11 Suggestions for (Social) Networking Heaven – 2
2) Adding appropriate apps
I enjoy networking on facebook and communicating, however, I don’t want to be bitten by a vampire nor do I have time to play scrabulous. And to be asked to install these apps on an ongoing basis is a little bothersome. In the rush of everyone and their brother to build apps, sometimes, I just don’t have the time to be bitten and super poked!
So, how do we delineate apps that are gaming apps and say… don’t allow invitations to gaming apps to be delivered to me? Can’t the apps have categories and I express my interest in categories of apps to handle some of that for me as sort of a prefilter?
Kill App Spam
Or, we have a way to filter e-mail spam that if someone has sent it to more than a certain number of people, don’t deliver it to me. Can’t we say, “If someone has sent the app to more than 5 people, I DON’T WANT IT!!!”
It’s App spam. Keep the spam in the can! But newcomers can’t help it when they don’t know better! (I mean, how can you tell a newcomer has e-mail, they start sending hundreds of forwards that they probably never read! It is the same with newbies in facebook.)
