there is nothing so hot as a personal invitation

About: Social Software - Viral Vectors

There are three factors to viral user growth. The first factor is invitation and promotion: people who use the service reach out to people they know to spread the word. The second factor is message reception. Reached by invitation and promotion, some percentage of people decide to sign up and become part of the viral pattern. The third and final factor is reproduction: some of those signed up begin to repeat the cycle by inviting and promoting to new people.

That's why some time ago I speculated on producing an invitation e-mail explaining what it was that fbi is!

You don't need no new technology or feaure to give someone an invitiation.  Just invite them in an email, IM, or phone call.  Actually those methods, rather than some automatic invite button, are hotter just because the recipient knows that you went out of your way to send it.

The latest was an invite button, but previous to that I suggested that we have a reasonable & easy to send out email with a standard description of what fbi is. This would be something similar to what you might put on a front page.  The front page is also something that will improve the product.
