Inviting your friends to like your Facebook by geographical location – or interest

Because sometimes you don’t need
ALL your friends to like your page.

You know how annoying it is when you get a request to like a page about something that is of no interest to you? Or to like a local business that is in another country?

Well if you run a Facebook page, there will be some of your friends who you don’t need to like it. Besides, if you have a lot of friends it could take ages to invite them all. (Now that they got rid of the clever “invite all” hack)

However, you do want to get as many genuine likes on your page as possible so it is worth getting everyone in your group to invite all relevant friends.

I am assuming that the reader will already be a Facebook user, and is able to cope with the basics, but it may be a bit patronising for Facebook experts. it also assumes that you are an admin of the page that you want to invite people to, although there isn’t much difference even if you are not an admin.

Step 1.

Open the page that you want to invite people to like and click on the "See All" link next to "Invite Friends".

Step 2.

A pop up box opens showing a list of friends with whom you have recently interacted. Click on the drop down arrow to bring up a list of other options.

Step 3.

The drop down menu lists a number of geographical areas. These will be different depending on where most of your friends have told Facebook they live.  Click on the location you want to invite people from and a list of friends from there will appear.  Below the geographical list there is a list of groups which you have been active in, and below that is your own interest lists.  Some of your friends may not have entered a location but they may appear in some of these lists as well.

Step 4.

You can just repeat this process going through each location or interest group that you think might be relevant, and invite each person with a simple click.

When you have finished just click “CLOSE” and your friends will be invited to like the page.
