Facebook invites

A bit of a rant, but it has to be said. Please will everyone consider who they are inviting when they create a group or event and if they would really be interested in joining or going, or more to the point able to join or go. For instance, why invite me to an event thats in another part of the country to me when my calendar clearly states I’m in leeds? Also groups; look at your friends current groups and their profile and decide if your group fits their tastes. Inviting a non-religeous person to a religeous group isn’t a good idea really is it.

The real reason for my gripe is the amount of time it takes me to clear things I’m not interested in. Every day I get invites for events and groups, perhaps 10 or more a day, that I have to then select cancel or not attending to. If thought had been put into the invitations, perhaps I might only have 2 or 3 – much more manageable. I know it doesn’t sound like it takes much time, but its a pain and one that could be avoided. If you don’t think your friend might be truely interested or almost definitely around to make the decision to attend then don’t click the invite button. Please?

    Friends should know you enough to know what you’d like invites to 😉

    That’s quite true Kieran but you know what, the one time they don’t invite you, you’ll probably ask the question; Why wasn’t I invited….It’s my right to decline so how dare they not invite me!!!!! Or….it’ll be the one thing that you say, Jeez, I wish I’d gone to that when all your other friends say what a great time they had..

    Thats so true, still, we usually e-mail and text our plans too (and shock horror talk about them face to face! lol) so I think I’ll get by. You’re right though – I’d kick myself if I missed out due to my blog posting!
