Thanks to Facebook, online security and offline security have merged.
Facebook now has the ability to monitor what you do, even when you’re away from your computer or smartphone. Even worse, Facebook aims to label you based on your online and offline behavior.
Earlier this week, we learned that Facebook’s WhatsApp monitors its users’ off-site activities. If you have a WhatsApp account and do the “wrong thing” on a different website, WhatsApp may sue you for “abuse.”
Now, thanks to Breitbart, we know that Facebook actively tracks Facebook users offline. That’s right. Facebook is monitoring everything you do.
What do you think Facebook is doing with this information?
In the past, you might’ve said that Facebook is selling your data. That’s always been true.
However, now, Facebook is analyzing your behavior and labeling you based on its ideology. As a result, Facebook literally can destroy your life.
Are You a “Hate Agent”?
You’re not a “hate agent.” You know that. You’re a nice person. You probably want to have a decent life, take care of your family, and pursue your dreams.
So, when Facebook decides you’re a “Hate Agent,” how will that feel?
Beyond Hurt Feelings
If Facebook hurts your feelings, that’s sad. However, you need to know that Facebook’s “Hate Agent” label will do more than hurt your feelings. It can ruin your life in many ways:
- Employment. No business wants to hire a “Hate Agent.”
- Housing. Who wants a “Hate Agent” living next door?
- Relationships. Your “Hate Agent” status affects your spouse.
- Banking. Already, banks are closing accounts and denying credit to people targeted by leftist mobs.
- Groceries. No store should sell food to a “Hate Agent.” Right?
- Violence. I don’t think Antifa and other hate-based mobs will like Facebook-designated “Hate Agents.”
- Freedom. Can you get a fair trial when everyone believes that you’re a “Hate Agent”?
What is a “Hate Agent”?
Facebook looks for online and offline “signals” that characterize “Hate Agents.”
Unsurprisingly, Facebook’s definition of hate closely tracks a leftist’s definition of hate.
Here’s what could earn you the “Hate Agent” label:
- Say something good about the “wrong” person.
- Appear at the same event as a “bad” person.
- Promote a “Designated Hateful Ideology.”
- Associate with a “Designated Hate Entity,” such as the “wrong” political candidate.
- Get a tattoo of “hate symbols” and “hate slogans.” For instance, according to Facebook, the “OK” finger sign is a hate symbol. So is a cartoon frog. Saying “It’s OK to be white” is also considered hate.
- Possess “hate paraphernalia.” What’s that?
- Statements made in private but later made public.
Who are “Hate Agents”?
Breitbart’s article includes a list of people who have already been designated by Facebook as “Hate Agents.”
Essentially, the list contains people with social and political views that differ from Facebook’s executives.
Tiers of Hate
Facebook will assign you to one of three tiers of hate.
So far, no indications exist that suggest that Facebook’s “Hate Agent” designees have any recourse.
Even if you presently share Facebook’s worldview, you have much to fear. Are you willing to migrate even farther to the left to stay in Facebook’s good graces?
If you don’t share Facebook’s social and political views, you should shake with fear. If Facebook labels you as a “Hate Agent,” you could face extreme repercussions.
Have you ever said or done something “wrong”? If so, you also should worry about Facebook’s stalking you. Just imagine if, in the future, you decide to either apply for a job or run for political office.
As reported by Breitbart, Facebook shares personal online and offline data with news outlets and other third parties. What happens when Facebook shares your “Hate Designation” with your prospective employers and voters.
Learn the Lesson
By using any social media site, including Facebook, you jeopardize your life. What may seem like reasonable behavior and speech today may be tomorrow’s hate speech. Furthermore, Facebook’s criteria will probably evolve. Consequently, you can’t predict whether you will qualify for Facebook’s “Hate Agent” label.
Online and offline security have merged. Social networks aren’t safe. If you can’t conform to Facebook’s ideology both now and in the future, you’re at risk.
Facebook’s “Hate Agent” designation can negatively impact your business, career, and family.
I’m not a Facebook user. Am I Safe?
No! Facebook tracks you regardless of whether you have a Facebook account. However, you can improve your online security by closing all your social media accounts.
