SNAM - Too much of a good thing?

16 Mar 2004|Added Value

I discovered a new word today, SNAM, which refers to email networking spam. (thanks to Geoffrey Gonzalez whose blog referenced the term and got me investigating). Each time I’m invited to join or add someone (frequently unknown to me) to my Linkedin network, or asked to update my contact information via Plaxo (again, usually by someone I barely know) I wonder how far my online social network extends. And how useful it really is. I’m still intrigued and excited by the possibilities of online social networking. But I’m hoping to see more of the benefits before the noise dampens my enthusiasm.
