    Yes, I've searched the forums before starting this thread.

    Now, I'm not really trying to make $$ off facebook but I got some accounts with a few thousand friends that I'd like to invite them to a page.

    I used this code: javascript:elms=document.getElementById('friends').getElementsByTagName('li');for(var fid in elms){if(typeof elms[fid] === 'object'){fs.click(elms[fid]);}}

    Although it selects all friends, but doesn't seem to be really inviting all friends.

    I've heard that facebook set a limit on how many you can invite (per day I think) which is 50..

    So I'd like to know what's going on... How am I supposed to invite them friends to a page? Should I do it manually (since the code isn't functioning)... or that wouldn't matter since they REALLY put a limit on inviting friends??

    Thanks :)

    I have the same problem. I believe facebook has found a way to make the code not work anymore.

    Facebook is introducing alot of beta test changes. They've implemented a new friend request form for spam prevention. Additionally, they've introduced another "warning" system to caution a user before requesting a friend connection.

    Be very cautious of requesting friends outside your immediate network on Facebook.

    Yes back to normal as much as I can tell. I can't confirm it sent all invites, but my pages haven't seemed to slow down.

    Back to normal for me too. Might not last, they may be bouncing back between revisions or A-B testing or something though.

    I am not even sure if it is a matter of manually selecting all of your accounts' friends (50 at a time, all of them, or just using the good ole fashion JavaScript code), nor whether or not you have an automated program to send out the invites for you such as FFAP.

    As another member already mentioned, FB just recently changed their friend adding system. I also noticed around 1.5-2 weeks ago that they changed something when it came to sending invites to a fan page (possibly group and app invites tool, and I know they just did a number on Events as well).

    Around this time, I had made a fan page that was better than any of my previous pages (by a long shot). I loaded up several accounts which all have 100% USA friends. In the past, these same friends on these same accounts were VERY responsive compared to the last blast of invites that I did with the best fan page I have come up with to this date. My older fan pages would already have gained 30-50 fans 10 minutes after I finished sending out the invites (if not more, I cannot remember exactly); then my fans would be steadily increasing by 3-5 fans every 30 seconds to a minute. However, this was not the case with my newest and best fan page, but it was the same quality friends that were being invited, so I knew something was up.

    I am not totally sure what the deal is at the moment, but it seems FB has also implemented some advanced protection against invites as well, not just friend requests. I will have to study up on this new issue a bit more and perform some trial and error.

    I hate to say it, but FB is becoming harder and harder by the day, and unfortunately, IMHO...we have not seen ANYTHING yet. :(

    I think the JavaScript code has been dead for a while now. I am speaking in terms of it not even working (selecting all of your account's friends). It has been a long known fact that even if you are able to select all of your friends, any number over 50 will not be sent out.

    The only solution I can think of at the moment is to purchase an automated program that will do this for you, but as I posted above, I think FB is performing a major overhaul on their invitation system as well, so you might want to just sit back and let the smoke clear because unfortunately, we have not seen anything yet (concerning changes that they are making/are going to continue to make).

    While I am at it, let me just clear the air and say it kind of bugs me that people had the nerve to give me negative reputations, pretty much call me a jackass, and accuse me of trying to start hype and increase my post count when I warned that changes such as these were going to be coming a few weeks back. I mean, I am not going to lose any sleep over any of this, but I just want everyone to know that I am a straight forward guy. It is not about me being some genius, it is not about me being right, nor is it about me being able to "predict" the future (that would just be absurd); but if you ever see me posting such warnings again in the future, all I ask is that you please understand that they are nothing but educated guesses based off of my 10+ years of Internet Marketing experience.

    Yeah FB is getting harder by the day its getting out of hand. I really wish they would just give up and let us do whatever we want. I dont really see how its effecting the site TOOO much. Most people I know never even seen the stuff I do when I talk about it. I use automated programs to send invites. But i have to say i sent 4.2k invites 2 days ago and so far only have 500 fans usually its not like that but my fan page is normal no scripts or anything :/
