Don’t do what I did – YouTube Auto-share + Facebook Import = Tweet Spam

Youtube_sharing

Well, sorry to all the Tweeple and Facebook followers.  YouTube Auto-Share is a pretty cool feature to share ratings and uploads automatically.  What I didn't realize is that by default it was sharing my subscriptions.  Combine that with the import of Facebook Friends and you've got a recipe for MAJOR Twitter spam.

Its too late for me and I apologize profusely.  Best thing I can do is explain what happen and advise others to change the default.  This picture shows where to change the Auto-Share feature setting so that you don't accidently create Tweet SPAM through YouTube Auto-Share.

Sorry if you had to endure my bone-headed move!
