What is this please?

FB already tells you when it's someone's birthday does it not?

I keep getting invites hmm

I keep getting these invites too and was wondering the same

Reckon there's much traffic round here?

I'm doubtful we'll find out....

It's an app that collects birthdays - called MyCalendar - rather than Facebook itself. It imports your friends' birthdays from FB and your phone. You can get it on the iTunes Store.

One of your friends (or in my case my MIL) has downloaded the app and then it pretty much automatically asks your friends to do the same if you give it permission to.

So unless you really want another birthday calendar app on your phone, just ignore it.

It's just an app

Oh right....

Can I stop the invites?

I've blocked them.

Thanks smile

It's so annoying. I have two friends who (automatically I think) keep asking. I keep ignoring but would prefer to be able to delete the request.

You can, I've just found out.

Click "app requests" on you newsfeed page (top right)

Then I think it's cancel request or something (you'll see an X)

Through that you can block the app

Right. I've done that with the one that's there. The other friend must be manually repeating the request as she isn't up there for some reason.
