Russian secret services to use social networks to track people

The Russian secret services have developed a program to track people going to rallies and demonstrations, via social networks.

The Russian secret services created a computer program that will constantly monitor the social networks in order to receive, process and compile data, and then identify those who are going to attend a rally or demonstration, or organizes unsanctioned actions. These programs will be updated every five minutes. So far, the developers of this program check the most active groups of participants of mass gatherings. Soon, the program will keep track of all Runet users.

It should be recalled that in Russia it has been prohibited to hold any meetings and rallies not agreed by the authorities for several years now. For disobedience people are immediately taken to prison trucks, interrogated, fined or sent to jail for half a month.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that media should be independent and no one should doubt it and try to use it to their advantage.
