I just read this article from Andrew Pontbriand on distract101.com. He claims you can identify who is monitoring your fedbook page(s). Upon following his directions, my ‘facebook security’ voyeurs are apparently as follows (screenshot).
Rather than just taking Andrew’s word for it and blocking them, I first visited each of these people’s profile pages. I don’t know who they are, but we have ‘mutual friends’ and each page looked very much like ‘my sort of people’. ie; eviction resistance, helping homeless people, anonymous, antifa etc. Two of these people had posts stating that they (and their friends) were aware that they had been identified as ‘facebook security’ – yet they both claim not to be.
Of course, they would say that that though, wouldn’t they?
I’m not going to block them on such scant information, especially considering that the directions Andrew received came from fedbook themselves.
- How likely is it fedbook would share the actual means of identifying their own ‘security’?
- How much more likely is it that fedbook might be directing people to block potential allies?
Not sure what to make of it yet, so sharing these initial findings and thoughts for my little filter bubble’s edification. If you’re interested, you can read my previous ghostban investigations and conclusions here:
