End Of FaceBook

I hardly used Facebook, after working briefly for the developer and Facebook Blackhat program. I found the platform to be a hazard. Being primarily from an infosec background, sharing accurate information wasn’t something that I was comfortable doing. Facebook took off so well in the early days as an intelligence tool, why snoop for information on people when they would willingly share it. Facebook being a free platform, though endorsed by governments as a way to creep up on their residents.

Example in older James Bond movies, you’d see 007 jumping from country to country finding out information. These days, all you have to do is access the right Facebook friends circle and wait for them to post information, using analytical and prediction methodologies you can then start to build a picture on a particular person.
