The perils of Web 2.0

Social media is a fairly big part of my life.

I’m a member of various social networks, such as last.fm, Facebook, LinkedIn and Plaxo to name but four and am connected to a variety of friends, business contacts and other people I’ve only ever met online.

But, and here’s a big but, I don’t connect with anyone I don’t vet or know first.

Thus, it was a minor irritation that I got at least three separate invites on different social networks over the weekend from someone I didn’t know called, get this, Joe Respondto.

How ridiculous is that? What a pitiful attempt at spam – calling yourself Respondto! It’s not even clever…

It also seems as if I’m not the only person who’s been getting similar invitations.

So, for those of you out there who have been silly enough to accept this person as a friend, make sure ‘he’ can’t get hold of any important, or sensitive information!
