The spamification of Facebook extends beyond professional solicitations to unwanted emails created by friends who want you to participate in their activities. While this is well-intended, it just shows that Facebook with its many features has also created many ways to spam your buddies.
Here are five common forms of Facebook spam:
1. Group additions
There’s nothing worse than getting added to a busy Facebook Group and suddenly having dozens—even hundreds—of emails land in your in box. Worse, Facebook does not allow you to control notifications before getting added to a group. So you can only stop the spam after the fact. Ugh.
2. Event invites
Yup, a marketer’s favorite, one that most of us are guilty of. But this feature has become meaningless to many power users because they receive so many unwanted event invites. Why bother?
3. Tagged with … spam!
