Spam is, unfortunately, a part of Twitter, e-mail and other socially connected tools of the 21st century that is unavoidable, as outlined in the ‘Evolution of Spam’ graph. The question really isn’t if, but when? And in what way will the obnoxious spam get us and be about? What the Evolution of Spam infograph outlines is a hilariously sarcastic history of the obnoxious practice and some useful tips for not coming across like a spammer yourself.

Alleging that spam dates all the way back to pre-historic times and the caveman dwellings were dotted with the obnoxious messaging, the imaginative graph takes spam to the next level. Later, the beloved British comedy Monty Python makes an appearance with a Monty parody spam. Then to cap it all off with a flourish is the 21st century spam everyone knows and hates -- the kind that is sent to your phone, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, etc.

Finally, some good words of advice for advertisers are laid out in an effort to help quash the practice of spam. Stats for Obnoxious JunkMail Graphs Trending: Older & Chilly
