You Grumpy Old Blogger!
17 October 2007
Is it me, or is all this social media making me grumpy?
Today I’ve had someone who sent me a message on Facebook in order to try and sell their creative design services as well as a researcher from one of the UK media databases wanting to list me as a blogger in their database so that PRs can spam me.
I think it’s going to take an industry-wide effort to stamp out bad practice in blogger relations, rather than a single vendor adding bloggers to their databases. I’m waiting to hear what they intend to do to any of their customers who ignore bloggers’ preferences. I’d bet they won’t get their accounts cancelled.
