The New Word For Spam - Bacon

There's a new classification of annoyance in your email box and it's called (I'm not making this up) "Bacon." Spam is unsolicited, unwanted email from an unknown sender that's trying to get you to buy something or scam you out of something. Bacon is legitimate email sent from legitimate senders that's trying to get you to buy something (you probably even asked for at some point).

It's also turning into a huge business and much more profitable than Spam. As the infographic below shows, once a marketer has you on their list, it's unlikely that you'll try to, or be able to get off. Everything you need to know about Bacon can be found below.
