A while back we checked out the Spacelocker an online “meeting place”. Its our job here at Out-Smarts to keep a head of new technologies and check new tools out however whimsical they are.
Today Spacelocker or someone pretending to be Spacelocker spammed us and our contacts. Our gmail was hacked and those in our address book got an email inviting them to join Spacelocker. I want to make it very clear that we did not send out invites to anyone and on the contrary we discourage you from signing up for Spacelocker. Any company that is willing to spam its users to promote itself is beyond contempt.
Here’s a link to Gmail support explaining the situation. Please do not sign up for Spacelocker or you risk the same happening.
This is a product aimed at youngsters and I encourage all parents, teachers and caregivers to take note as well – if they can’t be trusted with email then how can they be trusted with our children’s profiles?
If you received the email from Spacelocker, please accept our profuse apologies. It didn’t come from us. We don’t do Spam.
