Pete forwarded us an email from the social networking site Classmates, which apparently is attempting to stay relevant by spreading your information around the internet to sites people actually visit. At least users can opt out.
Quoting the email:
To make it easier for old friends—including you!—to reunite, we’re coming up with ways to let more people use Classmates from around the Internet without having to visit Classmates.com.
To do that, we’re about to start making your public Classmates content available to people using a variety of sites and devices, including Facebook and the iPhone. This content can include your name, photos, community affiliations, and more.
Look for our new Facebook app: We’re about to release a Facebook application that lets people curious about their old friends and schoolmates explore our class lists and member activity. If you’re on Facebook, we hope you check it out once it’s available.
If you’re one of the untold masses who signed up for Classmates on a lark several years ago only to abandon it, what’s your take on the new policy?
