Facebook, a new feature to control who has displayed an invitation

After WhatsApp Messenger and also for the social network are receiving a check to indicate whether or not the reading of an event. The excuses are no longer needed: the guest will have to confirm or decline.


“DID YOU SEE THE CALL?” This question can no longer lie: Facebook would be testing a new feature to allow those who have created an event to know for sure if the invitee has displayed or not.

It is not the first time that the social network offers such functions. In the last years of Messenger you can know exactly what time the party has read a message or did not do.

Same thing on WhatsApp where a tick indicates the message is sent to the server, double check the receipt by the recipient, and then the double blue check reading the message. What I had not anticipated Fb is possible to control stress that this may cause to users. Although not at all.


Facebook says that the new feature facilitates those organizing an event forgoing the predicament of having to call or contact with separately who did not respond to the invitation, neither confirming nor declining. But not everyone agrees.


The journalist Daniel Victor on The Daily Dot defines novelty as “the last attempt to Facebook to ruin friendships.” In fact, the instrument cancels the plausibility of any type of excuse, leaving only one option: to tell the truth.

The justifications social or faces stunned can no longer exist. For those who just can not tolerate the idea of being controlled in their actions, there will certainly be a way to disable the notification mechanism .

But, as for the other systems of social communication, it will be mostly browser extensions or special app that often people do not want or do not know how to install. At that point we can only alternative: to confirm or not his participation in an event. According to the website The Daily Dot Facebook soon extend this type of notifications of reading to other cases, such as friend requests or quotes in the post.

Every time Facebook has proposed such services users’ complaints came on time: concern the right to pretend not to have read something or to answer when they want.
