How Raytheon's CISPA Software Will Track You Online

A new software system from defense contractor Raytheon that can collate information about you from Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, Google+ and other social networks makes President Obama's anticipated announcement about CISPA all the more horrifying. Using this new system the FBI, NSA, DEA, DHS or what ever government agents that want to follow you, all the more easier.

The software not only pulls all your posts, but the secret GPS info embedded into every time you post something from a mobile device. Desktop computers also send tracking info but it is done by IP address rather than GPS, and is much less accurate and easier to spoof. Using the system big brother not only knows where you are but can also predict where you will go based on past location data. Last but certainly not least because social networks are about connecting with others, the system is capable of putting together a group profile on all your friends to determine who your meeting with, where and when.

Welcome to President Obama's CISPA America.
