The only other thing I can think of is that this is also the email I have associated with my facebook acct and I know alot of those apps and games access your personal info which I why I dont use any of them.
Your friends use Yahoo, you use social networking.
It could be either. Your account being hacked would be more along the lines that your friends are complaining to you that you are sending them viagra emails.
To be safe run housecall, change your passwords more frequently, make them more complex and stop using public hotspots.
