I received a Spam message through Friendster today and was very upset because it was the first Spam I have seen there. I first questioned why one of my contacts would ‘invite’ a spammer into their network knowing fair well the effects would ripple out at least three degrees. But after further examination I found that the spammer had no connection to me at all … which made me beg the question if the spammers are paying network services for the privilege to spam outside of their personal sphere of influence. Unique business model that I hoped I’d never see. I write more about this over at Community Mobilization.
