FaceBook Now Has Your Identity
FACEBOOK NOW HAS YOUR IDENTITY
Allen Johnston – The Music Specialist
Today I can sit at my computer and get more information on you than you have ever thought possible. Your life, your family and friends are now open to investigation like never before. The United States government has devised an anti terrorism plan that includes a highly sophisticated online system, declared that they will not use this system to spy on ordinary American activities, but recently the government has given Federal employees permission to access FaceBook, Twitter, MySpace and numerous other social networking sites. The reality of this situation is that FaceBook, Google, Microsoft, Sun, Apple and many other privately owned companies have the technological ability to track and maintain your personal information.
If the government can't legally collect the personal data and track every move you make, private industry can.
There are online articles of the government working with recorder boxes connected to the USA communication backbone. It's been already confirmed that at least "someone" is collecting all of the data on ordinary Americans. They are collecting stuff like airline tickets, utilities, credit trending, demographic targeting, passport registrations, credit card transactions, GPS phone tracking, email/sms recording, and more. Then it can be put all together to pinpoint your exact location with GPS, your current speed, all your text messages, and easily predict you'll show for your regular 8AM Starbucks coffee with vanilla and that you're meeting Bubba based on your text message. With this information “someone” can tell already that Bubba will be late for coffee. Maybe they will raise the price for your coffee since we know you'll be here at 8AM. We'll have the "discount" timer tick down to the last second right as you walk in. You'll be pissed at the new, inflated price, but you'll pay. I wonder what information the car dealers already have on you?
So your privacy is no longer just yours, now it belongs to many other companies who are getting paid to sell your information to individuals, companies and to the government. Google’s system now can find your house from a satellite photo, listen to your voice mails, read your emails, read your text messages, determine your exact GPS coordinates from your cell phone, follow your credit card transactions, determine your net worth and sell this information to a potential employer because it is all within the “public record”.
I know some of you don’t believe me so go see for yourself.

SEARCH YOUR MOST COMMONLY USED EMAIL ADDRESS:
THIS SITE USES A FEED OF A POPULAR SOCIAL NETWORK, TO DISCLOSE WHEN YOU'VE "CHECKED IN" AT SOME PUBLIC PLACE THIS COULD BE CRITICAL WHEN YOU ARE LEAVING HOME.
Finally a few of you will say that once again Allen is paranoid about nothing. Let me know the next time you get an unsolicited message from FaceBook with photos of your friends on it requesting that you join. Wonder where they got that information?
