Mass Invite Friends to a Facebook Page or Event

types-of-facebook-friendsHow many times have you’ve asked yourself why does sending Facebook page and event invitations have to be so freak’n difficult? Don’t you wish you could easily and quickly send invites to all your Facebook friends without having to select each one individually? It is time consuming and repetitively insane to invite all your friends to a page or event on Facebook. Unfortunately, Facebook forces you to select each and every person to send them an invite. But what do you do if you have 1000+ friends and you want to send all of them an invite? Will you have to spend an entire day, a week or even a month selecting them?

NO!

Lucky for you, below I have a working solution which is very simple to implement. Guaranteeing you lots of Likes and people learning about your awesome event!

I’ve managed to do this fairly easy in the Mozilla Firefox browser, but am not sure if there are similar plugins and processes with other browsers. Please offer your suggestions and ideas in the comments below.

Steps on How To Mass Invite Friends on Facebook

  1. First you’ll need Firefox and the Web Developer app.
  2. Open up your Facebook page in Firefox.
  3. Click ‘Build Audience‘ near the middle top side of your page and click ‘Invite Friends‘.

  4. A pop-up window will now appear. Click ‘Search All Friends‘.

  5. Use the scroll bar on the right to scroll down until your entire friends list is loaded.
  6. Now go to your Firefox browser menu and click ‘Tools -> Web Developer -> Scratchpad’.

  7. Copy and paste the Javascript code below into the Scratchpad app.
    javascript:elms=document.getElementsByName("checkableitems[]");for (i=0;i<elms.length;i++){if (elms[i].type="checkbox" )elms[i].click()};

  8. Click ‘Execute -> Run’in the Scratchpad app and watch in amazement as all your friends get selected.

  9. After all your friends have been selected click ‘Submit’.

That is all there is to it. You have now successfully and easily invited all your friends within mere seconds!

How to Unlike Facebook Pages and Delete Facebook Applications from Your Profile

Some of the most common questions I get regarding Facebook are how to unlike Facebook pages or delete Facebook applications. What seems fairly easy for me has become unnecessarily complicated to many because of the several profile changes Facebook has undergone in recent years.

So say you’ve already liked and added a bunch of pages and applications. How do you get them off your profile? Go to your Profile -> Info -> and then scroll down to “Activities and Interests”. Here’s what mine looks like:

All you have to do now is click on any of the pages that you want to unlike and it’ll take you to their Facebook Page. Let’s go with Ron Paul’s page. Once there, scroll down until you see the bottom of the left-hand sidebar. There you’ll find a link that says “Unlike.” Click it and that’s it! You now no longer like the Facebook page and it won’t show up in your news feed or on your profile. Not that you would ever ‘unlike’ Ron Paul. Blasphemy!

Unliking A Facebook Page

However, there is a faster way if you wish to unlike multiple Facebook pages at once. Instead of visiting all these facebook pages and “unliking” them one by one, you may follow these really simple steps below to achieve the same goal. First you’ll need to click “edit profile” on your profile page.

Now what about those applications that want to access your Facebook information, private life, friends and just about every conceivable ‘secret’ you hold dear? To delete them, go to the top right of any page and click Account -> Privacy Settings.

Here’s my Applications page. There are a bunch of options here, but all you’ll want to do is click the very first “Edit Settings” button.

This will pull up every Facebook application you’ve added to your profile. To delete  just click the gray X on the far right next to any application that you want to delete. Confirm that you want to remove the app and you’re all set. The application now can no longer access any of your information and is deleted.
