Fox News reports that the U.S. government is looking for software experts to create “fake people” on social network sites. The job would allegedly require computer geeks to design “Persona Management Software” that would generate fictitious profiles that are so convincing, people will follow them on Twitter or accept them as Facebook Friends. That would give the government access to you and your friend’s private information. As the fake persons become more and more popular, their influence could even be used to sway public opinion.
- Go ahead! Be one of the first of your friends to “like” this idea!
- They tried this last year but it tanked when they named the fake guy, “Charles Manson”.
- Doesn’t the government already have all of our private information?
- Bottom line: Twitter everyone you know reminding them to Google any one who wants to “friend” them on Facebook!
