Facebook - The Invite button is missing!


You are unable to invite a friend on Facebook, the Invite button is missing! Only the Send message button is available.


This is due to privacy settings of your friend. The solutions are:
  • Ask the person to invite you: you will need to contact him and request an invitation.
  • Ask him to temporarily change his privacy settings as follows:
    • Click on Settings > Privacy.
    • Next to "Who can send you friend requests?" select "Everyone" .
