It's not spam, but it's not from a person, and it's in your inbox. Bacn is an automated notification that you know you might get (Facebook addition, alert from an automated process or sensor), and it's clutter in your inbox. Depending on the type of bacn it is, it might even be "important" clutter. Solution: filter it into your Bacn folder.
The temp sensor was set off when the door was accidently propped open. I got bacn from the alarm system AND the temp monitor.

Low-priority email that is somewhere between the spam & personal email that enters your inbox every day. Examples include account alerts, newsletters, payment receipts and twitter requests. Bacn differentiates itself from spam in that it's email that you probably want to receive, but just don't have the time to deal with right now, and it has become an increasing problem in the age of web 2.0 & online social networking.

The term was coined by folks at the PodCamp Pittsburgh 2 Conference on or around August 19th, 2007.

Joe: Dude, I missed my brother's bar mitzvah because I spent the day reading through all the bacn in my inbox.

Danny: You're such a tool.

Joe: Can't... stop. Too weak... to... manage alerts. Must... label... auto-archive... cut the fat.

Bacn is email you receive that isn’t spam and isn’t personal mail. It’s the middle class of email. It’s notifications of a new post to your Facebook wall or a new follower on Twitter. It’s the Google alert for your name and the newsletter from your favorite company.

Email that is neither spam nor personal mail. The second class of email. It's the notifications and newsletters from websites. Anytime you submit a definition you receive bacn from urbandictionary.

A piece of email that isn't spam, but isn't a genuine email either. Bacn is most likely to come to your inbox as a message from a service or website you are a member of.
-Dude, I just got an email saying that Jenny messaged me on Facebook!
-That's alright, it's just bacn.

-50% of all items at Megamart. That's a bacn email.

You know all those notifications, newsletters, project notifications, updates etc. that you sign up for and really, really want to keep up to date on but don’t seem to have the time for right now? (and now, and now, and now). - Andy Quayle
