How to control who can send you friend invites on Facebook

If you are one of those people who do not want any and everyone to send you invites. FB has a provision for you. The idea is that you allow only friends of friends to invite you. The idea is that for a person to invite you they would already need to be associated with a friend of yours. This way you control who can contact you. So, a perfect stranger will be unable to send you an invite. There are many people who need this and the reasons are varied. Maybe they look like some celebrity or have the same name. maybe a pretty face and the reasons go on and on and there are many people that just seem to get get too many invites from perfect strangers. The best way to control this is to allow only friends of friends to invite you. You may however loose on the old friend who will find it all the more difficult to add you as a friend.
