Super Secret Club…
Remember being in a secret club back in the day? Well word got out of a similar club worthy of national attention, but with a twist — this is a club that’s full of secrets.
I’m talking about the new social networking site for the CIA, the FBI and the National Security Agency.
A-Space — the program that’s being touted as the “Facebook for Spies” — is similar to the popular social networking site, except it’s only open to members of the 16 U.S. intelligence agencies. Anyone who wants to access the site must have the appropriate security clearance.
Think of it as a safe haven for the aforementioned analysts to share data with their peers and keep everyone abreast of urgent matters.
So what’s the ultimate goal behind the launch of the site? To protect the United States, of course.
So when these folks have information about terrorists or other highly confidential data, they can post it to the site and be assured that their peers have up-to-date information.
Do you think this move will help keep us safer? Or is it just another publicity scheme?
