Is social media affecting our privacy?
One of the government’s main duties is to tae care of the country. They need to be alert of all things happening in the country and around the world to protect the citizens. Whether it is about protecting them from other countries or protecting them from our own citizens, they have to make sure we are not in danger. They want to be precautious because by being online they can further investigate anything suspicious that could potentially harm anyone. But it is a difficult task to look after all of the people in the united states, and they have other priorities to take care of as well and they can not be watching every single person one by one they have to improvise and find a more effective way to be around the American people without anyone knowing. Government surveillance is when the U.S. officials monitor citizens through the Internet, our phones, computers, etc. They go through our personal information and try to find anything suspicious or just check on us. Although you might think the intentions are good and it is only being done because they want to protect us, they are actually invading our privacy. Without our permission they are accessing personal information, listening to our conversations, reading our emails and text messages. The government is invading our privacy because they are looking at our social media accounts without consent, they are researching people for potential crime suspects, they are spying on social media to find out what is going on in the states, officials are doing a background check on people prior to getting a job, they are monitoring our actions online.
