A 2008 memo obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) confirms it: big brother is watching.
The report by the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which is entitled “Social Networking Sites and Their Importance to FDNS” (Office of Fraud Detection and National Security), offers agents detailed instructions on the ins-and-outs of social networks, including how to join, how to expand friend networks once one is a member, what the most popular social networking sites are, and more.
