FBI’s Facebook Monitoring Leads To Arrest In England

An anonymous reader writes “The BBC reports that armed police were called to a UK school earlier today after being advised of a potential threat by the FBI. The school stated that the FBI ‘raised the alarm after Internet scanning software picked up a suspicious combination of words,’ strongly implying that they are carrying out routine, automated surveillance of social networking sites. While in this case it does appear that there may have been a genuine threat, the story nonetheless raises significant privacy concerns.”
