Instant Messaging Spam

Ah, as they say, just when you thought it was safe. they come up with spam for your instant messaging, according to an article in the Feb 6th issue of Silicon Valley Biz Ink. For those who don’t have a subscritpion, whe this article said was that if you think you can avoid spam by only using IM to communicate, then you may be in for a rude shock. Apparently there are a lot of businesses out there just waiting for the “spim” to start coming in, so they can stop it.

*sigh*

And I will probably have to learn to create it too, just as I have learned to create “e-blasts” as one of my clients calls them. Oh no, they are only sent to opt in lists, so it isn’t spam then, is it.

:(
