Treat SPAM in a Simple Way

Have you received messages which seem to be irritating, annoying. In short, they’re unwanted messages?

As I open my Facebook account, I always check friendship, membership and posting requests for I have a page with more than 12,000 members. This page is always flooded with unwanted requests. I find a bit difficult to check all of them for I am the only owner and the admin of the said page. Sometimes, I may approve them when in fact they shouldn’t be.

Recently FB has flagged some persons in my FB page. I am curious to check it why. I am not used to that kind of prompt before. But this time I want to clear it out. As I click that note, it says that they’re suspicious persons waiting for approval. However, they have a trace or a pattern of a spam. I check their profile and I find out that they’re online shop, services, and other related Net business and they want to take advantage of my populated page.

What happens when I approve their request to join my page?

Now, I know what to do with them. FB spam filter facility makes it aware and easy for me to get rid of them right away.

What is a spam as far as Internet is concerned? Spam is “unwanted” form of communication. As what Facebook points it out, it is relaying “bulk messages, excessively posting links or images”.

Blogbourne is not exempted for this kind of malicious mode of communication. In fact, I have already reported some members who are using a link of their business attached to their username. When you click their username, you will be directed to their site. One or two of them were already commenting on my post here.

What we are going to do with them? If they happen to be your friend in FB, unfriend them. Or if you are the admin of your page or site, delete them. If you can’t do that for you are one of the members of the site which they are also, report them to the admin for proper action to be taken.

In so doing, your page, your site is free from such online vexation. You can have the peace of mind for you’re confident and well assured that nothing would do harm in your FB page, in your blog or website. To put it plainly, SPAM it by selecting, planning, analyzing , manipulating things in question for you own benefit.

      Well, if you are extra careful of the things you do on the Internet you could avoid it. Since we are doing things impulsively and we regret later that what we have done is wrong and we have been tricked.

    I don’t accept friend request from people I don’t recognize and when I receive emails that do not mean anything to me I delete them instantly.

      That is because they have nothing to do or they don’t have give an inch to work on it. What is the easiest possible way would they employ, they are going to use it even it is to defrauding their recipients for that matter.

    Before I joined BlogBourne, the comment form asked me for my website url, which it automatically attached to my name. This is common practice across the web and isn’t spam. If someone leaves a link inside the comment, that is spam. Like you, I don’t like spam. I spend hours a day trying to keep it off of my personal blog’s comments. While blogging platforms can catch some of it, most of the time they do not. So far, I have not had problems with Facebook.

      What is naturally linked to your username is not considered a spam. What I mean here, the link is changed to a particular website especially online store site or any product when it is clicked it is directed to the said site. And that a maneuvered spam, I call it.

      I have never checked up on that type of behavior before. Wow. Didn’t think of that. I’ll have to keep a closer eye on my blog comments.

      Better hover it on their username. It will display below at the lower left hand corner of this page the link of the user/member. If it is a company site not a person one, it will probably a spam.

    I either cross or dismiss out most unwanted spam messages that I got. Luckily I don’t get as mush as others. Thanks for the shout.

      That is nice to hear about. It is good you have done it and you have recognized it as a spam. It is too irritating. Isn’t it?
