Police state: Police use social networking to track and find crimes
In the rise of the information age, police are getting savvy to your personal data.
Search warrants are being obtained and people are getting charged with crimes, based on information found on social networking sites.
See this video:
I have a few suggestions. First, use facebook privacy settings to protect yourself from not just police, but criminals and other prying eyes.
Secondly get to know your 4th Amendment and exercise it by stating clearly on your facebook information page what you do and do not grant for people to use regarding your information.
Thirdly look up Electronic Surveillance—Title III Affidavits – the United States
This is an example of a privacy statement that I use on social networking sites (as well as this site)
