    It seems that the javascript trick for selecting all our friends for inviting them to a group doesn't work anymore...Does anyone know a javascript to do that or another way? Thanks for your help!

    same here, i just noticed a few hours ago, does not work on chrome, Firefox or explorer anymore, well it never worked on explorer i don't think but i just tried it now on there anyway to check and all three don't work.

    There may be 1 exception out of 1000 accounts but i'm sure its just a case of their system catching up with 500 million accounts, i guess it must take a few hours to roll anything out over that much data.

    Fortunately i made a macro, but it takes 1 minute to select just over 100 people, most of my accounts have 1000 - 1200 friends in them so it takes around 12 minutes to log in with them and invite select everyone, then it logs out and selects the next person logs in and does the same thing again, its the best alternative i have to automate things, if anyone has another method I'm willing to pay big time for another java-script or what ever is needed to select them all in one go when inviting to groups or pages.

    this has really pissed on my bonfire as i just bought a few computers to scale up! FB are A wholes!

    Another possible solution is to manually select 50 friends, invite them, select the next 50 and so on.

    However, this can be seen as a daunting task in which case you should either generate/create your own UBOT/iMacros script to do so for you, post in the hire a freelancer section for a program to only invite friends(I say only, as by only having one function the product should be cheaper, $30-$50), or to purchase FFAP(However, there is a high price attached to this)

    Thanks for the info, i had no idea its not been working that long. i guess i procrastinated longer than i thought ;)...

    I'm going to search this forum for FFAP and see what i can learn about it, as i have no idea what that is. I just got off the phone to a client who buys pages from me and he said that he bought a program called ******************** a few weeks ago and was using that, when i suggested that i will purchase it he said no as he had been contacted by the owner in a generic email stating that there will no longer be any support for the product, and it seemed that he had been contacted by facebook with a cease letter stopping him from doing it, and that its likely that this product will stop working soon.

    Has anyone else had an email like this as i looked at their site and it seemed that it would be the solution to my problem but if its going down the tubes i wont spend that much money on it.

    With regards to using imacros i made one using jitbit (******* awesome program by the way) a long time ago that still works but it only works on one browser and takes 10 minutes to select 1000 people, and unless i can get all my accounts to be around 1000 friends exactly then it will be really inefficient as i will have to start it in each account as opposed to being able to automate the whole process of logging in and out in the same macro so i wont have to be in front of one computer and can have 5 running without me. I guess its not a bad method and will work as long as i keep all my accounts within 20 friends of each other but i would still love to know more about FFAP whatever it is.

    Thanks for the help guys i was starting to freak out ;)

    i still invite friends with this simple js javascript:fs.select_all(); i think its working because i invited friends to join my page. ok let say it works only 50 friends will be invited, so if you have 5000 friends, do it 100 times, and it takes only 3 clicks/invite :

    - suggest to friends
    - copy javascript:fs.select_all(); paste in your browser and hit go!
    - click invite.

    100 times if you have more time to do it :D

    don't complain if this method doesn't work! because this my simple method :p
