[facebook] Send private messages to friends

I need to get via Facebook connect user's info and send a private message to all of his friends. Is it possible?

The answer is


Sending private message through api is now possible.

Fire this event for sending message(initialization of facebook object should be done before).

to:user id of facebook

function facebook_send_message(to) {
    FB.ui({
        app_id:'xxxxxxxx',
        method: 'send',
        name: "sdfds jj jjjsdj j j ",
        link: 'https://apps.facebook.com/xxxxxxxaxsa',
        to:to,
        description:'sdf sdf sfddsfdd s d  fsf s '

    });
}

Properties

  • app_id
    Your application's identifier. Required, but automatically specified by most SDKs.

  • redirect_uri
    The URL to redirect to after the user clicks the Send or Cancel buttons on the dialog. Required, but automatically specified by most SDKs.

  • display
    The display mode in which to render the dialog. This is automatically specified by most SDKs.

  • to
    A user ID or username to which to send the message. Once the dialog comes up, the user can specify additional users, Facebook groups, and email addresses to which to send the message. Sending content to a Facebook group will post it to the group's wall.

  • link
    (required) The link to send in the message.

  • picture
    By default a picture will be taken from the link specified. The URL of a picture to include in the message. The picture will be shown next to the link.

  • name By default a title will be taken from the link specified. The name of the link, i.e. the text to display that the user will click on.

  • description

@VishwaKumar:

For sending message with custom text, you have to add 'message' parameter to FB.ui, but I think this feature is deprecated. You can't pre-fill the message anymore. Though try once.

FB.ui({
  method: 'send',
  to: '1234',
  message: 'A request especially for one person.',
  data: 'tracking information for the user'
});
