add_friends Linux Command Reference Example: add_friends command man page


add_friends - Send friend requests to another user's friends.


# Send friend requests to everyone in user 12345's friend list.
add_friends [-q] 12345
add_friends will run, printing status for you. When it hits a CAPTCHA reqponse, it will display a URL for you to copy&paste into your web browser, and prompt you to continue. Stop when you like, and start again 'cause it'll just skip over those who are already your friend and those for whom you have pending friend requests.
If the "-q" flag is specified, add_friends runs in "quiet" mode, and will stop instead of prompting for a CAPTCHA response.

Known Issues

Friend requests are not logged, so if someone denies your request, it will be resent the next time the script is run if they're in the list of friends again (i.e. if you run it on the same profile, which you probably will). The only current workaround is to use the database options in FriendAdder, which this script doesn't yet support.
