Government Started & Monitoring Facebook Conspiracy
Did the government start, and do they monitor Facebook? Or is it just a conspiracy? Think about it for a second… wouldn’t it make way too much sense?
Seriously, did the government start Facebook?
Is there some sort of government regulation in place that says they cannot access Facebook’s databases?
Stand in the government’s shoes and think: “What better way to” …
Track Potential Criminals
The government could be spying on anyone, at any time!
It would be pretty easy for them to find the local weed (or coke, heroin, whatever..) dealers, which they could use to work their way up to the big movers.
Of course, the government has other ways of invading our privacy, but using Facebook to monitor criminals adds that much more data.. sometimes, people just give away hard evidence on Facebook, like “Yo Dan, you got that same dank green from last time?”
Invade Your Privacy
For whatever reason they’d want to, the government can monitor, spy on, or invade your privacy.
Imagine if their wasn’t such a thing as separation of church and state! – All those pictures of you drinking excessively, freak dancing with the opposite sex, and eating a stupid amount of food would be “against the law” (aka sins).
The funniest part is that with Facebook, people just GIVE IT ALL AWAY! No one thinks about what they are really doing by uploading their pictures to Facebook.
From the Facebook terms page (number 2.1):
For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (“IP content”), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook (“IP License”). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.
That is to say.. Facebook owns your pictures, videos, status updates, and comments (unless you set your privacy settings otherwise).
Segment The Demographics
As it stands right now, the Facebook advertising platform allows you to target a specific audience.. you can specify gender, age, location, and preferences (like movies, books, interests.. by use of keyword)!
THAT MEANS: anyone can pay Facebook to advertise to their target market! (per click or per thousand views (CPM))!
So couldn’t the government access or use that data to…
Email Blast to Market Propaganda
We all know how the government loves to push propaganda on the masses to instill fear and create change. What better way to do that by monitoring everyones preferences on Facebook and sending emails (or direct mail) out to those who have certain tendencies or preferences?
Prepare for Rallies or Attacks
Since you can use Facebook to organize a group a people – some will use it to organize anti-government policy rallies… this is perfect for the government as they can prepare. How they prepare is up to your imagination.
What Do You Think About Facebook & The Government?
Without going into too much more detail, I hope you’re convinced that the government started Facebook and are monitoring it for all the reasons and benefits they have (and more) listed above.
I really hope there is some kind of Facebook government access regulation in place. Otherwise, there is no telling what they can do.
There are links between the venture capital groups that invested $12.7M into Facebook and the Information Awareness Office whose soul mission is to create Total Information Awareness. That means:
creating enormous computer databases to gather and store the personal information of everyone in the United States, including personal e-mails, facebook, credit card records, phone calls, medical records, and numerous other sources, without any requirement for a search warrant
