January 17, 2013 1 comment

The Department of Homeland Security has released their 2011 “Analysts Desktop Binder,” detailing how the department has been monitoring activity on the internet and social networks. The binder includes an extensive list of key words and search terms carefully watched by analysts in multiple agencies including the Directorate for National Protection and Programs,

Prison Planet.com » Planet Infowars: Rallying Point for the Resistance!

May 23, 2012 Leave a comment

We are delighted to officially announce the launch of Planet Infowars – our new social networking hub that allows Infowarriors to connect with others, create, organize, resist and join forces around the most powerful rallying point out there.

One of the problems we’ve heard over and over again in recent years is that there is no recognized network through which truth activists can meet fellow liberty lovers and properly organize activist campaigns or simply chat with those who share their passion for freedom.

After having experimented with social networks in the past, we found them to be wildly popular but never got around to finalizing a reliable platform that would have the strength to handle the tens of thousands of members that would want to join – until now.

The book, “Facebook is deception”, reveals tales of bullying, fraud and scams and reveals their identities.

Facebook and Fake Names by Bill Rounds

Recently by Bill Rounds: Are Your Phone Conversations Recorded?

What What Happens If You Use A Fake Name On Google+ Or Facebook?

People love Facebook. Social networking is just a part of what humans do, so the fact that people use online social networks like Facebook and Google+ is no surprise. They are powerful tools for social change, business opportunities and developing strong relationships with friends and family.

But, people are nervous about providing their personal information to social networking sites, and with good reason. Social networking sites sell your information to the highest bidder. They make billions of dollars from the information that we give them for free. That information allows repressive governments to easily target undesirables, it could damage a career, or just plain cause embarrassment.

How People Protect Personal Information On Social Networking Sites

To harness the power of social networking while protecting personal information, some people use fake information in their profiles. There are lots of reasons people provide fake info. Everything from using a fake birthday or city, to using a fake profile picture or name are used by people who fear stalkers, by Egyptian revolutionaries, and by average people to protect their privacy. Only the most dedicated snoops can glean good information from a false trail.

Homeland Security Is Monitoring The Drudge Report, The New York Times

Atlantic Wire ^ | 11 January 2012 | Adam Clark Estes

Posted on Wednesday, January 11, 2012 8:29:51 PM by Windflier

It’s unclear exactly why, but the Department of Homeland has been operating a “Social Networking/Media Capability” program to monitor the top blogs, forums and social networks online for at least the past 18 months.

Based on a privacy compliance review from last November recently obtained by Reuters, the purpose of the project is to “collect information used in providing situational awareness and establishing a common operating picture.” Whatever that means.

Either way, the list of sites reported by Reuters reveals in a Wednesday afternoon exclusive is pretty intriguing…

DHS Creates Accounts Solely to Monitor Social Networks

ABC News ^ | December 28, 2011 | OLIVIA KATRANDJIAN

Posted on Wednesday, December 28, 2011 8:30:57 PM by Brandonmark

An online privacy group is suing the U.S. Department of Homeland Security accusing it of not releasing records from the agency’s covert surveillance of Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites.

The DHS creates accounts solely to monitor social media sites and establish a system of records of the information gathered. The agency does not post information, seek to connect with other users, accept invitations to connect or interact with others according to a statement on their website.

The agency scans social media sites for a list of words that include “dirty bomb,” “hostage,” “exercise,” “task force,” “explosion,” “lockdown,” “riot,” “nuclear threat,” “brown out,” “meth lab,” “cain and abel” and “brute forcing.”

Several countries and cities, including North Korea and Mexico, are also flagged as key words.

In a statement, the DHS said that the National Operations Center (NOC) “will gather, store, analyze, and disseminate relevant and appropriate de-identified information to federal, state, local, and foreign governments, and private sector partners authorized to receive situational awareness and a common operating picture,” said the statement.

In April 2011, the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) requested records from the DHS of the agency’s social network monitoring program. The agency has an obligation to locate the records and notify the requestor if the records are available for release.

