While Facebook is a great place to converse with friends and enjoy a decent virtual social life, it’s not without its annoyances. The social media platform started the apps and games service a few years ago, which has now grown into a multi-million dollar enterprise.
However, there are some users out there who are not really looking to spend time on these services while accessing Facebook. So naturally when they receive requests to start playing or using an app/game, it can come across as irritating. This has long been a pertinent complaint among the users and Facebook is yet to quell this menace.
The company CEO Mark Zuckerberg who was answering questions at the Delhi Townhall event today has mentioned that the company will be doing something about this soon. While he failed to divulge information on what exactly will be done to get rid of this, it’s good to know that the CEO is acknowledging this as a concern for the customers.
He said “This is why townhall is so great. Our team is working with developers to come up with a solution to stop Candy crush requests. We are doing it!”
Apps like Candy Crush, Farmville etc have millions of daily users out there. And in order to increase the user base, the developers tend to force players into sending invites to their friends, usually in return for perks like coins or other virtual currency. Perhaps Facebook can block this altogether so requests cannot be sent to the users. The details are still pretty hazy, so we’ll wait for further clarification from Facebook before jumping to conclusions.
