[IGN] Facebook asks DEA Not to Make Fake Profiles

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Quote:
In a letter to the DEA from Facebook's chief security officer Joe Sullivan, the company asked the DEA to "cease all activities on Facebook that involve the impersonation of others." Doing so expressly violates the company's terms of service. Among the terms violated include the prohibition of "claiming to be another person, creating a false presence for an organization," and providing "false personal information on Facebook," or creating an account "for anyone other than yourself without permission."

Interesting. The government is theoretically held accountable to EULAs, isn't it? So technically Facebook might be onto something?

Not that it will mean any difference against the long arm of the law, but hey.

Data analysis.... there are a whole bunch of metrics and data points to detect this. FB had a big purge 1-2 years ago as well.

DEA, CIA, NSA, MSNBC What ever, I assume that the government doesn't want to spy while its spying, spying on its self.
