can I do about that?

By default the Professional Edition of Social BFF will 'snooze' when it hits one of the follow 3 maximums:
• the maximum daily visits for the current LinkedIn account type
• the maximum daily auto-invites
• the maximum daily direct message
You can override this these maximums in the Social BFF options panel, section 'Daily Limits'.
When I click on the purchase button in the Webstore my browsers just sits there, and I'm unable to purchase the upgrade. Why is this?

If your purchase is not going when upgrading via the Chrome Webstore, please get touch with the Google Payments support team. You can contact them using the 'Contact Us' link on the following page.
How can I tell whether my automated visits are resulting in connection requests?

You can check the connection requests in LinkedIn via Manage Invitations. To see the messages that were sent with the requests you will need to open invitation section in the mobile app as the desktop UI doesn't show this.
My Social BFF keeps hanging / freezing / stopping when auto-visiting profiles. Can you fix that?

It sounds like the page loads are stalling, which means Social BFF is waiting to recognise the page you are on. This is commonly caused by ads on LinkedIn and we recommend using an ad-blocker to stop this from happening. We use uBlock Origin, click here to download it from the Chrome Webstore.
The drop-down menu is unreliable, it's not giving me the option to auto-visit or download my data. Can you fix that?

It sounds like the page loads are stalling, which means Social BFF is waiting to recognise the page you are on. As the drop-down menu is context-sensitive, Social BFF will show the default options in the menu until the pageload completes. This is caused by unreliable ads on LinkedIn and we recommend using an ad-blocker to stop this from happening. We use uBlock Origin, click here to download it from the Chrome Webstore.
The 'buy' button is disabled when I access the Chrome Web Store, how do I buy Social BFF?

Please try the following link, it forces the US pricing.
Do you have any videos demonstrating the key-features of Social BFF?

Yes we do. Check our YouTube channel for demonstration and turial videos.
LinkedIn is not allowing me to do any more searches since I have reached my 'Commercial Search Limit'. Can I still use Social BFF?

Definitely! The search-limit does not influence the ability of Social BFF to visit profiles.
• via ‘group members’
• via ‘connections of connection’
• your ‘direct connections’
• Google Xray
• by re-visiting profiles from a previous Social BFF download.
In this way Social BFF helps you get the most out of your free LinkedIn account. The commercial use search limit will reset on the 1st of each month, check here for more details.

What is the difference between captured and visited profiles in the Social BFF menu?

The number of captured profiles is the current number in cache. These can be scanned and visited profiles. The number of visited profiles is the number of visits in the last day, based on UTC.
Can I use Social BFF Professional for more than one LinkedIn account?

If you’re looking to use multiple LinkedIn accounts we recommend you login to a different Google Account for each LinkedIn user. You can easily login to different accounts in Chrome, check here to see how. This would require a Social BFF license for each Google user.
