Facebook is watching you.

It can recognize you when you walk into a store.

We have uploaded the information that makes this surveillance possible.

And those of us that haven't are weird and suspicious, or so I read recently.

It recognizes the picture you put on facebook.
Well, that's something else entirely.

I've warned ALL my family members not to put anything, anything, on the internet that they didn't want to be used against them. To a person, they replied,"I don't have anything to hide". I just shook my head and walked away. How can the government take our rights when we just hand them over freely without a whimper.

YES, take responsibility, you stupid people.

That is not a Facebook camera. That is a company called Face Cam, and they are trying to make it look like Facebook, using their color and a similar font.

It does not actually use your Facebook photos -- you must "train" the camera. It is a new spin on groupon, where if you opt in, you can get offers are stores who install the camera (what store would do that?)

It will never work. I'm pretty sure Facebook will sue this company, too.

If they can spot me from THAT -->

then it's time to be afraid.

It would be great for finding lost pets.

My Facebook photo is my dog. I wonder if she'll get any good offers if I take her to the pet store?

Just another source for Big Brother's Trapwire video collection?

I know you've deceived me, now here's a surprise
I know that you have 'cause there's magic in my eyes
I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miles
