    Can't find that "show friend list to everyone" box. Help!

  • ozzyboy281 Apr 10, 2011

    Mt blue bar only shows "home," "profile." and "account." I can't see how to navigate to that "Edit Box" you are showing me (where I uncheck that Show friend list to everyone" box).

  • ozzyboy281 Apr 10, 2011

    It's showing "select everyone," but I still cannot make a friends list show up on the "to" line of a message I want to sent. Do I check another option?

  • ozzyboy281 Apr 10, 2011

    Nope. The new Firefox did not solve it. Still can't make my friends list show on the "to" line of a message.

  • ozzyboy281 Apr 11, 2011

    When I try to send a message to a friend list, friend lists will not show up when I type the name of the list on my "to" line. Are there any other solutions that the ones already suggested. This is an urgent matter since I need to communicate with several friend lists in connection with a funeral.

  • ozzyboy281 Apr 11, 2011

    Sorry, I thought you had access to the previous items in my case. It's not an e-mail problem it's a Facebook ("friend list") problem. I'm trying to send Facebook messages to friend lists. Any friend list name I try to type into the "to" line will not show up. This is a new problem that I have not previously encountered. I have had Facebook for two years and have always been able to message friend lists.

  • ozzyboy281 Apr 11, 2011

    I'm not having trouble entering individual friends' name, it's when I try to type in a FRIEND LIST that the problem occurs. The FRIEND LIST will not show up in the "to" line.

    I cannot see your most recent response. Please re-send. Thanks.

It looks like you didn't mention how and from which program you are trying to send the email. Eg, Ms-Outlook or Internet explorer and also Yahoo! Mail or Gmail or etc... If you are sending from Ms-outlook, don't forget to mention the version, eg.. Ms-Outlook 2003 or 2007. I don't think it's good giving answers in assumption. Please also mention the operating system installed on your computer. Thanks.

    Ok, thanks, I assume you have upgraded to the New Facebook Message, since I am uploading the screenshot of the message box for your reference.. Open the message box and type in "@" (without quotes) just before you start typing the friend name, eg.. if you are entering John Smith, type in "@joh...." and it should show up before you finish typing his full username.. You have to repeat the same procedure before entering all your friends' name, make sure you give one space in the beginning just before @.. In the same way, you can mention your friends in your comments or in your status postings.. I hope you already know this :)



    Here's the screenshot:









    If this doesn't work, then the problem must be with your browser, not with facebook. Try it on another browser or on another computer. To troubleshoot this similar issue, make sure you've installed adobe flash player for your browser, or try upgrading it. You can download Adobe Flash Player from HERE.


    It's also important to reinstall or upgrade Java Runtime.. You can download Java from HERE.





    If nothing is helpful, uninstall and reinstall your browser, make sure you install both Java and Adobe Flash Player.



    Let me know if you need further help..



    Good Luck.





    Thanks for using FixYa.

    I am sorry, but this feature is no longer available after the launch of the facebook new message version. More than that, you can't send message to more than 20 friends at a time. I am sorry for my misunderstanding. Sometimes creating a new list does the trick but not always. I am not very sure what's the exact problem since I am not a facebook developer and they never disclose these things to the outside world.

    You can try creating a new list of 20 friends each, more than that, you can nothing, you won't be able to send message to friendlist having more than 20 users. Open the friend page, click "Create New", add your friends maximum 20 and give the friendlist a name, save it and open message, hit "send new message" and try typing in the new friendlist you've just created. I can't assure this will definitely work, but I've tried it a few times and sometimes it worked, but sometimes not. Make sure Java is enabled or installed, otherwise it won't worth trying..

    Once again good luck..

    Sorry for the delay...

