Another great piece in the Ottawa Citizen´s Surveillance series, which is turning out to be probably the best newspaper coverage of the broad sweep of surveillance that I have yet seen.
This time they are talking to Dan Trottier and Val Steeves about the way that social networking technologies, and in particular Facebook, track individuals and groups.
The complete series The Surveillance Society: A Special Citizen Series, runs as follows:
31/01: The rise of the surveillance society
01/01: How surveillance categorizes us
02/02: Social networks and surveillance
03/02: Spying on each other
04/02: The promise and threat of behavioural targeting
05/02: Watching the watchers
Congratulations to reporter, Don Butler, in particular on some excellent work.
