    1. I have a few fan pages going, but when I send updates to the members, where do they see the updates - on their wall? Because I tried sending updates to a few fake accounts, and I never see it on the wall.

    2. I tried using the "select all friends" code:

    Code:
    javascript:elms=document.getElementById('friends') .getElementsByTagName('li');for(var fid in elms){if(typeof elms[fid] === 'object'){fs.click(elms[fid]);}}
    and it only selects 9 members at a time. Is this a new block on FB?


    Thanks all...

    This javascript function does NOT work on Internet Explorer. Try it with Firefox and it should work.

    Hes talking here about sending an Updates via the Fan page's settings. Hes not talking about the regular status update. I would like to know what does this "Update" thingy does.

    Thanks guys!! Yea, I tried that code in Firefox and it froze, so that's why I tried (yuk) explorer!



    And yes, you're right - it's the update status within the fan page settings. That's what I don't know where it displays!!

    I'm also interested in this... i've never seen a page that i'm a fan of change status like that. Where is the "update status" located in the fan page settings, I don't see it there just looking around briefly...

    If you created the fan page go to:

    Applications (bottom left of the screen)

    >Ads & Pages

    >Pages

    >Send an update to fans (under "Promote your page")

    If it's your own fan page and you want to message all of them with an update, then it will go to their update section. This is found on the homepage when they click on inbox to view a message, and it's on the left side. So it doesn't even go to their inbox.

    hey bro you are using the script in internet explorer. You can select all people only in firefox because it shows all fan or members or friends in a single page.

    status updates reach all walls
    share your page URL and we can figureout what's wrong there

    Thanks, but it's like Bobbylove said, Fan page updates go to a "hard to find" area, whereas the regular status updates you're talking about go to the wall.

    Fan Pages dont go to "Hard to find area"
    infact they are on the News Feed if they get few comments n on Live feed if its not liked or commented by someone

    Are you sure? Cuz the only way I can view my fan page updates is to go to inbox, then updates.

    When you invite friends and the window is open that has all your friends in it, THAT'S the time to paste the code into the URL part of your browser. It HAS to be Firefox, not Explorer!
