Question for Facebook users

You know how when you log in you are immediately taken to a page where you see all the "invites" from your friends? So, I see when someone has thrown a sheep at me, or invited me to become a vampire, or whatever.

Is there any way to get BACK to that page from your profile? What always seems to happen is that, say, I decide to become a vampire, and bite a few people, then I want to go back to that original page and check out the egg that someone sent me, and I never seem to be able to! Is it just me?? Or am I missing some sweet mystery of Facebook?

That's the one thing that I really dislike about Facebook, is that it seems to take control in ways that I don't understand. You get swept off your page into some "do you want to do this and that?" and usually I don't, and then I don't know how to do what I want without losing something else. Does that make any sense at all??

That page lists all the applications you have added, even if you didn't add them to your page. You should be able to click on the link itself to go to the page to "count vampire bites" or whatever. Edit Settings would let you add it to your page if you wanted.

Um, yeah - that's helpful, but still not quite what I meant. What about invites to things that you DON'T belong to? For example, when I log in, I noticed that someone had sent me a tree for Earth day and asked me to send one back. Well, if I don't do that right away, say I check out the egg someone else sent me in another application, it takes me off that page and I can't get back to it without logging out and back in again. At least that's how it seems to me.

Hmmm - If you go to "home" in the upper right, then there should be a box, above the Status Updates box, that lists application invitations. If you have an active one (that you haven't accepted or ignored yet) a link should show up there. There is a link at the top of that box to take you to that page with all the invites you have waiting. (I don't have any so I can't see what it's called)

That's it! Thanks :)

Hmm. That's a good question. You can go to the link directly:


But from within the interface? Still looking myself.

Or as wendymc observes, click on the word "Facebook" in the upper left hand corner or "Home" in the upper right, then click on your requests on the right-hand side again - but that's two steps.

But that's the link I was looking for! Duh - I hadn't realized that the Facebook logo took you somewhere. I just kept clicking on Profile, and that wasn't helpful.

Thanks, both of you!
