03- FIVE REASONS TO THINK TWICE BEFORE BUYING FACEBOOK STOCK

From email to instant message, most communications nowadays take place in the digital world. While digital communication can be very convenient, it also can be very insecure. As more governments and corporations are tracking your usage, it’s important to be aware of exactly who has access to your conversations. Mashable reports on how Facebook is now keeping tabs on your dialogs:

Facebook and other social platforms are watching users’ chats for criminal activity and notifying police if any suspicious behavior is detected, according to a report.

The screening process begins with scanning software that monitors chats for words or phrases that signal something might be amiss, such as an exchange of personal information or vulgar language.

The software pays more attention to chats between users who don’t already have a well-established connection on the site and whose profile data indicate something may be wrong, such as a wide age gap. The scanning program is also “smart” — it’s taught to keep an eye out for certain phrases found in the previously obtained chat records from criminals including sexual predators.

If the scanning software flags a suspicious chat exchange, it notifies Facebook security employees, who can then determine if police should be notified.

Keeping most of the scanned chats out of the eyes of Facebook employees may help Facebook deflect criticism from privacy advocates, but whether the scanned chats are deleted or stored permanently is yet unknown.

    This article is all fact. For a modern Sovereign Man, the proper use of Facebook is to create and maintain a perception about yourself…not who you actually are. Whatever you post, or link, or “like”, or whatever…it should be done for the EFFECT it will have on your profile. This is information warfare. Normally it’s used by the US government against us, but we can also use these tools for advantage and perception management. -Gene
