What are the benefit of having a huge mafia?
As of December 2009, there is no longer any benefits from having a big mafia except for fighting.
Where are the source of your mafia?
Mass email list
You can send a maximum of 1000 emails invitation per day. Friend request has a 30 requests limit. Therefore, a lot of people like to spam invitations using email. This is a easy way out for those lazy mafia that just wants to sit back and relax while their mafia grows.
- Note: Create a dummy email while using mass email list to avoid having spam to your main email.

Groups & Fanpage
These two are where all the people gather together. There are no other places where you can gain friends quickly. You can gain as much as 100 friends requests in just 10 minutes during the peak period.
- Note: Be careful while joining groups or fan page, there are many scam groups out there just to cheat you from clicking their advertisement link to earn income. Other than Zynga, noone can provide free godfather points.

Josh Miller's JAddAll2 Get Bookmarklet
Vern Hart's great AddAll bookmarklet wasn't working any more after numerous changes by Zynga and Vern stopped updating his scripts quite a while ago so I decided to modify the script and get it working again. This bookmarklet script should be run from your 'recruit mafia' page in Mafia Wars. It looks at the list of Facebook friends on the screen and adds them to your mafia one by one without using invites. The bookmarklet is in the box below. You don't click this bookmarklet link here on this page. To use it, you just drag it to your bookmarks toolbar in your browser and then click it when you are on the recruit mafia page in Mafia Wars. If you are using Google Chrome and don't see your bookmarklet toolbar, press Ctrl-B.
