Invitations via facebook?


Hi all,

Is it possible to invite users via facebook if you don’t have their e-mail address?



No, invitations require an email address. If your forum allows people to request accounts, you could just send them a link to the forum to your Facebook contacts.


I wonder if it’d be possible for us to send out invites the same way those games do:

Granted, I’m pretty sure these are universally hated, but if it came from someone you trust and the invitation is to “Civilized Discourse”, you might not look for that close button right away :wink:


My guess would be that fb will only allow you to invite people to something on fb itself. So you’d have to create a page or so which then encourages people to join the forum…


Blerg, most likely. @pfaffman’s method is probably best.
