    No one wants to go BBM.com to pull invites...BBM on you mobile phone should connect to your Facebook, Linked in, email, Twitter, contact information and suggest you friends to invite.
    One reason whatsapp was so successful is that it does all work for you...I was surprised when my contacts automatically became my whatsapp contact without me have to do anything...
    BlackBerry make it easier not difficult to add BBM contacts..again inspite of how great BBM and BB10 is I remain very spectacle about use of common sense at Waterloo .

    And on the other side, people were complaining that Whatsapp went ahead and added everyone to their contact list when they didn't want it to.

    So some people like it, some don't. I like being able to control who I have as a contact.
    Having the option to link those other accounts such as Facebook etc would be nice agree, but only as an option if you choose to.

    BBM should do a better job at this.

    I don't mind going to bbm.com, it's not that much more work. That way I can pick and choose who I want as the other poster said people complained about all the info Whatsapp took.

    Go to contacts> swipe from left to right> select BBM contacts > look on the top of the screen. You will see a suggested contacts option. Try that

    That gives very few Facebook contacts may be 5% of the total.
