U.S. Government Uses Facebook 'Narcissism' Against You
Agents are encouraged to examine user profiles, and track their interactions on social networking sites to ensure they're not attempting to obtain citizenship through dishonest means. The document explains that "once a user posts online, they create a public record and timeline of their activities. In essence, using MySpace and other like sites is akin to doing an unannounced cyber 'site-visit.'" Of course, these cyber visits don't require an officer to give a name or identify him-or-herself as a federal agent. It's a tad creepy to think that the cute guy or girl who just started following you on Twitter might be a government spook, but it's not entirely shocking. Besides, by now you should know not to post or say anything online you don't want people to know. So, making your status, "I love my fake husband for helping me become a citizen" is probably not a bright idea.
