Block Facebook Event Invitiations from Friends

Posted in   Social Media
I'm not what you would call a serious Facebook user, I don't use it every day, probably once or twice a week but mainly to see what friends have been up to rather than to post anything. I have a few friends on Facebook that quite regularly spam me with event invitations that are and never will be of interest to me but I guess for most it is easier to say "send to everyone" than to actually take the time to select friends you actually might think the event is relevant to. I don't necessarily want to remove these friends however I don't want to to keep receiving their spammy event invitations and it's not immediately obvious how to do this on an individual basis so here is how you do it:
  1. Login to your Facebook account.
  2. From the "Account" menu item in the top left, select "Privacy Settings".
  3. Towards the bottom of the page, click "Edit your Lists" under the "Block Lists" header.
  4. Locate the section titled "Block event invitations" and enter the names of your friends that you would like to block invitations from
That's it, all done. According to Facebook "Once you block event invitations from someone, you'll automatically ignore future event requests from that friend".
