What is ‘bacn’?
It’s a newly coined word, this bacn. Been reading a lot about it lately and first thought it was a new Web 2.0 service. Turns out it’s just another fancy word for an email spam that quite isn’t.
Bacn (pronounced as bacon but spelled without the ‘o’) isn’t your typical spam. It’s an alert or email notification you don’t really want but something you don’t flag as real spam.
This could be a forum email notification, new comment notification, update alerts, software update notifications, or some types of newsletters. It’s there in your inbox but you don’t mind them or read them at all. They just pile up on your Inbox and you delete theme without actually reading each one.
So, how much bacn do you get?
