Ignoring application requests from specific friends

April 7, 2008ByTom Whitnah
On Friday, we rolled out a feature that allows users to ignore all application requests from specific friends. We've heard from developers and users that they feel certain friends seem to be a large source of unwanted application requests. So with this change we wanted to give users the opportunity to filter out these friends' requests. When these requests are automatically ignored, it will not count as an ignore for the application. We expect this change will increase the overall acceptance rate for requests as well as users' overall expectations of and affinity for requests.
