Topics: about weird notification on my desktop?
TL;DR Twoo bought all of the users from Q&A site spring.me (formerly Formspring) and is now marketing them to each other as questionable dating matches without ever asking for their permission to do so.
Then it became even weirder, most of my notifications from spring.me stopped being questions from people, whom I can only assume were fake, but they became “Someone Smiled at you on Spring. me !” You can probably guess, me being male, all these notifications were supposedly from women. For a Q&A site, why there was ever a need to smile at random users, I didn’t know.
It’s worth noting that I hadn’t actually realised spring.me was Formspring. Indeed, I’ve checked through my emails and there was never any announcement to me that the name had changed, so initially, I hadn’t realised who Twoo were or where they could have got my details from.
