Friend John P. on
I set up a couple of groups on Facebook – our Wealth Nation group (PLEASE JOIN!) and the Stop the Farmville Madness!!! group – and wanted to invite all my friends, but it would have taken an eternity because for some strange reason Facebook doesn’t allow you to “select all” friends when sending an invite. I mean, they’ll let you do it… but only if you click one at a time! Uugh.
- Go to your Facebook Event, Facebook Group or Facebook page and click “Invite People”.
- Once the page has loaded you should see all of your friends, but they are not selected.
- If all goes well, it selects all of your friends!
- IMPORTANT: NOW YOU MUST WAIT!!! If you have a lot of Facebook friends, you have to leave that window open for a long time so it sends all of the invitations! I have about 1,400 and it took like 15-20 minutes to send all of the invitations. The Invite window will close when its done. So exercise patience!!!!!!!!!!
If that first method doesn’t work for you give this a try:
Right click the “friend box” and open it in a new tab:
Then paste this
Finally, there is now a GreaseMonkey script for Firefox to Invite All Facebook Friends if you want to try that as well..
Oh, and by the way, if you found this helpful please tweet it or share it on Facebook to help others find it too. The more people who share it, the more people it helps! It takes some time for all of the Facebook invites to be sent. They go into a queue. So if you saw them all get selected, just be patient. The messages WILL get delivered over the next 24 hours or so.
If none of that is working for you, Michael Quale developed a little Chrome plugin which I personally tested and it did the trick. You can get it on the Chrome browser store here. And here is a little video of it working.
Again, that one is only for Chrome users, but I highly recommend that everyone use Chrome anyway…
