Collide with the "Privacy"
Facebook and Twitter users might be able to protect their accounts by setting up "private" for every post made.
However the reality, the U.S. government desires that all data can be accessed by the FBI. According to Jennifer Lynch of the organization the Electronic Frontier, this could threaten freedom of speech in the U.S..
"The tools to be used may be capable of storing data in a long time and violate privacy. I'm afraid this will have an impact on freedom of speech in the U.S. and residents would be concerned to say what they want," explains Lynch.
The FBI also said that the social control of the media will be able to predict what will happen in the future. Periodically, the FBI will analyze the timeline, analyze trends, patterns, and associations which are formed in social media.
