How to Select All Friends on Facebook

Selecting all friends on Facebook is really a big deal because the Social Networking Behemoth Facebook doesn’t allow it for their beloved users. Facebook developers, a big group shorten some terms for their users because of some security and performance reasons. It was really a problem when you have 4000+ friends in your friend list and want to send a message to all friends or want to promote your page.

Why Facebook not allows to Select All Friends


The Social King Facebook not allowed multiple selections of friends because of some performance issues. Whenever you would try to select all or multiple friends with the use of only one key feature than it goes stuck. That is why Facebook never enabled that beautiful feature for their guys and girls.

  1. It's a beauty. I can make it work in IE, but it stops at 75 friends. Haven't found a way around that.

  2. Sometimes, we select some of our friends and after that trying to implement that scripts, it's wrong!
    Try it with fresh tab or page..
    I used "Opera's latest version" for 1st java script and I was succeeded.

  3. Hi, This doesn't work in Google Chrome, it just google searches the code instead

  4. Copy/pasting into the browser will leave out the "javascript:" you may have to type that in! It worked for me in IE (at work).

  5. JavaScript has just finished a major revision of its specifications for the language. Once browser companies adopt these standards, web developers will be provided with more tools to improve their capabilities in creating web applications.
