people harvesting your myspace friends

i was wondering if anyone gets annoyed when someone goes through your friends on a social network and just starts inviting all of them.

i've heard it called "friend harvesting"

an old friend i've known for years pissed me off recently by doing this and he can't figure out why i'm pissed. it just bugs me. my friends are not there for him to exploit for his business purposes.

maybe i'm just nuts, who knows.

Myspace is public. Your list of friends is public, right? Anyone putting anything up there should be ready for anything.



Oh, and by the way, this is funny:

I don't really see anything wrong with just sending a friend request but I do find it to be in bad taste to do a massive comment thing on all your friend's friends' lists promoting your EP or whatever.

My pet peeve is bands who post 50 bulletins in a single day. You know, if I don't like your band enough to go see a show, browbeating me about it isn't going to help. It'll just get you deleted.

Well... isn't that the entire purpose and draw of myspace? Networking with friends of friends is the name of the game. If you don't want to play, then don't. It's not like your friends have to add them if they don't want to. FYI, I've met TONS of cool mother****ers that I would have NEVER met if it weren't for myspace.
