Facebook Mass Friend Selector Greasemonkey Script
You probably remember my first experimentation with Greasemonkey, my Follow All on Page Script for Twitter. Well I decided to approach another common problem with Greasemonkey… introducing my script to automatically select 200 of your friends at a time in Facebook.
Whenever we throw parties in Ithaca, it ends up being somebody’s (usually my) job to mass invite all of their friends on Facebook. Because there is no select all button, this means manually clicking each and every name, which can get quite boring.
Also, you can only invite 200 people at a time!
What this script does is add a feature to allow you to select 200 friends at a time, automatically. You can use it on any Facebook page with a friend selector for activities like sending messages, or whatever. It’s incredibly useful.
I have to say, I am a huge fan of Greasemonkey. I’m not going to show you how to install it again; for instructions, look at the Twitter script, or UserScripts.org.
Again, same agreement as last time, I will not support this script, but you are welcome to use it. It works for me.
Make sure you have Greasemonkey installed.
Install my Facebook Mass Friend Selector Script.
Now whenever you are on Facebook, the MFS window will appear in the top left, as seen below:
Whenever you find yourself on a page with a Friend Selector box, click the MFS window and voila! it will expand, as shown:
You then have the option of clicking one of the numbered groups. Clicking group #2 for instance, is identical to clicking friends 200-399, in a matter of a few seconds! It will even toggle, so if you accidentally click Group #1 when you wanted Group #3, you can click Group #1 again to unselect the group!
Again, your welcome.
