    Yes there is, but cant find the name of the application in the moment, look around in "cause" pages, there are plenty of them that using some app for track who referred the most people to the page

    I made an application that tracks referrals of the application. I'm not too sure if it is possible within a fan page though as I don't think you are allowed to grab the user's ID.

    You could tell the to print screen their page when they've invited their friends and upload it to the fan page. Of course, they would need to print screen the bit where they "select all friends" or if they select a certain amount of friends. AND, you may want them to print screen the box that says something like "your invitations have been sent", although if someone has gone to the trouble to select all their friends (javascript?) and print screen, i think they will have invited :)

    But its harder work than just clicking invite and then you tracking the amount of invites they've sent. But i don't think there is a way :)

    Are you doing this on an external site or app? In either case, have them use the multi-friend adder and in the code the action attribute should be a URL back to your site/application - just add a GET variable to the end of it using the invite sender's UID as the value. Then after each person that claims the invite, you can capture the UID and store it in a DB table.

    Also one problem, this is incentivized invites, if your app grows too big, it will be noticed and shut down for violating TOS

    Good idea, but you can get the ban hammer for too many invites being sent, be careful.
