Many times we as individuals find ourselves in trouble with social media. And although not done on purpose receive the much dreaded warning from Facebook or Twitter that I am spamming. Spamming on social media is easy to do without even knowing it. Facebook, for example, offers a great way to find friends using an algorithm to show mutual friends. I like having friends on Facebook, lots of them to be exact, but have gotten in trouble because I’ve sent out too many friend requests.
The user on the other end rejects my request and therefore I am marked as a spammer.
Here is a handy guide to know when and what happens in the various social media sites and what they consider spamming.
