News reports confirm that governments are now being aided by Facebook to spy on activists who plan peaceful protests.
One report reveals that over 300 activists were tracked, detained, and in some case deported after organizing events on the popular social networking site.
As I previously reported, Pro-Palestinian activists planned a peaceful ‘Fly-In’ protest in a solidarity mission against Israel’s illegal occupation of the Palestine territories.
The story made news after Israel put security forces on a state of high-alert ahead of scheduled protests.
Also recall not to long ago Julian Assange, of Wikileaks fame, reported that Facebook is being used as spy machine for the US Government.
