It recently appeared that the world’s largest social network Facebook will provide detailed personal information to the political research organization called Politico in order to help politicians get elected.
The announced cooperation will mean that political research outfit will be able to compile sentiment analysis reports along with voting-age user surveys. Both private status messages and comments of the network’s American users will be sent to the outfit, which will analyze the data for political content and spit it out into stories like the ones appearing in newspapers from time to time.
Meanwhile, Facebook and the political research outfit promise that the entire process will be automated, so no social network employee could read the private posts and comments. However, each public and private message mentioning any name of presidential candidate will be fed through a sentiment analysis instrument which will then spits out somehow anonymized measures of the general population of American Facebook. In short words, the process will resemble the way the giant of web search Google usually runs reports on search trends based on engine’s users’ aggregate search activities.
At the moment, it is unclear how any personal comment can be sufficiently anonymous. That’s why industry experts criticize this decision. At the same time, they recommend every Facebook user who wants to really stuff things up to write all their messages in such a way that a machine was unable to work out their real meaning. For instance, the best recommendations were to stick the names of both rivals in equal numbers, as this is expected to annoy the bean counters.

|I can see it now, republicans & democrats compiling a database of those who bashed them on facebook be it wall post, private message, group post, then when elected the winning side use that database along with the patriot act to make a lot of anti republican/democrat citizens vanish. Do not forget it is all above board and legal to detain ANY USA citizen along with ANY International citizen with no cause, trial, explination for any time period desired! (so yeah rest of your life if they fell like).|
Apart from the above, the fact that both sides pander to one master, the bankers, they do not care who wins or need any help to get thier guy into power, so this just shows all these so called voting measures are nothing more than ways to spy on the populace.
|What's truly terrifying is not just the fact that various multi-national US based corporations are infringing upon the ideology of the US Constitution, but that nobody seems to truly be paying attention to what is going on.|
Americans wake up, PIPA & SOPA are merely the beginning of an epic culture war which inevitably gives the 1% in control the power to not just censor the internet but censor creativity as well.
|OMG goodbyeee freedom!!!|
