I am currently in Dallas doing some training, and on my lunch break I decided to check out my Facebook profile and see what’s new.
Sitting in my “Requests” area are five group invitations… invitations to things like “if X many people join this group, I’ll do Y”. It is a very definite reminder of spam emails like “if you don’t send this email to X many people, Y will happen!!”.
The worst part about this is that only friends can invite you, so these are the people that I know, or once knew. In fact, mostly it’s people who I’m not really close to anymore. I guess the people who I’m closest with know about my lack of patience with such types of spam.
So, look out Facebook users. The next generation of spam – the “Social Spam” if you will – is upon us and growing.