I would like to enlist the knowledge of my fellow freepers. My local rag the Journal News who doesn’t even allow excerpts to be posted has just changed their comments section to only allow Facebook postings. They give some lame excuse about some people are upset at the postings and it is not fair it is anonymous. Since you have to sign up with a valid e-mail address they are not really anonymous. Besides the attempt to stifle dissent through intimidation why would they do this? Is there something I am missing?

Facebook’s new Timeline set to ‘lock in’ users

October 1, 2011 Leave a comment

WASHINGTON: Facebook begins rolling out its biggest ever shake-up, in a move observers say will not only profoundly alter how its 800 million users interact with the site, but will keep them coming back for decades to come.

The new “Timeline,” revealed last week by chief executive Mark Zuckerberg will also likely shock some users, notorious for backlashes in recent years over even small adjustments to the site, let alone a complete re-think of how their lives are presented to the world.

The changes amount to the “heart of your Facebook experience, completely rethought from the ground up,” Zuckerberg told an annual developers conference.

Rick Marini, CEO of the Facebook-focused “career network” BranchOut, which itself boasts millions of users, marveled this week in a conference call with marketers and reporters how the site had managed to build an enduring model.

The 8 Ways Big Brother Facebook’s New Changes Alienate Its Users (Long Article)

September 27, 2011 Leave a comment

Facebook is supposed to be one of the most innovative social networking websites on the Net. It is, at the very least, the biggest — by far.

But for how long will Mark Zuckerberg’s Harvard project remain number one? It’s a fair question to ask now that the changes Facebook announced Thursday at its f8 conference are being criticized by virtually everybody — except for Zuckerberg himself, that is.

When Google+, the new social network of Google, was launched, many were critical. The criticism disappeared at the very moment people starting using it, however: all its new users fell in love with it immediately. This wasn’t just a “social network,” it was truly a new home on the Internet, especially for those who had grown tired of Facebook’s clutter and arrogance.

Facebook knew it had to strike back. First came video chat, which is a partnership with Skype. Then, this week, other innovations were rolled out: the biggest changes were a new news stream and the possibility to subscribe to users’ public posts. Then, Thursday, other changes were introduced that, Zuckerberg announced, would truly revolutionize your Internet experience.

But are these changes in the best interest of Facebook’s 800 million users? No. Not even almost………………

Five Ways to Screw Up Your Life with the Internet

September 24, 2011 Leave a comment

One of the odd things about the Internet is that so many people don’t seem to understand that it’s real. Sure, they realize that there’s a computer in front of them, a “series of tubes,” and then…it gets kind of foggy. It’s like they think there are magical pixies from the land of Lulz on the other end, as opposed to their family, friends, co-workers, and old boyfriends who are obsessively poring over their Facebook page.

Granted, they are aware that they do need to be careful about a few things: viruses, hackers, identity thieves, Nigerian princes who want to give them millions of dollars — all the standard stuff. But there are some lesser known dangers of the Internet that can steamroll your life like Paris Hilton stampeding towards a line of cocaine.

Prison Planet.com » Pentagon Plan to Monitor Activists On Facebook and Twitter

August 3, 2011 1 comment

Department document leaked to NBC provided a “first inside look at how the U.S. military has stepped up intelligence collection inside this country since 9/11, which now includes the monitoring of peaceful anti-war and counter-military recruitment groups.”

Northcom also has a unit dedicated to snooping on political activists.

In 2002, the Pentagon established CIFA, Counterintelligence Field Activity, by directive. Its size and budget were classified. CIFA created a database, TALON (Threat and Local Observation Notice), to keep track of antiwar activists and individuals opposed to invading and bombing small defenseless countries. After a spate of bad PR, the government said CIFA was to be dismantled. It was later revealed that its operations were outsourced and privatized.

Google launches all out social networking assault with Google+ (video)

June 29, 2011 Leave a comment

Social networking has long been Google’s white whale. The company has done plenty of dabbling in the space, releasing Orkut, which has failed to catch on in the US, and rolling out Buzz to the relative indifference of its massive user base. Announced today after seemingly endless leaks, Google+ represents a major push for the software giant. The service began showing itself to a smattering of users last night, as a black bar across the top of various of the company’s properties. A “+You” button on the far left of the bar currently brings you to the service’s landing page, offering a tour of the many features that fall under the Google+ umbrella. Get to know the services better after the break.

