I just thinking out loud here, but some recent developments have me seeing things differently, connecting the dots in a new way. Please pardon this run-on sentence:

With Facebook sharing everything with the NSA/FBI, and with the FBI now launching a massive facial recognition program going live for about 10% of the US population, and with the states wanting to operate drones everywhere, and with the states sharing everything with the feds via fusion centers…

I’m thinking of turning off the ability of people to tag me in pictures on social media.

EFF has a report on the new facial recognition program and comments on social media

although the FBI has said in these documents that it will not allow non-mug shot photos such as images from social networking sites to be saved to the system, there are no legal or even written FBI policy restrictions in place to prevent this from occurring.

And, even if there were legal restrictions (like the 4th Amendment), I wouldn’t trust the FBI to follow them.
