When you are trying to invite your friends to your new Facebook Fan page, it can be very tedious – especially if you have hundreds of friends. So here’s a simple Facebook tip that will help you to quickly select all your friends so you can invite them all at the same time.
Login to your facebook account and navigate to your fanpage. I typically use the search function – just start typing the name of your page and then click on the suggested page when it shows your page.
Click on the link to Suggest to Friends. This will open a frame into the same window that shows a list of your friends.
Right click on the new frame and select in the drop down menu “Open frame in new tab” or “Open frame in new window”
Type a message to all your friends and click send invitation.
I have a video to show you exactly what I mean here:
Now you know how to easily select all your friends on Facebook. This works for your page, an event, or any other place on facebook that you can send invitations. You can use it to invite friends anywhere the friend picker window shows up!
As of 1-30-2011 this method works – specifically with Chrome and Firefox browsers (I haven’t figured out how to make it work on Internet Explorer yet). 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 – so just check back if it appears to stop working.
