This feature allows to poke friends in Facebook accounts.

It is is equivalent to clicking the "Poke" link in friend's details in your Facebook account.


Before using this feature, please make sure you have the following:

  1. At least one validated Facebook account - friends in this account (or accounts) will be poked.

How to use this feature

There are several ways to start the wizard:

  • go to Main menu->Wizards->Facebook and click on the corresponding wizard.
  • go to the list of Facebook accounts (Facebook->Accounts tab), select the ones you need to send pokes from, right-clik the mouse and under the Bulk tasks select the wizard

Once in the wizard, you need to specify one or more Facebook accounts (if you haven't already done so under Facebook->Accounts tab). If you specify multiple accounts, then the software will poke their friends in parallel.

It is not possible to select specific friends in each account (and probably not needed), but it is possible to specify percentage of the friends. For example, if you selected 2 Facebook accounts for this feature, one having 100 friends and the other one 70 friends, and set the wizard to poke 50% of randomly selected friends, then the software will select random 50 friends from the first account, and random 35 friends from the second one, and poke them.

Finally, you can set the Schedule for this task. If left empty, the task will start immediately, as soon as you click "Finish" button. Otherwise, it will be scheduled to run at the time (or times) of your choice. This article covers scheduling feature in detail.

This feature creates a Bulk task. Please read more about bulk tasks and how to manage them here
