New Facebook Application Creating Massive Volumes Of Photo Spam

The photo tagging phenomenon has officially jumped the shark on Facebook with the All my Friends! application which lets you instantly tag your friends in pre-made images. It’s not exactly a new concept but for some reason this iteration of the application has been extremely successful having attracted over 5 million users so far and growing daily.

The application could actually be a useful service but the way that ads are currently posted within the application makes us think that this app was simply developed to attract millions of users and generate a quick buck. I’ve written about these multi-user photos that are meant for tagging friends in the past but this application appears to be spreading without providing much value. Most of the people that I’ve seen tagged in images are from users with loose ties to the originator of the image.
