    I decided to make a thread for this after seeing a ton of threads with a lot of people not knowing what completely is going on.

    When you use the code to select all of your friends, it does select all of them, but it only sends out about 50-75. So pretty much you just need to keep going back and selecting all and sending them out till you can no longer select anyone. It does take a little bit of time, but not too much.

    I hope I helped some people. Oh and here is the code just in case some people don't know it.

    javascript:fs.select_all();

    You need to use google chrome..it selects them all still. Iv tested it on many of my own pages. If it doesnt work for you, you need to check the code.

    Yes it selects them all, but when you send them and go back and select them all again it shows that only 50-75 were sent out.

    GUYS THIS IS HOW IT WORKS.
    Whenever you invite more than 50 people.. Using code or manually it doesnt matter..

    whenever its more than 50 people. The first 50 people get invited instantly. the rest go and get put in a queue.. Its like a huge TODO list.. if u invited 800.. 50 get invited right then by your browsers. 750 go on a huge TODO list with all the other invites from all other facebook users.

    Sometimes the servers queue are so clogged up with invites that they crash and forget about your invites. Sometimes there so busy it takes a few days for them to get to your invites.

    Thats whats happening now on facebook. This is why it appears it only invites the first 50.

    No... I'm pretty sure it ONLY sends out 50 invites.
    I've never heard of this "to do" list.

    It only sends the first 40-50 and ignores the rest.

    What I can say from my personal experience is that there IS a to-do list - but not all the times - sometimes it sends only 50 and stops there, sometimes it goes 50 and then 50 after 50 after 50 in the future - once it took 2 days for FB to send the rest of requests when I made some event...

    However, my strategy revolves around facebook events, so it might be that there is some different mechanism - I don't know, I just talk from my experience because I've been strictly observing (my f5 button is mainly out of function cuz of too many reloads :D) the numbers of invited people.

    Yes it has been discussed to death, but there is still significant discussion that the rest go into a queue. I am not sure about this, but I always invite all friends because they might go into a queue and its no skin off my back to just use the select all code, and its actually quicker then manually selecting them.

    If there is a queue, I am unaware of it. However, think about it. The point of only sending out 50 requests max was to stop people from mass inviting their friends. Why would FB put these suggestions into a queue? Totally defeats their original purpose, plus it clogs up their servers. You think they are going to allow a bunch of spam suggestions to clog up their servers? I think not.

    While their servers are never truly "clogged" to the point where their site won't load, it is still clogging the servers in the sense that it is taking up unnecessary space. FB allowing spam suggestions to take up unnecessary space? Think about it.

    Also, they might have a queue for let's say, 100 or 150 suggestions, as this is the normal friend count for the average FB user, but anything over that (especially 1,000+) is obviously spam.

    I tend to invite them all, then just leave it overnight, I have a fake facebook account to check that it sent to to everyone.

    Does this work? Do all of the invites finally get sent out?
