The question was
Is there any way to send an email to every member of a group in Facebook given that I’m the admin of that group? Or just send a message to every member of that group and they will see it on their Facebook inbox?
If this is not possible may I know if there is a way to get all the Facebook email addresses of members in a group so that I can just use the usual messaging system in Facebook to send a message to each of those emails?
My solution was
This is going to require a little coding and some Facebook Open Graph knowledge.
- You must be logged into facebook 🙂
First you will need to query all the members of your group. Here is an example query
This only works on groups you are a member of. Also my example link is set to take the first 50. If you need more adjust the Url query accordingly. The important number in this is the gid. Your gid can be found in the url of the group page.
Now you have all the uid (user ids)
These uid’s can be used to get their user account names Example:
Here is Brad’s
Take the account names and append
- Create a csv with all the email addresses copy this line into Facebook messenger.
You would want to automate this in a script, as manually looking up each individual user name would be tedious.
