    FBI To Ramp Up Social Media Surveillance
    by Tyler Durden

    The FBI plans to step up its efforts to gather information from social media - issuing a call last week for a new tool to monitor Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms "in a timely fashion."

    Citing the use of social media by terrorist groups, domestic threats, criminal organizations and foreign intelligence services, the FBI "needs near real time access to a full range of social media exchanges in order to obtain the most current information available," according to the request for proposal.

    In addition to information such as user IDs, the feds are interested in "emails, IP addresses, telephone numbers, and likely aliases" used over social media. The tool would also allow for location-based tracking, persistent keyword monitoring, and access to one's personal social media history.

    The FBI has justified the tool by claiming it is in response "to an increasing number of threats to U.S. national interests that are identifiable, with ever-greater frequency, through social media platforms."

    They have been monitoring this forum from the beginning . It is nothing I worry about . I have seen a nut on another forum that went to raving about killing politicins then abruptly disappeared . They are all the time looking for nuts like that .

    I don't use facebook, twitter and all the rest.
    as for forums like this, we are just having a chat and for the most part discussing a theoretical event WHICH HASNT HAPPENED YET.
    until that does happen, we all abide by the laws and rules in force in our respective countries.

    True, but even speculating on doing such a thing has been known to draw unnecessary attention to a forum and its members, which is one of the reasons why things like that are against the rules on most sites.

    That is a really slippery slope. All the best intentions are categorized as " for National Security". How could anybody argue with that? They will compile massive data banks on every single user that can and will be used against them. The last administration did it already.

    One side of me says don't tie law enforcement's hands when they are trying to stop terrorist threats. The other side says they are invading privacy far beyond what they should be allowed.

    Like Lonewolf, I don't use Social Media. If I wasn't required to have it for work I wouldn't even be on it. There used to be an old guide line that we followed for business ethics: If you wouldn't want it published on the front page of the newspaper then don't do it. I would use this same standard for Social Media.

    I left social media years ago because of the idiots posting there and because of the oppressive nature of the surveillance that already existed. This only reinforces my decision to stay away.

    I wouldn't even be on line if circumstances hadn't made it necessary.
