I see the commercial use of Social Media sites as the modern day pop-up. I use Twitter, but don't follow anyone that wants to push ads in my face. I use Facebook to stay in touch with family and friends. I would never consider hijacking it for commercial gain and I block or stop following anyone that tries to use it to sell me their wares. If I want updates on a company's products or services, I bookmark them in my browser or sign up for their newsletter. My social stuff is private and I can do without the intrusion. I'm sure I'm not alone.