US Gov. Software Creates ‘Fake People’ on Social Networks to Promote Propaganda

The Examiner ^ | February 18, 2011 | Sean KerriganPosted on Saturday, February 19, 2011 8:21:33 PM by Tolerance Sucks Rocks

The US government is offering private intelligence companies contracts to create software to manage “fake people” on social media sites and create the illusion of consensus on controversial issues.

The contract calls for the development of “Persona Management Software” which would help the user create and manage a variety of distinct fake profiles online. The job listing was discussed in recently leaked emails from the private security firm HBGary after an attack by internet activist last week.

Click here to view the government contract PDFAccording to the contract, the software would “protect the identity of government agencies” by employing a number of false signals to convince users that the poster is in fact a real person.

A single user could manage unique background information and status updates for up to 10 fake people from a single computer.

During debates on the Banker Bailout Bill on the floor of Congress in 2008, Congressman Brad Sherman made a startling revelation “Many of us were told in private conversations that if we voted against this bill on Monday that the sky would fall, the market would drop 2 or 3000 points the first day and another couple of thousand points the second day and a few members were even told that there would be MARTIAL LAW IN AMERICA if we voted no.

“Plans to suspend the Constitution have been taking place behind the scenes under cover of ‘Continuity of Government Contigency’ plans first exposed in the mid 1980 and raised by Congressman Jack Brooks during the Iran-Contra hearings and squashed by hearing chairman Daniel Inouye, HI.US Army and Marine troops practice urban warfare training and population control in American cities in violation of the Posse Comitatus act.

Now Facebook is letting companies and individuals buy the right to republish those actions to your friends in ads — including your name and profile photo — on the social network’s site.Called “Sponsored Stories,” these ads look like the other small ads that adorn the right side of the screen which can already feature your name if you’ve Liked the product in question. In this case, as a video posted to Facebook’s marketing page Tuesday explains, the ad will simply recycle your check-in or Like as an ad labeled “Sponsored Story.”In the video, Facebook developers explain how the format works and how it lets advertisers get around one disadvantage of people’s check-ins and Likes showing up in the usual News Feed: “a lot of impressions do get lost because there’s so much content coming through.” One staffer also makes an important point that is already getting lost in debates about this: “A sponsored story never goes to somebody who’s not one of your friends.”Excerpt Read more at voices.washingtonpost.com …

Top 10 Ways to School Your Leftist Friends on Facebook

Top 10 Ways to School Your Leftist Friends on Facebook
David Horowitz’s NewsReal Blog ^ | November 7, 2010 | Diane Schrader

Posted on Sunday, November 07, 2010 3:53:52 PM by HorowitzianConservative

You’re all bloggers, you know. If you’re on Facebook, you have an opportunity to express your opinion with an audience of FB friends. More of us should be taking advantage of this opportunity.

Because unless you zealously guard the ideological purity of your Facebook friendlist, limiting it only to other people who also only limit to conservatives, you are bound to log on one day and find some spectacularly annoying and/or downright asinine comment posted to which you must respond. And I mean you MUST respond. (See #10, below.)

Now this can be bruising, because text-based arguments get nastier a whole lot quicker, in my experience, than face-to-face interactions. Most people are a whole lot more polite in person than when protected by the relative anonymity of their computer screen, and this goes double for Leftists. What’s more, it is often the friends of your friends to whom you will find yourself responding, and they may well be people you don’t know and will never meet, which can shove the nasty meter into overdrive. But armed with these tips, you can have a rewarding exchange, pound Leftism, and maintain your dignity:

10.  Let no Leftist idiocy go unchallenged.

This is the basic rule.

Facebook apps providing information to advertisers: WSJ

October 18, 2010 Leave a comment

WASHINGTON — Many popular applications on Facebook are violating the social network’s rules and transmitting identifying information about users to advertising and Internet tracking companies, The Wall Street Journal reported.The newspaper said it conducted an investigation and found that the issue affects tens of millions of Facebook application users, including people who set their profiles to be completely private.

