Big Brother and Social Networking sites

The CIA has recently invested in Visible Technologies which is a company that specializes in monitoring social networks. These include online forums, Flickr, YouTube, Twitter and Amazon.

Privacy has gone by the way side in hopes that your internet friends will know that you “are going clubbing.” They aren’t the only ones that can see this though. It is easy to find out when people will be home and where they are going. A wily thief could use this information to relieve you of any of your valuables you have left at home.

Your friends are not the only people watching you or your actions. Your future employers, in-laws or law enforcement can all find out more about you than you think from your internet profile. Be careful what you put out on the internet because it is who you are to the world.
