Facebook Is Looking for Employees With National Security Clearances

Workers with such clearance can access information classified by the U.S. government. Facebook plans to use these people — and their ability to receive government information about potential threats — to search more proactively for questionable social media campaigns ahead of elections, according to the person, who asked not to be identified because the information is sensitive. A Facebook spokesman declined to comment.

“Questionable social media campaigns” = anyone running against Zuckerberg. He’ll make Hillary’s machinations look like child’s play.

    Companies not engaged in government work CANNOT access government classified information or data. Period. It doesn’t matter what anyone’s clearance is.

    • Watchman

      Yes, there has to be a ‘Need To Know’ not just an assessment that someone is safe to be trusted with this information. F’ing amateurs.

    • Alain

      Officially yes, but we have seen there is no shortage of “leakers”.

  • simus1

    Sounds like some shyster consultant has recommended that Z hire shysters with extensive previous NatSec jobs, experience, and “contacts”.

      • mauser 98

        how did he get security clearance?

        his actual legal name is not known
        SIN numbers etc.

        • Obama was sponsored by Pelosi & Co. That was good enough for everyone, even the Republicans. Even the judiciary (AG, judges) protected him against all challenges in courts of law. The rule of law did not apply in his case, because he was black.

    Zuck/Chelsea 2024!

  • Yes, privatized “Big Brother” will inevitably be even worse than the government variety. The owners of GAFA are effectively dictators of powerful empires stretching across borders.
