There is an outfit called Plaxo, that apparently is trying to be Facebook. But somehow they are getting priveleged information. I have a friend whom I correspond with frequently, and she got an invitation to be my 'friend' on Plaxo, and I got an invitation supposedly from her to be her friend. When you click on the link in the email invitation, Plaxo asks you for a bunch of nosy information you don't particularly want to share with an outfit you've never heard of. Neither of us has ever joined Plaxo or told them that we are friends. Wierd.
