Facebook and its infiltration into our modern society is now the barometer of whether or not a person is “suspicious” or not. Some psychologists are even suggesting that not having a Facebook profile means that you are a psychopath.
By not following the mass of sheeple giving up their personal information to online social networking sites as well as leaving a small online footprint, this signals a person who is potentially dangerous.
Even becoming employed may hinge on your Facebook profile – as a way to monitor your personal life and where you fit into society. The CIA has a quite popular Facebook page that invites college student to apply for National Clandestine Service.
In March, a letter from Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, where he redefines “hacker” as meaning “building something quickly or testing the boundaries of what can be done” and those “hackers” are “idealistic people” who have a “positive impact on the world.”
The NSA recruits students from colleges and universities in a program that looks for the next generation of American-grown hackers.
Steven la Fountain explains that new hires must be able to decipher the inner workings of computer imputation to assist the US government in being the superpower of the technology world. “We are not asking them to teach kids how to break into systems, we’re not asking them to teach that. And a lot of them have said they wouldn’t teach that,” la Fountain adds. “We’re just asking them to teach the hardcore fundamental science that we need students to have when they come to work [at the NSA].”
Zuckerberg then refers to the NSA Utah Spy Center that “should be up and running in September 2013” which will connect all servers and routers and store all digital data in “near-bottomless databases” including private emails, cell phone calls, Google searches in conjunction with paper trails like receipts, traffic tickets, retail purchases to create detailed profiles on every American citizen.
