Social Spam Surging

Spammers are frantically spreading their muck across the social media networks, according to a study by Nextgate.
Spam increased by more than 350% on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn during the first six months of 2013.
Facebook and YouTube host considerably more spam than the other social networks, according to the study.
We're immune to the spam that floods our email in-boxes, but social spam is insidious, because it's much more difficult to detect.
And there's another reason spammers love it.
Where spam delivered as an email reaches one victim at the time, spam delivered as a post on a social media network can reach thousands.
