As a parody of [[wp:Facebook|Facebook]], Lifeinvader is a largely popular social networking site that was either created, or spiked in popularity, between [[2010]] and [[2013]], as there is no evidence of its existence in [[GTA IV]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City|its episodes]], nor [[GTA Chinatown Wars]], which are set in 2008 and 2009, respectively. It allows its users to post blogs and "stalk" (a take on [[wp:Facebook like button|Facebook's "like"]]) others to receive their posts and updates on their timeline. As of [[2013]], Lifeinvader has reached a billion registered users.
