*Ever think about the fact that some of the people who want to be your friend on Facebook, might actually be Feds in reality? If you want to let out an ‘Ahh Sh*t!’ (think Martin Lawrence) nobody will judge you at this point. After all, you’re only saying what everybody else is thinking.
If you’re among the friendly social network users and you say, “Oh sure, he’s also friends with so-and-so, so how bad can he be?” you’re not alone.
That’s what many of us do.
But the owner of several large pages on Facebook who says he is also affiliated with some ‘right-wing anti Obama pages’ warns it is not a good idea and says don’t accept friend requests from folks you don’t know.
“I have not accepted one request and I go as far as to block these individuals. That is my personal decision and is my advice to you as well,” says Dean James of American Freedom Fighters.
That being said, there are some reports out including one from CONSPIRACY CLUB that validates his concerns.
The Feds are on Facebook.
James writes, U.S. law enforcement agents are following the rest of the Internet world into popular social-networking services, going undercover with false online profiles to communicate with suspects and gather private information, according to an internal Justice Department document that offers a tantalizing glimpse of issues related to privacy and crime-fighting.
You might want to ‘think again’ if yo think you know who’s behind that “friend” request? I may just be the FBI.
The Freedom of Information Act lawsuit insists U.S. agents are already logging on surreptitiously to exchange messages with suspects, identify a target’s friends or relatives and browse private information such as postings, personal photographs and video clips.
Like we said, ‘Ahh sh*t!’
