How To Select All Friends in Facebook [v2]

Looking for a fun game to Invite all your Friends on Facebook to? Check out Sitizens! See if you can become King of Facebook.com!

When you are trying to invite your friends to your page, it can be tedious. So here’s a quick javascript to select all your friends in Facebook so you can invite them all in one quick motion.

Simply copy and paste that into the address bar when you have the friend selector window open. I have a video to show you exactly what I mean here:

So now you know how to select all friends on Facebook for an event, the easy way. You can use it to invite friends to your facebook groups, pages, anywhere the friend picker window shows up!

As of 3-29-2011 this method works. If you can’t get it to work on your end, try again. I use this method myself so if it stops working I’ll update the code.

Can’t get it to work? Try right clicking in different places in the select friends window. I found right clicking on a photo worked for me. Also note that it can take a long time for your browser to select them all, and after submitting it appears to do nothing when it actually is.

4-13-2011 This method is not currently working. However a Firefox Plugin does this very well. I will post an update when I’ve got a new code figured out ;-)

    Here I am late again can’t fit everything into one day so I have ended up on a two day schedule.

    Thanks again Tim what did I without your tips.

    End up doing most things weekly that’s what I may yet get down to a daily schedule if friends stop having launches one after another.

    Can you explain more what you use this for? I don’t understand why you are already referring yourself to all your friends.

    I can’t get this to work. No matter which browser, I use, I do not have the option of opening the element in a new tab; This Frame does not exist in my dropdown.

    When I right click on the frame there is no option that allows me to open it in another tab or window. I tried using both firefox and safari as my browser.
