One of the biggest problems due to the proliferation of social networking is the spam invites you receive from perfect strangers to the various social networking websites. I am extremely careful online, but I still face this deluge of unwanted mails. The worst culprits are:
Facebook – “Check out my photos” – who wants to waste time looking at photos of perfect strangers ?
SiliconIndia – Invites from an assortment of girls with faces pancaked with make up. They use email ids which I do not publish anywhere online, I wonder how they get the email ids.
Jhoos – XXX wants to be your friend
When you are in college or have just started working, you have plenty of time and nothing much to do , you can afford to waste time on social networking and making “friends” with perfect strangers. As you grow older, you have seen enough of human nature to make an effort to make friends. You value your time and there is so much you want to do, why waste time socializing, especially with people with whom you have nothing in common.
