Faded Industry has been in the event and nightlife promotions business for close to 7 years now and very much know that Facebook Event Invites and Notifications can be extremely annoying. Facebook event invites used to be a powerful tool for getting the word out about an event but over time, along with the growth of Facebook, they have become an extreme annoyance.
Just about every single day I see someone post a status about how pissed they are that their friends keep sending them invites for events. Like any good product, terrible marketers have turned Facebook events into a product that people hate as opposed to a great tool to share an event. It’s life, these kinds of things happen.
As opposed to posting a status and crying about how much I dislike Facebook event invites, I simply have set up my profile to ignore the annoying marketers and leave it open to my friends who post about something relevant to me like a house party or friend’s surprise party. You too can achieve a profile that ignores the spam marketers and only delivers fresh, relevant, and interesting notifications to you! Do not fear.
The great thing about Facebook is they have all the tools in place to make your news feed and notifications a pleasant experience for you, you just choose to ignore them and whine about it. That is why I will now walk you through the extremely simple process of blocking Facebook Event Invites!
HOW TO STOP FACEBOOK EVENT INVITES
- Select Privacy Settings from the dropdown menu in the upper-right corner
- Select Blocking from the left menu
- In the Block Event Invites section, enter the names of friends you do not wish to send you event invitations
If you no longer wish to receive event invitations from a specific friend, you can follow these steps to block future invitations:
It’s as simple as 1-2-3! So, if you no longer wish to accept event invites from an annoying friend, type their name in and you will never see another Facebook event invite from them ever again. For example, if you no longer want to get event invites from me, type in my name Pat Hanavan and for the rest of your life, you will never get an event invite from me! I will completely understand if you do that, but, you will probably miss out on some cool events if you do. Hopefully this helps!
