Creating a beliveable account

Social engineering is the art of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. While similar to a confidence trick or simple fraud, the term typically applies to trickery for information gathering or computer system access and in most cases the attacker never comes face-to-face with the victim.

For the sake of knowledge <sp> If one were to create an account for facebook too be used for gathering information, how would one make such an account? How would you make this page beliveable?

I don't know all of it, but I do know that there are tons of people who friend any who friend request them. Just do a random search for people and friend everyone. Maybe even get a bot to do it for you?

Well it depends on the target. Are you seeking information on an anon target, or is this an ex gf, or perhaps a friend of a friend? Either way, this can go one of few ways. Big blanket methods being you put in a lot of time and effort to build up like friends and interests. Or simply attempt Wallshadow's method and do a blank friend request; which works a lot! Now if you want to go high risk/high reward then you could create a fake account of an already befriended individual.

But we'll have to be vague in helping you not knowing a lot of specifics. You could throw examples at us on how we might go about getting the job done.

Few targets actualy, a friends ex-roomate, well the ex-roommates boyfreind would be the main target, and a freiend of theirs. They have been causing alot of problems lately that have resulted in the friends boyfriend going to jail twice now.

I know a thing or two about creating identities. The first thing you need to do is research.. and build a person, which means having a bunch of additional assets tied this person. An e-mail account, a blogspot, perhaps a twitter handle, add that all to the FB account, and be consistent with your language and opinions. Give your identity some background, find names and places that have enough additional matches so that if your identity is doxed, it has so many hits that it would be hard to determine an end user. Also, don't get trapped.. use proxies when chatting, making posts, etc, so that location information matches your profile. If your identity is from Germany, connect through a german proxy and enable location tagging on your wall posts. That's just a few pointers to get you started.
