        This is a quick report from Mashable.com, I found it quite interesting:

        Facebook and other social platforms are watching users’ chats for criminal activity and notifying police if any suspicious behavior is detected, according to a report.

        The screening process begins with scanning software that monitors chats for words or phrases that signal something might be amiss, such as an exchange of personal information or vulgar language.

        The software pays more attention to chats between users who don’t already have a well-established connection on the site and whose profile data indicate something may be wrong, such as a wide age gap. The scanning program is also “smart” — it’s taught to keep an eye out for certain phrases found in the previously obtained chat records from criminals including sexual predators.

        If the scanning software flags a suspicious chat exchange, it notifies Facebook security employees, who can then determine if police should be notified.

        Keeping most of the scanned chats out of the eyes of Facebook employees may help Facebook deflect criticism from privacy advocates, but whether the scanned chats are deleted or stored permanently is yet unknown.


        Should we be concerned about privacy when chatting on Facebook?

        i feel some of these sites are bad news and need to be monitored not only for criminal content ,but  predatory activity,bullying and other things.

        I hear about bullying via facebook on the news along with suicide attempts and so on, so I guess in one way it is good.  On the other hand, I don't think it's right that private chats are being monitored.

        If you are over the hill,then as of my last b-day..I'm going down the mountain...no hills for me!!

        As far as the chat thing goes,maybe for those under 21 it might be a good idea.Too much bullying and predators and something needs to be done to prevent it.

        I could see how a site like Facebook would be an ideal means of communication for criminal activity. I think it's actually a good idea to monitor in some capacity. From the info you posted Johnny, it seems like they have some idea of what things they are looking for.
