I was just wondering if it's possible to (or if anyone has experience with) add something like Facebook's "Find Friends" tool on my site. (http://www.facebook.com/?sk=ff)
All I'd want it to do would be for a user to be able to enter their login information and see a list of contacts through the social network/email service, select a few, and be able to send a message containing a link to sign up to my site.
Thanks in advance!

Facebook has a defined process for sending out app invites to a group of friends via the apprequests method. When called up people are shown a list of their friends and can search through them selecting one or more names and then generate an invite.
You can get the code at http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/dialogs/requests/
The alternative of course is to allow them to post a message to their wall [they can customize the message and who sees it but it is a broadcast share rather than an app invite].

Hey Ted, I took a look at the requests dialog that Facebook provides - doesn't this only allow users to invite friends on Facebook, rather than other networks such as Skype, email, etc.? Nevertheless, it'll probably be very useful for my site Thanks!

Anyone know anything about this? I've done quite a bit of research but I can't find anything. :/