It said the practice breaks Facebook’s rules and renews questions about its ability to keep secure identifiable information about the activities of its members.The Journal said applications were providing access to Facebook members’ names and, in some cases, their friends’ names, to companies that build detailed databases on people in order to track them online.

Facebook and Social Media: A Convenient Cover For Spying

October 14, 2010 2 comments

Longtime AMERICAN FREE PRESS readers may recall that DARPA Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has some creepy tentacles:

the Information Awareness Office IAO; TIA Total Information Awareness, renamed Terrorism Information Program; and TIPS Terrorism Information and Prevention System. By 2003, an irate American people forced the government to drop these spooky command-and-control police state operations—or did they?

The “vampire coven” was seemingly dead and buried—but was the stake actually driven through its evil heart?In 2002, Divya Narendra had an idea for a social network site. By the fall of 2003, she and twin brothers Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss were looking for a web developer who could bring their idea to life. On Nov. 30, 2003 they hired Mark Zuckerberg to finish their program’s codes. Little did they know what a monster Zuckerberg would hatch.Zuckerberg bragged about taking their money so he could make his own social networking site. He boasted that his creation, which became the popular “Facebook” online social network, would naturally succeed.

While pretending to work on college projects, he was sabotaging his clients by stalling. He claimed he was backed by the “Brazilian Mafia”—but AFP’s revelations will show, it is dangerous to believe anything Zuckerberg says.Notably, The Social Network, is a new movie based on Zuckerberg and the pre-CIA founding years of Facebook, starring Jesse Eisenberg as Zuckerberg. Check upcoming issues of AFP to see how closely the script depicts the shocking facts.

It’s All Really Very Simple, If …
You Can Become a Conspiracy Investigator

By J Speer Williams
10-5-10
Let us begin by asking ourselves, “Who owns the corporate-mainstream media?”
And of course, the answer is large, very large, corporations own the corporate media.
But, who owns the controlling stock of these large corporations, and controls their “news” and aired content?
The answer is the foreign, privately owned International Monetary/Banking Cartel, that controls the money and credit of the world. Make sense?
Our knee-jerk, tunnel-visioned, democratic and republican voters must develop some peripheral political vision, or they will be taught some lessons of life that could more easily be learned by viewing outside the propagandized fields of corporate-media focus.
Now, if one will study the long and infamous track record of this private Monetary Cartel, and correlate its activities with the corresponding “news” of the day, one will soon see the reciprocal relationship between that news and the subsequent national and international events.
You see, the corporate media does not so much report on news events, as it prepares the stage to justify the various covert actions then taken by the Cartel.

Web attack ‘aimed at one bloggerFacebook iconFacebook was not taken completely offline by the attackA “massively co-ordinated” attack on websites including Google, Facebook and Twitter was directed at one individual, it has been confirmed.Facebook told BBC News that the strike was aimed at a pro-Georgian blogger known as Cyxymu.

The attack caused a blackout of Twitter for around two hours, while Facebook said its service had been “degraded”.Google said it had defended its sites and was now working with the other companies to investigate the attack.”[The] attack appears to be directed at an individual who has a presence on a number of sites, rather than the sites themselves,” a Facebook spokesman told BBC News.

“Specifically, the person is an activist blogger and a botnet was directed to request his pages at such a rate that it impacted service for other users.

“Botnets are networks of computers under the control of hackers.The machines were used to mount a so-called denial-of-service DOS attack on Thursday.

FACEBOOK PROBLEM Vanity

September 2, 2010 Leave a comment

Maybe some of you high tech types can help me here. I have a Facebook account. I had one for several months, but all of a sudden, Facebook now requires me to verify my account before I can post anything. The only ways offered are to link the account to a mobile phone or to provide Facebook with a valid credit card.

Well, I don’t have a mobile phone and I don’t get why I would want to give Facebook a credit card number which it could use fraudulently. There should not be any charges for using Facebook.There is a tech support/help page, which provides me with little if any useable information on the subject. Nowhere is there a tech support telephone number I can call.So if any of you Facebook subscribers/techies can help — I would appreciate it. Thank you!
