I'm getting really tired of this "friend" thing of Web 2.0. It's not all that friendly.
I got an invitation from YouTube to friend a 19 year old who appears to be into cars. Why me? He is also blasting me with emails to view each of his videos. In checking his profile it looks like he's annoyed a lot of people with his "spam" invitations. I can't figure out what brought him into my sphere of influence. I currently only have four videos on Youtube, none having anything to do with cars nor of interest to 19 year olds as far as I can tell. None have very many views. What's the point of inviting total strangers to view your videos? Do you get money for high hit rates?
