Yet another crap social network

Just received an exciting message from ("the worlds' largest travel and lifestyle community", WAYN standing for "Where Are You Now"). Apparently no fewer than nine of its members have added me as a friend.

Only problem is that I don't think I know any of the nine members in question. A couple of the names looked familiar but on checking they are fairly common Irish names and the WAYN profiles don't appear to match the people I know.

WAYN is not quite as sinister and crap as Rapleaf, but unless and until some people I actually know start using it and recommending it to me, I'm not touching it. It looks just like Bebo, Hi5 or Myspace, with a little Dopplr added in; but I get all of that and more from Facebook anyway.

Edited to add: Ah, I see someone else has had invites from most of the same people!
