What is spam?

Is spam the same? Probably this word is already familiar to every PC user and Internet citizen. Indeed, spam is everywhere, there’s nowhere to go from it, it’s everywhere. Probably the biggest manifestation of spam is in the field of email. After all, thousands of spam emails advertising various goods and services come to the email addresses of millions of users every day. I think at this stage it is already becoming clear what spam is, because each of us often encounters it every day on the Internet. But still, summarize and give an accurate, not vague definition of the word spam, because if you think so, then spam can be considered any obsessive advertising in any of its manifestations, but this is far from the case.

Spam is nothing more than the usual distribution of various advertisements (both commercial and any other) in the form of emails, messages or in any other digital form, to people who do not want to receive these advertising offers.

Thus, the line between regular mailing and spam is very thin and invisible. Those. you can subscribe to some kind of electronic mailing of letters, and after a while you will lose all desire to open, read and generally receive these letters for some reason. In this case, this newsletter turns into regular spam, of which there are many on the network. As a rule, high-quality conscientious services of mass mailing of messages and emails in each such message at the end give links so that you can unsubscribe from these notifications at any time. Annoying advertising mailings, as a rule, do not offer such opportunities at all, which undoubtedly annoys users more and more over time.

Today, absolutely all popular email services provide protection and the necessary functionality to protect their users from spam mailings. Users of very high-quality email services generally do not encounter such problems due to perfection, filtering letters, and algorithms. Often they even encounter the opposite phenomenon when the letters that the user is waiting for and wants to receive do not reach him because of all the same filters. Typically, such letters fall into a folder called spam, from where they can be easily extracted and tell the robot that these letters are not spam, as he defined at first glance.

Currently, few users experience spam problems due to advanced technologies. But earlier, at the dawn of the development of the Internet in the world, every first user faced such a problem. Fortunately now, it’s almost a thing of the past.

Why do people send spam if nobody needs it?
Well, everything is extremely simple, of course, because of the money. The fact is that although spam emails are not wanted by people and often cause only anger, there is still a percentage of conversion from such mailings, and mailings themselves are very cheap. It is for this reason that spam as a phenomenon continues to exist, although it is already not so much distinguished as before.

How to protect yourself from spam?
Probably the best protection against spam is the use of high-quality email service and not disclosure to everyone of their email inbox. Those. you should not write your mailbox address everywhere. in this case, he will undoubtedly fall into the so-called spam mailing lists and will be subjected to daily advertising attacks. In general, due to such a policy, many people use 2 e-mail boxes, one public (usually spam comes to it), and the second personal, for business correspondence and personal letters.

Thus, the line between regular mailing and spam is very thin and invisible. Those. you can subscribe to some kind of electronic mailing of letters, and after a while you will lose all desire to open, read and generally receive these letters for some reason. In this case, this newsletter turns into regular spam, of which there are many on the network. As a rule, high-quality conscientious services of mass mailing of messages and emails in each such message at the end give links so that you can unsubscribe from these notifications at any time. Annoying advertising mailings, as a rule, do not offer such opportunities at all, which undoubtedly annoys users more and more over time.
