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.
