Yesterday I received a Facebook request from an investor to try an app, Syn.Syn is an iPhone app that automatically updates contact information in your phone based on your friends’ Facebook data. 

When I inquired about Syn, the investor replied:

“It’s some bullsh*t app I got spammed on and then when I signed up it spammed all my friends. Total bs.”

Note to startups: don’t spam investors. It doesn’t go over well.

synSyn could be a cool app, but it spams anyone who signs up.
