What is BBM Pins
Though I have tried to shed a bit of light on this earlier, the BBM Pin is a unique identify for users of the BlackBerry Messaging Service. each user have a unique code called pin which is used to connect other users and add them to your network. It is a form of permission code to allow other users to connect with you or get connected to others, also users have the chance to accept or request or reject it. One challenge is this, it is sometimes difficult to know a requesting users if the name that appears is a nickname, or the image is a random one.
BBM Pin Exchange Network
This is like a social media platform that allows BBM users to add their Blackberry Pins and also look for other users to chat with, their are several reasons people join such platform. This includes for marketing, dating, casual dating, connection, seeking a new friend and of course some users might also be on the platform for the wrong reasons. I strongly believe that members of such network are doing so at their own risk, considering the fact that a random person can contact you, this could lead to good or bad things.
