True. It’s another social network that everyone SHOULD be aware of. It’s one of those “sponge” ones that creates an identity for you whether you want it or not and collect “news” that may or may not be about you, may or may not be correct, or “flattering”. Unlike Jigsaw that does the same thing, SPOCK allows you to claim the identity and “fix up” what’s there. It might be advisable to “claim” what’s yours before someone else does. I’m still trying to understand the nuances of the social networking space, but I thought that I should make some folks aware of its existence. I’ve blogged about it. Forewarned is fore armed. Or is that “four armed”. One more thing that needs looking at.

p.s., there are records there for millions of people who have no idea that they are there. ?:-{
