Stop Facebook User From Sending App Invites For Applications

Invites to use applications on Facebook book can be annoying when over done. I don't use many apps and there are people I barely know (we all have FB friends like this) who send a trillion different app invites to me and they just pile up until I hit the "ignore" button.

One thing I have noticed is that the invites for these apps tend to come from the same people. How about you? Do you find that 80% of the application invites are created by only about 10% of the people sending them to you?  This is a good thing because it makes blocking application invites a lot easier.  You only have to stop a few people from sending these and it is easy to you.

This post will take you step by step through the process of preventing a Facebook user or users from sending you app invites.

Step 1 - Log into your Facebook account as you do every time you go on FB.

Step 2 - In the upper right hand corner of the screen there is a section called "Home"  Beside "Home" you will see a drop down arrow to the right.  See it? Go ahead and click the drop down arrow.

Step 3 - In the menu that appears click on "Privacy Settings"

Step 4 - Look to the bottom of the screen that appears and find "Blocked People and Apps"   You'll see what I mean in the image below. Click "Manage Blocking" to the right of this section.

Step 5 - Now, see the section called "Block App Invites" on your screen. It should look similar to the image you see below (just about in the middle of the pick below)  Go ahead and type your Friend's name in the block called "Block Invites From"  Their name might appear along with other names in a drop down. Make sure you select the right name.

Step 6 - Notice there is no "Save" or "OK" button or anything like that.  I just hit "Enter" key for good measure and I'm done. You'll see your FB friend's name appear below the "Block Invites From" box.

Now you are all done.

Note: If you go to enter a person's name and the box does not seem to be accepting the name, it is because 1) That person is not a 'Friend' so you can't block them 2) You are typing the name wrong.

That should do it!  Thanks for reading my " Stop Facebook User From Sending App Invites For Applications " article.
