Over the long weekend I received a couple of invites to a new social networking site. Guess what? It’s a fake, and if you join it can spam your contacts! The site is called Quechup. Don’t accept the invites! Read more here. And if I inadvertently spammed anybody, my apologies! I don’t think I did, but better safe than sorry, apology-wise.
The moral of the story: always check out the social network site’s URL to make sure it’s legit BEFORE you click on an email invite (that’s basic smart email policy, but with Web 2.0 stuff, I for one have gotten lazy).
