Have you recently dived into social networking applications?
Now that you are an established member of the community are you finding that your are being followed by undesirables?
A came across this image of Pac-Man being followed by the infamous ghosts on an undisclosed social network and - retro as the pic may be - I really felt like I understood what was running through Pac-Man's mind
I have been tweeting for quite some time now but only just recently joined facebook (as I'm a true believer in telephone calls and human contact) and within 24 hours of joining I received over 75 friend requests - half of which I didn't really want to accept.
The visual image of Pac-Man and his ghost followers made me feel somewhat closer to the iconic 80's arcade game figure... And made me ask the question - is it rude to ignore unwanted friend requests and block unwanted followers?
What are there etiquette guidelines for letting people down gently via social media networks?
And more importantly - should I be offended if someone considers me an "unwanted follower"?
