Never let it be said that Mark Zuckerberg thinks Facebook is perfect. Probably near perfect but Zucks knows there’s certain things about the social network that almost every user can’t stand.

Facebook users voted on the most annoying thing about Facebook and the answer came back loud and clear — Candy Crush invites. Zucks said “got it. They’re dead to me.”

At an event in India this week, Zuckerberg swore to the audience that he would put an end to the scourge of Candy Crush invites once and for all, after the incessant invitations were ranked as users’ greatest annoyance with Facebook in an online poll.

“I sent a message to the person who runs the team in charge of our developer platform, and I said that by the time I do this town hall Q&A, it would be good if we had a solution to this problem,” Zuck revealed. Already, he said, the developers had determined the flaw in the system: “There are some tools — that are kind of outdated — that allow people to send invitations to people who’ve never used a game and don’t play games on Facebook.”

As Facebook engineers had dealt with other problems, the Candy Crush issue was allowed to linger. No longer. “If this is the top thing that people care about,” Zuckerberg said, “we’ll prioritize that and do it. So we’re doing it.”

Next on the list of kills are “people who still play Candy Crush.”
