US citizens expect the Department of
Homeland Security (DHS) to protect the country from potential threats, but the
that DHS will monitor Twitter & Facebook will surely cause privacy
advocates great concern. Social Media has been used extensively in the
government uprisings world-wide and DHS is now drawing up guidelines to
monitor Social Media. Undersecretary of the DHS Caryn Wagner told an
audience at the National Symposium on Homeland Security and Defense in Colorado
still trying to figure out how you use things like Twitter as a source...How do
you establish trends and how do you then capture that in an intelligence
The DHS guidelines may cast a pall
over Social Media and impact how Social Media is used and surely the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) will
keep a close eye. As a matter of fact, EPIC posted
a recent report
from Carnegie Mellon University that found that "privacy tools designed to
protect consumers from online behavioral advertising are ineffective because
they are difficult for users to understand and to configure."
Everyone needs to stay tuned to see how this unfolds.