Trying to send "message" on Facebook to more than 1 friend


I'm guessing that your using the Website on PC/Laptop/Mac.
To send a group message you click the messages icon then send a new message.
e7a7eba3-9559-4915-8bec-fb524b6dcbff.png
A new message box will appear at the bottom of the screen, you can then enter the names of the people you want to message here.
6a916140-9bd9-4c92-8ea6-97d390a838fa.png
If they are not showing up it is one of a few reasons, you are not friends with them on Facebook (may not have accepted request yet or blocked you), your spelling their name wrong slightly, or simularly they may have renamed themselves to something like <3Chris etc which wouldn't show up properly.

In this case look for them using the search at the top of Facebook and copy their name as it is there, if that still doesn't work just message them directly and add other people to the chat.
This is done by clicking this icon.

How do I "message" more than 1 friend on facebook?


There should be a text field where you can enter names. As soon as you enter a few letters, Facebook will filter your contacts to show only those with names matching what you've typed.

How do I get a sidebar for friends list on my facebook ?


If you don't see the sidebar, just click Chat in the bottom right corner of your screen, which shows the same list of friends you'll find in your sidebar."
To chat with any friend in the new sidebar, click on their name and the chat window opens up.
You'll know when a friend is available to chat depending on the icon next to their name.
If friends aren't available to chat, you can still send them a message and they can read it later. Chat messages are also viewable via the Messages (email) box.
To chat with a friend not listed in the new sidebar, start typing their name in the search box at the bottom of the list.

Instructions
  1. Download the application. The Application is available through the BlackBerry website (see Resources below). Have the download link sent to the email address you use on your BlackBerry. Once the email arrives in your BlackBerry inbox, click on the link provided and follow the prompts. You will need to type in your Facebook user name and password to complete the download process. Once the application is loaded you will see a row of icons at the top of the screen.
  2. Set your Facebook status. Use the track ball to click on the first icon (which looks like a person's silhouette with a phone) and update your own status and see your friends' recent status updates. It may take a minute to upload the status list so be patient.
  3. Add mobile photos. Use the track ball to click on the camera icon, and a browser box will pop up with a camera option and the pictures from your phone. If you pick the camera option it will take you into your camera, and from there you can take a picture. Once the picture is taken, press the "Menu" button. Select "Send to Facebook" from the pop-up menu and that photo will post to your Facebook account. You can give the picture a caption and "Tag" the photo before you upload it. If you want to post a picture you have already taken, you can scroll through the photos in the browser box. Select the picture, and it will give you the caption and tag options.
  4. See your friends. The next icon will bring up your friends list. If you highlight a friend's name and press the menu button, a menu will pop up allowing you to poke him, write on his wall, send a message and view his profile.
  5. Add friends, poke and write on walls. The next three icons are pretty self explanatory. The silhouette with the "+ 1" allows you to send friend invites. Just type in the email addresses and a message and click on "Invite." The poke action is next on the icon list; just type in your friend's name and click poke. The wall function is similar: Type in your friend's name and then it will let you type a message.
  6. Check and send mail. From here you can see your Facebook Inbox and compose messages. Only messages you have received since you added the application will show up. To send a message, type in the name of the recipient and an email box will pop up.
  7. Get your notifications. Each time a notification comes through, an alert will be sent to your phone. To access the alert, go to the Facebook icon on your menu. The notifications will be listed like your text messages and emails. You can act directly on some of the notifications from the listing. Other notifications require you to log in to the mobile or Web versions of Facebook to continue.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

Can't delete the recent messages log on the LG CU920


Go into a new text message and hit the "send to" option. Scroll down to the first name above the line and hit the "options" button. Scroll down and select "Recent messages" and choose whoever from that list that you'd like to be your top 3. I actually just sent all three of mine a blank text, but when I went back to the "send to" list voila! MORE INFO: I tried all kinds of things to remove names from my top three recipients list. What ended up working was to send a text to multiple recipients at once. Two was enough. But it was important who I selected first. I sent a message to my wife and my friend. My wife's name got added back to my top three! Then I reversed and sent a message to my friend and to my wife. His name got added back!
