    BBM's method of adding contacts is too cumbersome for most people - it requires effort and is therefore an impedement to user growth.

    Blackberry needs to add a 'Go Viral' feature to the options menu. Once activated, this would automatically send out invites to all contacts with BBM installed and would simultaneously change your settings to auto-accept invitations. Similar method that Whatsapp uses, with the important distinction that users would have to opt-in.

    What? I don't want BBM invites sent to all my contacts! And I don't want to have to delete all those auto answered ones! And Whatsapp operates on phone numbers. I don't need that info from all my contacts. And who said it's hard to add someone to BBM??
    No no no.

    It is an opt-in feature meaning no change from current method unless you choose. Users would have to switch their BBM to the 'Go Viral' mode.
