| No Comments

The rise in popularity of social media is prompting governments worldwide to pay more attention to what their citizens are posting.

The New York Times reported in November that a medical student in India was arrested and charged with engaging in offensive and hateful speech on her Facebook page. She posted a status disagreeing with the seemingly forced mourning of a political party leader.

Slate reported that the United States government is no exception. As reported in an article in Slate, the FBI used posts and "likes" on Facebook to link a group of California men to al-Qaeda.
