Google and Homeland Security
Dec 01, 2010
Google and Homeland Security:According to the internet media has become censored by Google and Homeland Security. The web site claims to be a freedom of speech political reporting outlet, however a lot of typically question the validity of their tales.
Together with the total wikileaks fiasco erupting recently and many torrent websites currently being shut down by Homeland Security for file sharing, folks are pondering a good deal about censorship and federal government involvement in search engines and also other online web site.
PrisonPlanet.com reviews that “A Freedom of Information Act request filed by former Congressman Bob Barr seeks to discover whether the Department of Homeland Security has been keeping tabs on the Drudge Report and other prominent media outlets who have spearheaded a nationwide revolt against invasive TSA airport security measures.”
We’re sure that Google is usually beneath immense stress in the government and are certainly attempting to keep specific sites in test as asked to. Is this censorship? Probably, but then yet again, the net laws really are a bit blurred in lots of regions..... aonlinebreakingnews.blogspot.com...

In a letter sent Monday, Consumer Watchdog asked Representative Darrell Issa, the new chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, to investigate the relationship between Google and several government agencies.
The group asked Issa to investigate contracts at several U.S. agencies for Google technology and services, the "secretive" relationship between Google and the U.S. National Security Agency, and the company's use of a U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration airfield in California.
The paper questions a decision by NASA allowing Google executives to use its Moffett Federal Airfield near Google headquarters. Although H211, a company controlled by Google top executives, pays NASA rent, they enjoy access to the airfield that other companies or groups don't have, Simpson said.
The paper also questions Google contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense and other agencies, suggesting that, in some cases, Google contracts were fast-tracked. The paper also questions Google's relationship with the U.S. National Security Agency and calls for the company to be more open about what consumer information it shares with the spy agency.

Social networking sites like facebook often have the default settings set to share everything.People often don't understand all the privacy settings. Even when I shut them off, I don't trust it to stay off. The networking site has access to all your info even if you've made things private.
I find most sites asking for your name will allow you to just put a letter for your name and don't prompt for a full name. If it does require a full name to be filled in,best not to use your actual name.
