When Strangers Want to Be Friends

Share

Dear SPLAT,

What are SPLAT’s recommendations for responding to strangers
who want to be my “Friend”?

After signing up for the Library 2.0 group on WetPaint, I
started getting messages from people I don’t know. They’re definitely an improvement over the
folks who contacted me through myspace.com, but I’m still concerned. Some of these wannabe “Friends” have very
little information in their profiles.
On the other hand, how problematic could they be, if they’re in the
Library 2.0 group?

What are the SPLAT guidelines responding to potential “Friends”?
