“Big Brother” May Be Friending You on Facebook

Be careful who you friend on Facebook.  It could be a federal agent looking for tax delinquents, copyright infringers or political protestors.

A recent New York Times editorial about the government monitoring Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites brought to mind the George Orwell book, “1984.”   Looks like Big Brother is watching more than ever!

There are more and more instances coming to light about law enforcement officers going undercover on sites like Facebook as part of their investigations.

It’s certainly raising privacy concerns about social networking. Earlier this month, a public interest group filed a lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act to learn more about the monitoring, and to try to start a national discussion about modifying privacy laws for the online era.

I absolutely think it’s an area that needs attention. Social networking isn’t just for 20-somethings anymore.  Businesses, large and small, are using these sites.  Everyone needs to remember that they can be held accountable for what they say online.
