It's this kind of thing that reminds us all of the privacy issue of uploading your photos onto someone else's servers.

The social network is emailing users old photos of themselves in hopes of enticing them to return to Myspace. The emails include one or two old photos and a line that reads, "The good, the rad and the what were you thinking..." along with a link that takes users to their profile.

Intrigued that just a few of the top dogs responded to this topic... Can it be that privacy just isn't that big a deal for the rank and file? Really?

Sad thing is that myspace is so forgotten that even the few offended will probably give them a pass for sending emails with "forgotten" images. And (to chuckle further) how many of those folks are in the EU and will send a "right to be forgotten" reply? :)

ah, either my myspace registered email is no longer in use or it went straight into spam! as i didn't get one.

i'd agree on the privacy thing ... it's kinda creepy
