Facebook Spam Response

I get spam friend requests on a daily basis. It’s to the point that I see a friend request and think, “great, what kind of spam do I have now.” Yes, spammers are more interested in being my friend than my actual friends are.

If you think that sounds sad, then consider that at least I don’t accept the spam requests just to make it look like I have more friends. It’s hard to believe how many people actually do that. What’s the word for that? Oh, yeah: lame.

Of course, there’s always the possibility that some people don’t know how to spot a scam friend request.

Here are a few hints to help you identify spam requests that you should ignore.

1. You don’t know the person.

2. The profile contains one picture, and it’s as sexually explicit as Fb will allow.

3. The profile belongs to an attractive woman and all of her friends are lonely men.

4. You don’t know the person.

I usually just ignore spam friend requests. Some people, however, have become a little more vigilant about calling out spammers. If you  feel up to the challenge, why not respond to the request with a witty email. I did once accept a request, write a wall post, and then unfriend the spammer. That was kind of fun.
