the one thing facebook does right- not block your app with a pop-ip to add new friends.

    Don’t use the app and don’t allow them to import your contacts list.

    I’m able to close that to get past the screen. It’s not difficult just look for the exit link

    An effective feedback is to report this emails that suggest you to add connections as spam. Team will find a downtrend in click through and might test to reduce such spam.

    We hate it too to be honest. But I guess the PM has metric to drive and this probably worked

    It always suggests ppl from my old email account to add as connections, some of whom have died or been test/junk emails.
