How to select all Facebook contacts: In the past I have already dealt with how to select all Facebook contacts when you have to send invitations for an event or a page, but the managers of the social network continue to change the mechanics of the site and some of the methods that until recently worked no longer work.

So here I am to offer you a new updated guide in which we will discover together all the techniques currently working to select all the friends on Facebook and send out invitations in bulk with no effort. Take advantage of it before Facebook changes the cards once again!

If you want to find out how to select all Facebook contacts and use the browser Google Chrome, all you have to do is connect to the Chrome Web Store website and install the free extension Facebook Invite All who, as his name suggests quite easily, adds a button to Facebook that allows you to select all friends at the same time to send them invitations to an event. To complete the installation, just click on the button first Free and then on add.

Once the add-on installation is complete, connect to Facebook and select the page you want to invite all your friends to, then click on the button […] located on the cover image and select the item Invite friends from the menu that appears. When the box with the list of contacts opens, scroll to the bottom (in order to load all the names) and click on the Facebook Invite All present in the Chrome address bar to send invitations.

As for the events, fortunately the Facebook staff has decided to introduce a function to select all friends at the same time. This means that there is no longer a need for external plugins. To take advantage of this feature, go to the section Events of your profile, create or select an existing event and click on the button Invite.

If you don’t see the invitation button, press the button […] and select the item Invite friends from the menu that opens. Next, select the option All of the friends from the left sidebar, click on the item Select all located at the top right and press the button Send invitations to complete the operation.

If you use the browser instead Mozilla Firefox, for select all Facebook contacts and invite them to “like” a page you have to resort to a script to “inject” via the developer console. Then proceed to select the fan page of your interest, click on […] and select the item Invite friends from the menu that opens.

Then press the button Alt on the PC keyboard, go to the menu Tools> Web Development> Web Console that appears at the top to access the developer console and scroll down to the bottom of the friends list. Finally, paste the code you find below into the web console and press the key Enter on the PC keyboard.

javascript:var inputs = document.getElementsByClassName('uiButton _1sm');
for(var i=0; i<inputs.length;i++) {
inputs[i].click();
}

For events you can use the feature included “standard” in Facebook, as seen previously for Chrome.
