    If an individual was to scrape email addresses from websites, and import them in facebook and send each email address a facebook invite via facebook, is that considered spamming? My thought is no, because you are not sending any emails directly, you are sending a "friends request" through facebook.

    also on another level, would facebook allow this?

    Lets refine it a little. Lets say I have a female go on craigslist. She goes to the dating section, in the "males looking for females" section. She replies to their ads, they reply back, obviously she would then have their personal email. Multiply this times 50,100,1000, 10000000000000000000000. Then she imports her address book with all her new contacts in facebook, facebook would then send a friends request to her men she intially contacted from craigslist. is this spamming??
