How to LikeRush, or Invite All Your Friends to Like Your Facebook Page

June 17, 2015

You've set up a brand new company or community page, and you want to get as many page likes as possible! Getting all your friends to like your Facebook page at once, aka LikeRush, is the first step. If you do it too often, you risk alienating your friend base, but without getting into the potential drawbacks, we'll dive straight into the instructions.

This tutorial works on Chrome and does not require you to install anything.

How to LikeRush in 5 Easy Steps

Step 1

While logged into your personal Facebook profile, visit the new page you've created.

Step 2

Click the ellipses on the dropdown list of the page you admin (to the right of your Call-to-Action Button) and then click the "Invite Friends" button.

Step 3

Next, scroll all the way down to the bottom of your friend list. Allow all of your friends to populate – once the popup stops scrolling, you're ready to likerush!

Step 4

Finally, click CTRL+J to open the developer box on your screen. Here, you're going to post this Javascript line, kindly provided by Stefan Persson on LinkedIn Pulse

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

Facebook will give you a warning not to post this content. Post at your own risk. I've used it many times and have not found it to be malicious, but beware that using untested code can make your Facebook page susceptible to whatever the coder has created!

Step 5

Hit the ENTER key.

Boom! You just likerushed your friends list! My measly list of 400 people that I actually know in real life only took 10 seconds to send. Now we wait and let the likes roll in! Likerushing is a valuable tactic to use on important pages for new and competitive brands. There is huge value in getting your page up-and-running as soon as possible.

For example:

  1. The sooner your site has page likes, the sooner you can claim a great Facebook URL for your brand, which will affect how people find you on Facebook and in search engines.
  2. The more likes you have, the higher Facebook ranks you. That's right – even above your competitors. This extends to search engines as well so hit the ground running!

With great power comes great responsibility, so don't waste your chances to likerush on pages that can wait. Your audience will only tolerate being asked to like your pages so many times. Get all your friends to like your page when it counts. Like requests are a favor – don't abuse the privilege!
