‘Riot’ software could help governments spy on your real-life activity through social networks
If you need yet another reason to ensure your Facebook privacy settings are adequately locked down, Raytheon’s “Riot” software should do the trick. Developed by the Massachusetts-based security firm, Riot — short for Rapid Information Overlay Technology — can quickly mine various social networks for an individual user’s data, using previous posts to predict your future behavior and / or your location at any given time.
Well, this is a whole new kind of visibility in our world. How visibile do you think you would be?
