Vkontakte is back to invite registration

This week the most popular Russian social network Vkontakte has reintroduced the “invite” system of registration for new accounts, which was turned down in 2006. To register on the site one should put a code, received from an inviting friend. Registration remains free of charge. According to the note published in the Site News Blog signed by the head of the social network Pavel Durov, the “invite” registration will remain permanent. The registration restriction could be caused by the fight against accounts, created for social networking spam. Vkontakte is reported to have more than 111 million accounts. The site is visited daily by 23 million people.


An editor's note:


Since the publication of this news article, we have received an overwhelming number of invitation requests. May we kindly advise all those who would love to be invited to ask their friends, not the editorial team of Russia-IC. And no, it's nothing to do with friendship. Simply, here we subscribe to such values as privacy and correct identity. All of us have fallen a victim of a spammer at least once, and the last thing that would occur to us would be to facilitate spamming and encroaching on other people's privacy.


We do kindly ask you not to leave your emails and phone numbers in comments.
