India is top nation for spam

BBC article.

I can't say I'm particularly surprised to read this. It's only the point that they're using social networks to do it that's news to me.

Most of the spam I have to deal with is from Indian link building companies, who build links by spamming blogs and forums. I'm not into the social networks much so perhaps I've been spared.

It's scary when you get so much emanating from China and India when you consider the % of the world population that they make up. Makes you wonder what the internet will be like another 10 years from now.
