Who is the biggest social spam offender?

Archeologists say you can tell a lot about a culture from it’s trash, so what does the information in this post say bout various social networks? Last April I took a week off and for 14 hours a day I analyzed many many… MANY of the top social networks for RoyalAnts. This included taking screen shots for our developers, writing up analysis and possible strategies for each, digging up funding and company info for each, and basically this sucked.

It was fun to play with so much stuff, but after about 20 I never wanted to see another sign up form, and after 30 I never wanted to use a computer again. But that’s not why I’m writing this post, no no no my friends I am writing this post A) because it’s easy and I don’t have a lot of time with the looming wedding, B) I think this information is very interesting.

Since the beginning of April I haven’t touched any of the accounts I made, but I did create filters to catch the random email that was generated by these various accounts, and after 6 months what is the result? Who is the bigest offender of sending unsolicited email? Who will you see the most crap come from? Well just read on below and find out.

In regards to my experiences doing this I have a couple of things I will tell you right now.

  1. Tagged has the worst, most abysmal, hellish sign up process of any site I have ever been to and I don’t know how they have the members they have.
  2. Multiply notifications come way way way way too often.
  3. I still flinch when I see a sign up form

    This is awesome research. As I write the notification/email system for RoyalAnts, this info will help determine what is the right amount, and the right type of emails to send to people, because I’ve been struggling with what to do.

    Glad I could provide that info. When I get back from San Diego and break it all down I think that will help as well, then we can gauge the frequency of certain type of email generated by these sites.

    This is a great post and hope these companies get a chance to read it so that they can change their ways. Its good to see Plaxo has limited their emails; they used to be the most spammy service I have ever used. I would love to see a similiar post covering services that are used by spammers. For example, i get tons of spammy advertisements through Bebo, MySpace and Skype.

    i dont think that badoo needs to be in that list

      Why not? Please explain why I should exclude Badoo from that list. I'm not singling Badoo out, I'm not making fun of it, I'm simply putting up some truthful information based on the default settings.
