TRANSCRIPT

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 doesnt allow you to select all friends when sending an invite. I mean, theyll let you do it but only if you click one at a time! Uugh. Well anyway I went on a little search and found that you could cheat the system by inserting a little javascript to make it happen! Here is how to do it: 1. Go to your Event, Group or page and click Invite People. 2. Once the page has loaded you should see all of your friends, but they are not selected. 3. At this point, copy and paste the javascript code below into your Web browsers address bar, then hit Enter. 4. If all goes well, it selects all of your friends! 5. IMPORTANT: NOW YOU MUST WAIT!!! If you have a lot of 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!!!!!!!!!!javascript:elms=document.getElementById('friends').getElementsByTagName('li') ;for(var fid in elms){if(typeof elms[fid] === 'object'){fs.click(elms[fid]);}}

If that first method doesnt work for you give this a try: Right click the friend box and open it in a new tab Then paste this ==> javascript: fs.select_all() Finally, there is now a Chrome extension called Facebook Invite All, so if you are using the Chrome browser you can pick that up and it will add the ability to invite all your friends and there is a GreaseMonkey script for Firefox to Invite All 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 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.

UPDATEIf none of that is working for you, try the following:

javascript:function check_all_in_document(doc){var c=new Array();c=doc.getElementsByTagName('input');for(var i=0;i
