EDIT: Please read the comments before reading this entire post. This is no longer supported and I will not be held responsible for what you do with it. I’m not even sure any of this still works.
To resurrect this method and to help John Chow and his hearty following, I’ve come up with 2 simple alternatives to help you continue to easily do this task without resorting back to clicking on each and every one of your friends. The first method uses the same code John posted, but very slightly altered to ensure that it works every time. Here’s how to implement it, if you’re a FireFox user, without having to paste the code into the URL bar every time:
Step 1: Enable your Bookmarks Toolbar (if it isn’t already)
1a: Right-click the menu bar and make sure there is a check next to “Bookmarks Toolbar”
Step 2: Add a new bookmark to the toolbar
2a: Right-click the Bookmarks Toolbar and select “New Bookmark…”
Step 3: Edit the bookmark properties
3a: Type a short name for your bookmark (shorter is better!)
3c: Click the “Add” button (you should have noticed your newly made button by now)
That’s all there is to it! You can go test it out now. If you find that this method still no longer works for you, then Facebook is up to its silly little games again. They seem to roll-out changes to people at different times. For me, this method is still alive and well. If you can’t use this method, here’s another simple alternative for you FireFox users:
Step 1: Install the Greasemonkey extension (found here)
Step 2: Install this Greasemonkey script (found here)
Yup, simple as clicking the install buttons found on each of those sites. If you’ve followed all the steps correctly, you should now have 2 working methods to select all your friends on Facebook. Happy inviting!
If either of these methods helped you, or if you seem to be having some sort of issue with them, please post in the comments below to let me know. Thanks for reading!
EDIT: As of 8/25/2010 Facebook has changed their coding…
EDIT: I have fixed the coding to work again!!!
I had a video demo of this script in action, but Facebook deleted my account and I no longer have the video. For whatever reason any new account I make, at least the ones with my identity, get deleted. Facebook officially hates me and I no longer partake in any Facebook activities, for the time being. Thanks for all your support, it was fun while it lasted.
