Don't Get Caught - Canada Anti-Spam Legislation and LinkedIn | Social Media for Photographers | Scoop.it

Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com's insight:

"The report calls out Facebook's Graph Search as one of the newest spam tools for social because it allows users to precisely query a specific target audience. Spammers set parameters such as age, location, likes, interests and brands followed. Aside from being seen by the indented person and friends, all connected friends of friends also see the message. If the recipient's content is public, social spam reaches an even wider audience. Some 40% of social media accounts have been used to cast a wide net."

  • Follow up!


One I would add is: Have your emails proofread. 


To me, this article serves as a reminder that there are human beings at the other end of the "line". We must treat them as such.
