This is also about surveillance and an AP article written in the past about the CIA

monitoring Facebook and Twitter, also Stratfor has done this work and does it.

They did not have the same equipment but they has the same job in the surveillance of

US citizens and citizens worldwide.

The upcoming Global Intelligence Files will give you a proof.

Governmental Social Media Surveillance Leaked WikiLeaks Stratfor EMail

This Leak will give you proof that CIA, Stratfor and you can easy imagine other Shadow Surveillance Agencys are monitoring the world wide web social medias.

There was an AP Exclusive: CIA following Twitter, Facebook Article

They are talking about in that following leaked EMails.

    Have suspected this, but provides an idea of the scope of the
    surveillance.

    CIA Open Source Center in charge of following these social websites. Used
    to provide a quick sweep of reaction to world events. Have several
    hundred analysts. Follow about 5 million tweets a day. The listed
    examples were to the death of UBL, social responses to Obama’s Middle East
    speech. Started to use this media after the Green Revo. in Iran and how
    Twitter impacted that. Thought that they would have started monitoring
    these sites in a systematic way before that.

So what we all know and what we all thought before is now leaked and you have it black and white on your screen right now you as are reading this blogpost.

So there are three Points in that EMail and on two of those I want to shine some light on.

    3 things
    1. Their job is very very similar to ours with better resources and
    different requirements
    2. Note how they use, caveat, and compare their monitoring of social media
    3. There is no organized monitoring of US domestic social media

     

1. Their job is very very similar to ours with better resources and
different requirements

so at the first point Stratfor (SF) says that they are monitoring the social media too like the CIA but the CIA has more massive Computers and resources than SF and different requirements. The CIA Open Source Center was created after the attacks of 9/11 for a better state of the art surveillance of citizens and terrorist activities.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Source_Center

The OSC Leader at the moment is Douglas Naquin. you can imagine that within a more and more networked world through programs like facebook and twitter (spying machines) the resources must have been increased rapidly because we live in a new century of informations.

3. There is no organized monitoring of US domestic social media

this point I would call today a fail. because we know now that the NSA is building a huge Spy Center in USA Utah you can see and hear about this on Jacob Applebaums 29C3 keynote. So it is important to note that not only the CIA OSC, and Stratfor are monitoring Facebook and Twitter or other social medias – also The NSA and for sure Germanys BND and other surveillance Agencys are up into the great spying machine called the internet. and the social media networks are their most powerful tools.

watch full or start at 11:23.

the mail goes on with an important note of an agent.

    3. Don’t bet on it. It’s just better hidden

So he claims to be that point 3 is not valid and the monitoring is just better hidden. this is an important note because it is NOT only the CIAs open source center who is monitoring all that social media networks there is more hidden surveillance in the state and all around the internet.

    No, not OSC

    Facebook
    By the CIA OSC?

So what are those important points to know, what can you do to get not in the view of spys and secret agents. well this is way difficult to say. at first try to be anonymous as possible if you don´t want to get “”visited”" by unknown.

use often nicknames on the web. try things like the tor browser and use unix / Linux systems for a better control of your system. you can use VPN and create different mail accounts.

at least it is up to all of you with whom do you talk and what do you share – do you need your real name in facebook? do you need to post pictures of your friends or the latest party? think before posting. what is important what do you need to say and what is to much private information?

I am sure if someone would stay in your house or appartment watching you all the time face 2 face you do not know him and he is not much talking to you. you wouldn´t share or your personal stuff with him. you would ask him to leave.

Talk about this on WikiLeaks Forum (or on this blog ;) )

I thought it might be helpful to post: "The anonymous guide" thread contains a lot of links to resources that help one evade surveillance and stay as anonymous and untraceable as possible:

http://www.wikileaks-forum.com/index.php/topic,4882.0.html

I especially recommend EFF's Surveillance Self-Defense guide: https://ssd.eff.org/
And of course, the Tor browser for "anonymous" browsing: https://torproject.org
There is the Tails live DVD/USB operating system, which forces everything through Tor and leaves no trace on computer: https://tails.boum.org/
Also, I highly recommend using PGP or GPG encryption for email (links in the anonymous guide thread).
And disk encryption in case your computer gets confiscated and searched.
Using a trustworthy VPN also helps. Connecting to that VPN then using Tor browser helps.

Oh that's right, PGP is iffy now. I prefer GPG.

For disk encryption, there is also TrueCrypt, which is free: www.truecrypt.org
There is FileVault for Macs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FileVault
Guide for Linux: http://www.markus-gattol.name/ws/dm-crypt_luks.html
List of more disk encryption software: http://www.esecurityplanet.com/mobile-security/buyers-guide-to-full-disk-encryption.html

Information on file and disk encryption, in EFF's Surveillance Self-Defense guide:
https://ssd.eff.org/tech/disk-encryption

For operating systems, I recommend Linux, BSD, and Unix distros... because these are usually much safer from viruses and other warez than Mac or Windows OSes. Still not 100% impossible to get malware on, but much more secure. Whatever OS/OSes one uses, it is important to regularly scan (1 anti virus and at least 1 or more anti-malware/spyware <- make sure anti malware/spyware are legitimate and not masked malware themselves).

Ubuntu or Mint are great Linux/Linux-based distros for beginners (and require less command-line use than other distros). And they are free:

Very interessting note on this here. this fits perfect into social media surveillance and is really interessting. CIAs "Big Data"

"You are aware of the fact that somebody can know where you are at all times, because you carry a mobile device, even if that mobile device is turned off," sagt er. "You know this, I hope? Yes? Well, you should."

"Sie sind sich dessen bewusst das jemand jeder Zeit weiß wo sie sind, weil sie ein Mobile Device (handy, pad, phone, smartphone, internetstick ETC.) mit sich tragen, selbst wenn es nicht eingeschaltet ist, Sie wissen das hoffe ich? Ja ? Nun, sie sollten es.
