Facebook introduces read receipts for events – so your mates WILL know when you’ve not bothered responding

Well thanks a lot, Facebook. Thanks for RUINING OUR LIVES

Facebook is the devil

Oh, it’s awkward, isn’t it, when your sort-of mate from school sends you a Facebook invite for that cross-stitch class she’s running just because you bumped into her at Morrisons last week. Because normally you can just ignore it, can’t you, and move house and hope to never see her again.

NOT ANY MORE. As part of Facebook’s relentless campaign to take over our entire lives (see the new ‘dislike’ button it’s introduced, too), it’s now bringing in read receipts for people who set up events.


You’re familiar with read receipts, right? They’re the things your boss insists on slapping over every email, so you can’t sneak past him pretending you haven’t seen his stern lecture about answering the phone properly. AND NOW THEY’RE GOING TO BE ON FACEBOOK EVENTS.

It’s basically the end of our social life as we know it. Because, y’know, now we’re all going to have to follow through with whatever option we clicked on Facebook.

Think of all the disruption if everyone who’s invited to the next housewarming actually turns up. It’ll be madness! There’ll be rioting in the streets, and the police won’t be able to do anything because they’ll all be at that D&B night they got invited to three months ago.

“We’re piloting the ability for private event hosts and guests to know whether their friends they invited have seen the event,” a Facebook spokesperson told the Daily Dot.

No word yet on when read receipts will be added to Facebook friend requests, but that feature can’t be far behind. THE HORROR.
