When receiving spam I generally try to think of how many people a message is getting to and why someone would do that? In the case of the Mark Zuckerber spam I am at a loss. Here is the deal, if someone like Mark wanted to know if you where an active user on Facebook he could see all of your information including demographics, bio, who’s Facebook pages you look at regularly, who you email, what they email you, and how often your Farmville addiction gets the best of you. So why in the world would he need to send a message like the following one and ask that it be passed around Facebook?
Sorry that I had to send this message. Since Facebook has recently become very popular, has become the many complaints that Facebook has become unacceptably slow. The report shows that the reason is that Facebook has a number of non-active members and, secondly, many new Facebook members. We want to send this message to see whether you’re active members or not. If you’re aktiviinen, can you send this message to at least 15 users. Use the “Copy – Cut and Paste” to show that you are still active. Those who do not send this message within 2 weeks in, will be removed in order to get more space. Send this message to your friends to show me that you are still active, and do not want to be removed.
Even if you where inactive it would be in Mark’s best interest to keep your information and photos locked away on Facebook forever and ever and ever. With you unable to get any of that information back without doing some really tedious copy/pasting.
