Need to Act?

Do not lightly contribute to the viral invitation campaigns applied by many apps.

Send invitations only to friends about whom you are confident they may like your initiative.

App's secure their user-registrations by obtrusive (viral) invitations via friends who have registered. A registration is followed by a request to invite all your friends. If you are not concerned about your friend's freedom to explore by themselves what they like or not, then you may be inclined to continue the chain campaign.


A lot of App's are provided for Facebook (and for other platforms)


To all Facebook account holders (and some also to others who don't own a Facebook account).


If you receive such an unwanted invitation, it is not evident how to block it.
