Facebook AutoPoke Script – Poke Back All at Once!


One of Devils Workshop reader mailed me this screenshot (at the right) of her facebook account! Being user of our Facebooks anti-apps Ignore ALL & Block ALL scripts she requests a way so that she can "poke back" all pokers at once. 

Thanks to GreaseMonkey, we can use a auto poke script!

When installed this script will automatically check if somebody had poked you whenever you go to your facebooks homepage. If it sees any pending pokes, it will automatically poke back the poker. (Check following screenshot!)

Hi there!! I installed the script, but now I’m not seeing poke notifications at all. I’ve been in a poke war, so I have to imagine I’m being poked (hehe) but I’m not seeing any notifications. I’m running Firefox 2.0. Any ideas?

If script gets installed successfully, just visiting your facebook homepage auto-poke all pokers.
The text “poke back” as shown in sidebar is changed to “Auto-Poked!” if all goes well. (see screenshots in post…)

Just in case, if you are new to GreaseMonkey scripts, refer to this quick & short GreaseMonkey tutorial! 🙂

Rest, there is no problem with Firefox 2.0…

I got it to work if you edit the script after installing go to grease monkey and manage user scripts select the facebook poke then add the facebook home page link face book change there home page link the ones inside dont match

Robby January 3, 2011

Side note leave the other pages in take just go to face book log in click home and copy the top link into included pages love the script by the way

NevoraskiA January 7, 2011

It works for me, but only partially correct. It will auto-poke when I log into facebook, but not every time I visit my facebook home. Any input or suggestions? LOL… is there a script that I can install that will just automatically repoke no matter whether I’m at the computer or not?… like some script I can post into my facebook information boxes.

nick91 March 20, 2011

Didn’t works for me. I tried to change my home page link in the script but it’s still Auto-poke failed! [1.1] Anyone know how to install correctly the script ?

Grimsheep April 2, 2011

I think facebook has changed their code again and the result is making the autopoker not work =[

Can you please send me an email when you have it working again?

There is also this great alternative for an auto-poker as an extension to Google Chrome, which will soon get a major update, and is also about to be released to safari and firefox:
