If I’m already “connected” to you, I obviously don’t need to invite you to join a website to seal the deal.
While the world of social media is a boon for anyone who wants to know what’s going on outside their four walls, there are a few “hidden dangers” to the new connectivity.
In this instance, I was invited by a Facebook friend to join the website Twoo. I decided to accept the invitation, and the next thing I know, the website sent out an email to everyone in my email address book inviting them to join.
Even people I despise (and who despise me back) probably got an invitation.
Note to Biscayne Park Commissioner Fred Jonas: I do NOT want to connect with you.
Not on Facebook.
Not on Twitter.
Not on Twoo.
Not in REAL LIFE!
Speaking of Fred Jonas, he got one of those invitations and promptly sent me the following email:
Wow! I’m “dangerous!” I had no idea LOL!
Nevertheless, I replied:
That was when I was first alerted that there was a problem.
I’ve received phone calls and emails since this morning asking me, “What’s up with that?”
I hope this clears things up. If you get one of those invitations, please disregard. (I already deleted that account anyway.)
Oh, and Fred, by the way:
