Do your instincts tell you you’re being surveilled or stalked on social media? If so, then you are in a category of 90% of all people who frequently get surveilled.
While not knowing the actual source from which these unscrupulous events occur, many of us have had similar experiences, often suspecting the most logical perpetrators would be federal, state, or local governments, or an alliance thereof. Perhaps corporate media, or a lone wolf who’s angry about another person’s personal or political views.
Whomever or whatever the culprit might be, often they follow their targets around social media like jealous spouses — manipulating and steering posts designed to mimic what members on social media are doing in their private lives.
For example: while inside his or her private residence, a social media member has a unique conversation with a military veteran about America’s “black-shoe navy.” Upon hearing the conversation via an eavesdropping app secretly placed on the member’s phone, those who are performing the surveillance will begin data-mining content and posts about America’s black-shoe navy. The snooping perpetrators will then steer any corresponding black-shoe navy content and posts to the social media feed of the member targeted. These cyclical events let targeted members know that they are under constant surveillance.
More importantly, due to the fact whoever is behind such surveillance would have an uncanny ability to steer content and posts in such ways, speak volumes about the social media platform itself.
They love taking potshots at your character but always come up empty-handed. As my late beloved grandmother used to say, ‘what are you looking for — something to STEAL?!'”
