Thread Name: BS: I Dumped Facebook
Subject: RE: BS: I Dumped Facebook
I signed up to facebook, but never used it or even looked at it. After a while they started to bombard me with emails saying "Do you know ...?" and suggesting I should get in touch with this person.
All the people they were urging me to get in touch with had the same name as someone I had emailed once, several years earlier, after buying something from him on ebay. Did they get the name from my email address book?
What concerned me most was that they might be bombarding other people, urging them to get in touch with ME. As I never looked at my facebook I don't know if any of them did. Eventually I deleted my membership and after a few weeks the emails stopped.
