Merge with Social networking spam[edit]

Should this be merged with social networking spam? They seem to cover the same topic. JitteryOwl (talk) 22:06, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

Did a review of both pages, and determined a merge was necessary. Because social spam is the more general topic, which social networking spam is a subset of, I copied over the relavent information from the social networking spam page, that hadn't yet been covered, and merged them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jbabiarz (talkcontribs) 18:54, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
