Chris Brogan wrote about something similar just the other day - seems he'd received a blind pitch for some book in his Facebook messages, which prompted his post, "Facebook is NOT for Blind Email Marketing." I don't know who, exactly, to call out on this one, but I'm pretty sure it's not my Facebook friend.
I received this message on my wall at about 5:30 this morning. Checking further I find that she "wrote" on 13 other walls at about the same time. Of those who are also my friends, I could see that the pitch is exactly the same, as I'm sure it was for everyone.
I have met this person a few times, she knows people I know; in fact, she now works for my former employer. But just like I doubt we'd ever go shopping together - anywhere - I doubt she authored or sent this ad.
So what's up with this, Facebook?
