Yum, Bacn

Homer Simpson would be disapointed of this bacn and spam combo (not PETA friendly) that many may find in their inbox. From the Messaging Times (although this new angle to spam seems to be gaining momentum in the media), we find a new industry term entering our lexicon.
Bacn - The deluge of email that arrives in our inbox as a result of our participation in online communities and other web activities has been allocated a name; ‘Bacn‘. This type of ‘non-spam spam’ includes new friend requests, updates from social networks, newsletter subscriptions, support messages and other automated email that we want to get but nonetheless fill up our inboxes each day.
