  1. This is a real eye opener, I just did not know there was so much out there, the question I have, is there not to much, I am not a pessimist, and my experience is that if I get more then on communication a day from one source, I sometime block it, and as a consequence I get nothing from that person anymore, and that person does not even know I did block him/her.
    Just a thought.

    • You are also true of what you are doing.We cant just accept everybody on our network.We have to check the genuineness.Not just about the people sending us requests,but there are many scams going around.So we never want to share our personal info with people who are complete strangers to us.
      Just today morning I read about the COca-cola scam that hits facebook.One would be so tempted to know the stuff and may click the link for further info,which would ask for personal details to be shared.And there comes the scam.
