Facebook Forced Invite

On the Facebook social networking site, a forced invite is a term associated with Facebook applications. After installing some applications, users are then directed to a page where they are prompted to invite their Facebook friends to also install the application. Some applications require users to send these requests to successfully complete the installation of the application itself. In February 2008 Facebook updated its Facebook Platform Policy stating that the application must present the user with a friend invite page that includes a Facebook-rendered Skip, Cancel, or Skip This Stepbutton, or provide users with an alternative means to navigate off the friend invite page.
