'Select All' for Facebook

What does this script do?

Whenever you want to suggest a page to your friends, you have to click them one by one. This script will add a "Click Them" button at the end of the dialog box. You can also select the range of friends to select but that's optional.

Known Issues

  • Requires a page refresh if the script is already used once.

Installation

Requires GreaseMonkey Firefox Addon
Install It from here

  1. Unethical script, considering that the nice thing to do on being shown that page is to click on Cancel.

    It would have been more more philanthropic had you made a script that bypasses that page :P

  2. I'm amazed this hasn't had more attention given the number of people moaning about the absence of a "Select All" button.

    But when I clicked "Send Invitations" there was no confirmation message. Is this normal?

  3. I dont think so.
    Actually, the confirmation message appears and then i parse it to show the Option.

    If you could send me the error Log (Tools->Error Console)
    it would be great, may be there is some error.

  5. Do you want the bad news or the bad news?

    It doesn't work. Nothing is sent and no confirmation message appears. When clicking "Select All" or "Send Invitations" no new errors appear.

    FYI I am using Firefox on a Mac and trying to send invitations from my Facebook Page.

  9. Same thing happening here, selects all friends but facebook doesn't actually send the invite, maybe you can modify it so it selects only 100 friends per time and it'll work hopefully!!!

  10. I have changed the script.
    * Now it does send the invitations.
    * Also you can choose a range of friends to select from.

  14. it looks like it stucks, but more likely, you just have to wait. anyway, it works nice and seems faster, if selecting 500 friends at a time.

  15. Dont know if Its just me doing something wrong/forgetting to do something, altho I dont really think that this is the case but It does not want to select anyone at all, no matter how many or few I choose to select

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah I have the same problem too. I try to use the script and insert it directly in the browser but it doesn't work either.

  17. I have done some bug fixes. It should work now...

  18. hi, actuallu it can't be downloaded now, the info is: 500 Internal Server Error


    is it the problem of whole site? thanks for the info:)

  19. That's an issue with Userscript servers I guess. I hope they will handle it soon!

  20. I try to use in on firefox and it doesnt work. The full select friend box doesnt even appear, its cut short at the beginning of "Add A Personal Message", so I cant even get down to the bottom where it says, send invitation

  21. I am completely ignorant of these scripts. I've never used anything like this. I've read a bunch of the various links for this, but still don't see what I need to do. I'm sure I'll hear a collective groan when I post this, but can you please explain how this works?

    I've installed GreaseMonkey and restarted Firefox. I opened Facebook and tried to suggest a page to friends and the window was just the same as usual. There was no select all button.

    Can you please tell me in laymen's terms what I need to do to make this work?

    Thank you! :-)

    Blissfully Ignorant

  23. Hi !
    Thanks for this great script, I use it since your first release...

    But now your script needs an update, because facebook just changed their "select friends" interface.

    I'm counting on you dude !
