Mobile Spam In Korea Outnumbers Desktop Spam

While mobile spam still isn’t as big a problem in the US, in Korea it’s getting to be overwhelming. A new report says that there’s now more mobile spam than desktop spam. Korean operators are trying to control the spam, but so far, it appears they’re not having very much luck. For those of us in places where mobile spam isn’t really a problem, just remember that Korea has been leading the world in various good uses of mobile technology — and expect this bad use to start becoming a pain elsewhere as well.
