At last!! Facebook is fixing the crazy Candy Crush invites

If you’re active user of Facebook, then you must  be used to those annoying Candy Crush invites. There’s this one girl that sends me invites daily. To say the truth, “That thing is annoying” 😐 There’s no day that passes I don’t receive multiple invites to come play Candy Crush. Thankfully many of us suffer the same fate.


Good news is Facebook is listening, and they’re planning for a fix. Basically, the fix will help users block the invites. In a Townhall Q&A session at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi, India, Mark Zuckerberg revealed that Facebook is working on a solution to the problem. He made the following statements:

“I sent a message to the person who runs the team in charge of our developer platform, and I said that by the time I do this Townhall Q&A, it would be good if we had a solution to this problem,”

“She emailed me later that night, and said there are some tools — that are kind of outdated — that allow people to send invitations to people who’ve never used a game, and don’t play games on Facebook. We hadn’t prioritized shutting that down, we just had other priorities. But if this is the top thing that people care about, we’ll prioritize that and do it. So we’re doing it!”

He never mentioned when the feature will be ready. There was also no hint on whether this will affect just Candy Crush or any other game invites. But hey! This is a good step in the right direction. We can all relate to the picture below:

      I’m hoping you’re referring to Candy Crush as “annoying” because you’ve actually tried playing it and is not based on the experience of others who play it?

      What are the “rules and requirements” of Candy Crush that you detest? I’m genuinely curious.

    It’s very easy to send out an invitation accidentally on Candy Crush. However I agree, people who have never played should never be sent an invite. If I’m correct an invite gives you extra lives or something along those lines?

    I find it has helped in the past to complete a level quicker but killing the invite option can’t come soon enough.
