Social media has its ups and downs but one of them may be an undercover friend who works for the FBI. There is nothing wrong with having an law enforcement officer as your friend as long as you have nothing to hide. But what about the guy or gal who are up to no good on facebook, twitter and myspace…..you would seriously have to consider your presence on these social media networking websites:
U.S. law enforcement agents are following the rest of the Internet world into popular social-networking services, going undercover with false online profiles to communicate with suspects and gather private information, according to an internal Justice Department document that offers a tantalizing glimpse of issues related to privacy and crime-fighting.
Think you know who’s behind that “friend” request? Think again. Your new “friend” just might be the FBI.
