Annoying Social Media SPAM

This isn't a new trends, but certainly it is getting more and more annoying and prominent to be contacted in Facebook of Google Hangouts chat by somebody that try to offer your something.

If I can recall, I wrote an article regarding SPAM very recently, though compared to today, levels of SPAM were almost nothing.

SPAM on Facebook and Google Plus

And then there was chat!

Facebook Chat SPAMIt is not a JOKE, since the beginning of 2014, I got contacted by the “dream team” - Michal Jordan from India, Kobe Bryant from Pakistan and Charles Barkley from Yemen.

All of them are SEO gurus with few months of experience or web developers that have HTML2.1 websites.

The old song!

thr, pls like this page ….”

No thanks! SPAM reported!

Google Hangouts Chat SPAMEvery single day there are at least 20 request of people to join WebmaisterPro group on Facebook, but the interesting part is that profiles are either created a week ago or doesn't display any personal information or photographs excepts “company” website link and company logo as avatar.

Though, it is stated clearly that group doesn't want Facebook page link exchanges, on daily basis one new member get banned, simply because haven't learned to read, yet!
I wish, I've made a snapshot of this. It happened yesterday, I was tagged in a photograph together with 2446 other people on Facebook!

Twitter and LinkedIn SPAM

Facebook Group TermsNot as much as Facebook and GooglePlus, but definitely there are many times messages in both. The usual - “Can you endorse me?”. Sorry ladies and gentlemen, I have never work with LinkedIn Messages SPAMyou so I can't endorse you, simply because I don't know your skills. Probably you don't have any since, you ask a complete stranger to do that!

On Twitter, the usual – “like my page”. I might like it, if I haven't received a direct message from somebody that I don't know and I am not interested in “herbs” by the way.



It seems that you lack common sense or your software is complete junk. SPAM-ing real people will NOT work, we have enough common sense. We will NOT buy products and services from SPAM-ers!

Don't leave your daytime job!
