Slashdot | NSA To Datamine Social Networking Sites

Slashdot | NSA To Datamine Social Networking Sites

"New Scientist has discovered that the NSA is funding research into the mass harvesting of the information that people post about themselves on social networks. And it could harness advances in internet technology - specifically the forthcoming 'semantic web' championed by the web standards organisation W3C - to combine data from social networking websites with details such as banking, retail and property records, allowing the NSA to build extensive, all-embracing personal profiles of individuals."


Because we all know that MySpace is known for its reliable personal data.

I hope they don't search my Craigs List posts...
