  1. If this report is true, it’s disturbing to say the least. Then again, I think one of the drawbacks of social networking is the abundance of information people reveal about themselves–it’s publicly available, so of course intelligence gathering agencies will make use of it.

  2. Lucky thing I am not in Iran.
    Why do police need to look for facebook?

    See you around.
