Dealing With Spam On Facebook

November 15, 2007

‘Sweetheart, the last time you did this…’ began the message.

Intrigued, I clicked on it and found that some one on Facebook had messaged a number of friends, including me, and I was actually reading a reply.

What the lady was saying, in a very nice way, was that the guy was causing a pain in everyone’s posterior, and that as a result, she was going to delete him from her friends’ list.

And it is a pain, because every time there’s a reply, the whole group receives it.

When people misuse the system, it creates a lot of bad feeling.

This bad feeling can lead to people complaining, and the offender losing their account over it. At the very least, it can lead to the offender losing their friends, as in this case.

It would probably be a good thing for all of us to take the same action I guess, but then if he’s done it before to this group, then he is probably doing it to others as well.

I doubt whether I will see him on Facebook for much longer.

It always makes me wonder why anyone would make the effort to build a network of friends, and then run the risk of destroying it in the hope of making a few quick bucks.

I have written more about this on Coffee With Allan…
