For most people, accepting Facebook friend requests is not much of a burden. Requests trickle into your inbox from time to time, you open the Facebook notifications page, press accept, and move on. Some people, however, may get many requests each day, so many that it becomes a real problem to deal with all of them in a timely manner.
For example, let’s say you’re doing an internet promotion, and it really starts to take off. Accepting hundreds of requests per day could take up a lot of time. Another example would be someone coordinating a large event. If there was a way of quickly accepting all these requests, it could save you a considerable amount of time.
Unfortunately, Facebook does not provide any tools or setting to automatically accept friend requests, however with a little work, it is possible to build your own solution. Let’s see how.
Go to http://www.facebook.com/friends/edit/?sk=requests. This will bring up all of your outstanding friend requests.
- Press enter, and all of your outstanding friend requests will be accepted.
Some people have the opposite problem: unwanted friend requests that must be rejected en masse. An example may be someone who suddenly becomes well-known, and has hundreds or thousands of strangers trying to friend them. Fortunately, the same technique, with slightly different code, can be used to reject all incoming friend requests:
- Once again, go to http://www.facebook.com/friends/edit/?sk=requests to bring up all of your outstanding friend requests.
- Enter this code in the address bar:
- All of your outstanding friend requests will be rejected.
While this technique is fairly easy to use, it could get painful if you had to do it manually multiple times per day. For users that need to use these scripts frequently, there are several ways to automate the process.
For FireFox, the Facetweak extension provides a one-click implementation of the above process, plus other handy Facebook-specific tools. No extensions to automatically accept or reject friend requests currently exist for other browsers, but keep looking, since new extensions are added all the time.
On the mac, TextExpander is a popular text expansion utility, while Keyboard Maestro is one example of a macro utility. On Windows, try PhraseExpress for text expansion and AutoHotkey for macros.
If you would like a more powerful way to control Facebook, you can also develop code that connects directly to the service’s Application Program Interface (API). This method will allow you the maximum amount of control, not only for accepting friend requests, but for other tasks.
