The percentage of ESP sent mail vs all mail seen in the spamtraps is back to normal levels, 1.5% this month. Social networks account for 3.9% of all mail, of which nearly 93% is Facebook. Facebook is “only” sending 2.5 times as much mail as all tracked ESPs combined, which would be a reduction of 30%… if it wasn’t the case that ESPs were sending more mail than last month, and Facebook was simply keeping up their old levels.

I’m going to leave out the social networking bits. It’s too depressing. Facebook is spewing out more than all ESPs combined, and it’s all about getting people to give them access to the address books. Twitter is spamming nearly 30% more than the top ESP.
