City to monitor public’s social media posts

WEST SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — West Sacramento is the first city to launch a controversial new program that watches what people post about it online.

The pilot project gives city leaders a look at what’s trending in the city, whether it’s good or bad. It’s also creating privacy concerns around how the data is being used.

    So innocent. Law enforcement has been doing this forever.
    Once again…
    Stay off social media, folks.

    Cause all the other important problems are solved.

    California southpaw is right. All law enforcement agencies in my hometown each have a person whose only job is to monitor local posts. I wonder, are these people cops themselves, or civilians? I’d like the job as I already spend most of my time online.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
