Facebook now has been caught allowing police officers to post fake profiles on its software while they chase criminals – even though that violates the company’s policies.
And private organizations are calling out Facebook officials regarding the issue.
Dave Maass and the Electronic Frontier Foundation explain the organization long has been critical of Facebook over its practices.
“Facebook has a problem: an infestation of undercover cops. Despite the social platform’s explicit rules that the use of fake profiles by anyone – police included – is a violation of terms of service, the issue proliferates,” the report Monday said.
